Please be aware we use the Electronic Prescription Service to send prescriptions electronically to local pharmacies. To enable us to process all prescriptions this way, please:
- nominate a local pharmacy
- register for online services to order repeat prescriptions, or
- use the NHS App
If you order your prescriptions online, you no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from the surgery. Instead, if the repeat prescription is pre-authorised, you can go to the nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 10th June 2020.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money and is more convenient for patients.
