Hello and thanks for your question. I’d be pleased to assist you.

I am really sorry

The website is only meant to provide medical education and answers specific to your questions only.

The website is not authorized to issue any referrals, prescriptions or notes, so we are unable to prescribe medications, as we do not have access to your medical notes.

However, we are always here to guide you to understand your problem, make diagnosis and how to get best treatment

However I would guide you how to get antibiotics over weekend

There are 2 options for you to get the medicine quickly over the weekend

The first and best option would be to call out of hours GP to explain the situation and to get the prescription as the out of hours GP would have access to your records

The out of hours GP would send the new request to local pharmacy for your to collect

The second option is usually local hospital emergency where you can get medicines straight away for few days

In my opinion, the best option for you would be to call out of hours GP now to get prescription to local pharmacy

There is third option, which is online where you can see online GP and get the prescription also. However, that would cost you as they would charge you separately for video consultation plus prescription also.

Here are few links below:
