Has anybody had problems getting repeat perscriptions. My GPs surgery has a notice saying that it will take 48 hours to process a perscription request. Put in a perscription request last Thursday and still not got an essential drug which they did not put on the perscription. Waited almost an hour to see the GPs receptionist yesterday and spent 25 minutes waiting for GP surgery to answer the phone today. Then another 30 mins on phone whilst they checked if a new perscription was available. When you ask them a question they quote procedure back at you. But the procedures are not working.
I have emailed my hospital consultants secretary to see if that might get things moving quicker. Has anyone else had similar problems and if so how were they resolved.
