Emergency Supply

In an emergency, as a pharmacist working in a registered retail pharmacy, you can supply prescription-only medicines (POMs) without a prescription at the request of a relevant prescriber or a patient.

Use this guide to find out about the requirements of an emergency supply and decide if an emergency supply is appropriate.
