Does anyone know how long these take to arrive? I sent mine off 2 weeks ago and no sign of it.

I think mine came after about 3 weeks, pretty lax, but it's worth waiting for as you then don't have to pay smile

Mine came through after about a week...

Haven't sorted one this time because DS's is still in date till October, think mine came through within a couple of weeks originally.

mine came after about a week - I'm in London.

Mine came after a week but that was after the second time I sent the form.
Waited over 6 weeks beforehand only to find out they had lost my form.
Worth checking if you haven't received it soon.
I am also in London.

I am still waiting for mine.. but my chemist say i should just tick the box for it anyway... as when it eventually does come it'll be backdated tot he 1st of the month x

Mine came in 3 or 4 weeks - but they never ask to see it so just tick the box!

It depends how many they're processing at any given time I think as I've had one back within a week before and another time it took a month. If you're concerned ring them and check they actualy have it.

As others have said though, tick the box on the prescription regardless - it's checked against your medical records somewhere along the line anyway.

Mine took about 3 weeks to come. I would chase it up if you haven't received it within 3 weeks I would say.

mine took quite a few weeks, at least a month i would think (i am in London)
