HC Deb 09 December 1986 vol 107 cc107-8W
Dr. Roger Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what is his policy towards the provision by pharmacists of explicit information as to the method whereby medication urgently prescribed can he obtained at times other than when the premises are open for business and rota duty dispensing;

(2) What representations he has received from individuals and organisations on the non-availability of urgently prescribed medications in areas which do not have a 24-hour, seven-day a week pharmacy service.

Mr. Mark Robinson

FPCs are encouraged to ensure that community pharmacists display clearly information as to whether the pharmacist may be contacted for urgent dispensing outside normal and extended pharmacy hours. We have received no representations about the availability of urgently prescribed medication.
