Lists of GPs in post and their practice contact details

Pharmacies are required to provide a record of any urgent supply of medication they dispense on behalf of a GP during out-of-hours.

Additionally, they need both the prescriber and practice code to submit the transaction.

Access GP codes

This section of the Public Health Scotland website provides you with the relevant codes to enable you to submit the transaction.
