Electronic Repeat Prescriptions
From the 12th June 2014 patients will not collect their repeat Prescriptions from the surgery. Before that date you need to let the chemist that you normally collect your medication from know that you wish them to be your nominated chemist. From 12th June you will order your medication in the normal way but your prescription will be sent electronically to the chemist you choose and you will just need to go straight to them to collect the medication leaving the normal 48 hours. This will eliminate any lost prescriptions and will save patients queuing to collect the script from us and then queuing again at the chemist.
All the pharmacies have the relevant paperwork and information for you and you do not need to notify the practice of your choice – you will be transferred automatically on the 12th June 2014 once you have spoken to the pharmacy.
