Out of Hours Pharmacy

For details of pharmacies open out of hours (after 5.30 pm Monday to Saturday and all day Sundays/Bank Holidays) click ‘Out of Hours Service’ under the ‘Filter by’ section and enter the postcode or town/city. Saturdays are classed as a normal working day, but please check opening times before travelling as some Pharmacies are only open for a few hours.

Some Pharmacies are commissioned to provide an Emergency Medicines Supply Service for patients who have run out of their medication free of charge (subject to conditions) when their GP Practice is closed e.g. on a bank holiday, on a weekend or in some areas, after 6.30pm Monday to Friday. The service is only for patients who have an immediate need and cannot wait until their GP Practice reopens and availability depends on which Health Board area you live in. Patients will need to show evidence to the Pharmacist that they have previously been prescribed the medication e.g. empty packet / container with name label.

Pharmacies not commissioned to provide the service free of charge can still provide an emergency supply but patients will be charged for this and refunded on receipt of a prescription for the medication supplied.

To find a Pharmacy offering the Emergency Medicines Supply Service, use our Pharmacy search facility. The out of hours filter will also show Pharmacies who offer ‘Emergency Medicine Supply Service’.

Please note that for patients who live in the Aneurin Bevan Health Board or Cardiff and Vale Health Board areas, this service is only available via the GP Out of Hours Service.
