Surely one should enquire at the time of asking ones Doctor assuming it is non urgent. If it's for  an appointment for tests then obviously you should act on this ASAP, if you book your appointment at the Pharmacists they will inform you.

Sadly things Flip are not so simple  In this red earthquake zone many hospitals have been closed and having to wait 1 x week plus for an appt in a city hospital due to the amount of work they are coping with can be a long time.  My question was, is there a time limit on how long the red form is valid for ?

This is what I managed to find Angie, so hope it helps. Better to get a full confirmation though.
The recipes can be issued to prescribe diagnostic tests (specialist visits, examinations) and therapy (medicines, treatment cycles etc.). The investigations and dependents therapies, in whole or in part, of the health service are prescribed on a special recipe SSN in stating, among other things, the holding of provenance ASL and the Health Code of the assisted (as an alternative to health code of the tax code).
Terms of use (expiry) of the recipe [5] :

  • Validity of the recipes that indicate requirements of diagnostic tests (specialized tests): 12 months.
  • Validity of the recipes that indicate prescription drugs: 30 days in the region to normal NHS prescription medicines for band A (also amazing Tables IV and V of the table 7 of Presidential Decree no. 309/1990) up to a maximum of 2 packs, 6 packs for chronic diseases or debilitating rare diseases, 6 for injectable antibiotics, intravenous drip solutions, and injectable interferons.

Since June 25, 2014, for patients with chronic diseases and rare diseases your doctor may prescribe medicines to a maximum of six pieces per recipe, as long as already used by the patient for at least six months. In this case, the prescription period may not exceed 180 days of therapy.
Then there are the special terms:

  • 30 days in the region for narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances (Law 12/01) by the SSN, for a thirty day course of therapy (special recipe)
  • 10 days throughout the country for other drugs (Tables I, II, III to Table 7 of Presidential Decree 309/90 by the SSN), for an eight-day course of therapy (other special recipe)
  • Three months on national territory for repeatable recipes of medicines not charged to the NHS, up to a maximum of 5 packages for the medicinal product (with some exceptions)
  • 30 days on the national territory by non-repeatable recipes for medicines not charged to the SSN, replace prescribed medication.

Round here in Toscana, a Pharmacist can make appointments for most everything, Operations including anaesthetics, Tests, Scans and they can even do it for different Hospitals in other regions. But as you say In your area where the infrastructure must be shot to poop after th eEarthquakes you may not be as lucky.
