Nominate a Pharmacy
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.
Electronic prescriptions have a dedicated audit 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.
When you place your next repeat prescription order with the dedicated Prescription Ordering Line (0300 421 1215) you can nominate your choice of pharmacy with them.
Thank you for your co-operation.
Check with you local pharmacy how long it takes to get your medication ready after they receive the prescription.
