Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

I am sorry to hear that your prescription was not sent to the pharmacy.

If you miss simvastatin for 1-2 days, that should not cause any major issues.

However, if you don't really want to miss it over the weekend, you contact 111 now and they can prescribe it for you and send the prescription to your local pharmacy.

We are not linked to NHS at all as this is a private website.

They should have prescribed the medication for you without referring you anywhere. I used to work for NHS 111 and I know how it works.

You can also try one of the following telemedicine sites as they do prescribe medications but NHS 111 is free of charge:

Maybe by online, they meant for you to go online for your GP practice and order it that way. Nowadays, you can order your medications online through your practice's website and that should send a prescription to your usual pharmacy automatically.
