Electronic Prescription Service
A new way to get your medicines and appliances
The NHS is introducing the Electronic Prescription Service. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you. This service gives you the option to nominate the pharmacy you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP Practice just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions. Nomination forms are available from your chosen pharmacist or you can pick up a form from the waiting area in the practice.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see the practice pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
