Act immediately for holiday prescriptions, Keighley folk warned
11:10am Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
Airedale’s clinical commissioning group (CCG) is urging people in need of repeat prescriptions for the bank holiday period to act immediately.
It said forgetting would put unnecessary strain on GP out-of-hours services.
Dr Phil Pue, accountable officer for Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven CCG, said: “It’s often easy for people to overlook the bank holiday when it comes to ordering repeat prescriptions, but the out-of-hours services are there to deal with urgent health problems, not this.”
