This practice is now able to offer the Electronic Prescription Service, so if you nominate a pharmacy, your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy. You can then go directly to your preferred pharmacy to pick up the prescription.
If you would like to take advantage of this service you can complete a nomination form and take this to your pharmacy. You can also ask your pharmacy to set up your nomination. You can also get a nomination form from our reception team.
This will not affect the way that you order / request prescriptions.
Benefits for you
What happens if I do not wish to use the service?
Nothing - you will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.
A full list of pharmacies who are offering electronic prescriptions is listed on NHS Choices Website. You will see ‘Electronic Prescription Service Available here’ next to the name of the pharmacy listed.
More information about the Electronic Prescription Service is available from your local pharmacy, at the GP surgery or on-line at www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/eps.
