We now offer an Electronic Prescription Service whereby you can order your repeat medication in the same way; either by ordering online, at reception or by post however you do not need to come in to collect your prescription, it will be sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy.
Ask someone at Reception or at any pharmacy that offers EPS to add your nomination for you. Nomination means you choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. You don't need a computer to use EPS.
You can change your nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription. If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically just tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist at Reception. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
EPS is reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now.
Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
Please note: It takes up to 2 working days to process a repeat prescription for collection or 3 working days if you have nominated a pharmacy.
