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.

Check with you local pharmacy how long it takes to get your medication ready after they receive the prescription.
