In order to eliminate the possibility of errors in your medication we require prescription requests to be in writing or by ticking the boxes on your prescription request form.
Please post your completed prescription request form (blank forms are available if you do not have one) into the red box that is situated in the front vestibule area, or post through our letter box if we are closed.
We accept requests by fax to 0131 660 5038.
