Electronic Prescription Service - now available
Every year we seek information from our patients about the service the practice provides. The information is collated and discussed with our Patient forum in an effort to establish what changes need to be made to improve the quality of the care we provide.
If you would like to take advantage of this service and haven't yet completed a nomination form, you should ask your preferred pharmacy to set your nomination. You don't need a computer to do this.
This will not affect the way that you order / request prescriptions.
Benefits for you
If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.
Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose - whether it's near home, work or the shops.
You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready 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.
