A rota is provided by Community Pharmacies on Sundays, public holidays and in some towns in the evening when other pharmacies are closed.


Patients can obtain medicines and advice from a pharmacist when there are no other pharmacies open.


A rota usually lasts one hour and is at a suitable time for patients who have attended a GP Out of Hours Centre and need to have a prescription dispensed.


To find out which pharmacy is providing a rota in your town click on the Weekly & Holiday Rotas on the right.  Once you have opened a rota calendar, please note that it will cover several months throughout the year, so you are able to scroll down the page to display the relevant information.


For the GP Out-of-Hours services please click the link below for full information.  Please Note that this service operates from 6pm each weekday evening and 24 hours on Saturday, Sunday & Public Holidays.
