How long do chemists keep drugs for

With all the stuff going on now, and the fact that the chemist allows 1 person a time and the queue is always long, I did not pick up my prescribed meds for six or seven weeks. I received a couple of tests- the latest last week saying they were ready. When I wenot to get them they said they’ve put them back on the shelf. So I’m without meds for a few days while I wait for doc to reissue prescription and send to chemist. But now I’ve had time to think - if prescriptions are valid for months why couldn’t they just refill the prescription and give it to me? Why do I need to get a new one - any pharmacists happen to see this know? Hmm

You're getting replies on your other thread, maybe get this one deleted?

I can hide this one so you don't have to field two lots of replies?
