Electronic Prescribing

The Electronic prescription service is available in our practice. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

If you collect your prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit the practice to pick up paper prescriptions. Instead the GP will send them electronically to a pharmacist you choose saving time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medications from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

If you would like to use this service you need to choose a pharmacy or appliance contractor for the practice to send your prescription to. This is called a nomination, and you can either do this at your chosen pharmacy or at the practice. You DO NOT need a computer to have this service.

If you would like more information ask your pharmacy or the practice. (20/05/2015)
