If the prescription was sent electronically it should be instant. I'd phone the GP to check.
I'll preface this by admitting I haven't seen a GP in about 13 years so I'm totally unfamiliar with how the system works now.
I've downloaded the NHS app and it's all verified etc with my nominated chemist. Managed to grab an appt today and was told he would send the prescription through to my chemist.
Fast forward 4 hours and still nothing on the app so I went to the chemist and they confirmed that nothing had come through.
Is this common?? Does it take 24 hours to update or has my GP forgotten to press the relevant button.
So as not to dripfeed, thanks to lockdown, total WFH since March and the death of a close family member, my prescription was for much needed anti anxiety meds so I'm keen to get this sorted asap.
Ironic really that arsing around with this is
not helping the anxiety!
Thanks in advance for any advice.
