Nominate a Pharmacy for your Repeat Medication
The NHS and Doctors are encouraging patients to nominate a pharmacy so that repeat prescriptions can be sent electronically direct to your chosen chemist. This is more efficient and much safer as paper prescriptions can go astray or be delayed. It also saves you time as it speeds up your collection time.
Electronic prescriptions have a dedicated trail and can always be found and tracked.
To implement this, it would be appreciated if patients could confirm their choice of local Pharmacy/chemist they would like to collect their repeat medications from in the future.
Please contact the Dispensary on 014538 860459 or alternatively, when you place your next repeat prescription order with the dedicated Prescription Ordering Centre (01453 519219) you can nominate your choice of pharmacy with them.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Repeat Prescription Ordering Process
The surgery now has more choices available when ordering your repeat prescriptions.
You can now use any of the following methods to order your medication:
Use the direct prescription ordering process where possible to obtain your medication in the shortest possible time:
- Ring the dedicated Prescription Ordering Centre: 01453 519219
- Online by use of SystmOnline : Click on the SystmOnline icon on the home page or by clicking the link below:
- Nominate a pharmacy for Electronic Transfer of your prescription.
- Please be aware that some medicines, for example controlled drugs, cannot be transferred electronically at the moment and so a paper prescription has to be generated.
Under normal circumstances your prescription will be available 3 working days.
Check with you local pharmacy how long it takes to get your medication ready after they receive the prescription.
