Pharmacy Cover Service


HUC has pharmacists working as part of the healthcare team to provide advice on medicine related enquiries and issues, prescribing for repeat prescription requests and providing self-care advice.

Our pharmacy service is available on weekdays evenings and on weekends.

During this period, if a patient finds they need assistance, we will have a fully qualified and trained pharmacist on duty to answer calls seeking health information, medicines information, pharmacy advice or healthcare assistance either by telephone or digital channels.



If a patient finds they have run out of their prescription, needs advice and support or requires information about emergency courses of medication, this can be managed by a covering Pharmacist or GP while the patient’s GP is closed.
