On 1st February 2017 the practice went live with Electronic Prescribing (EPS) 

If you normally collect your paper prescription from the surgery, we will be able to send this electronically to the place of your choosing.  This could be a pharmacy near to your home or work.  

If you have a stable condition and don't want to go to your GP Practice each month to collect your repeat prescription you can nominate a pharmacy to collect this electronically.  This may mean that you do not have to wait as long at the pharmacy.

you can give the nomination to a member of the prescription staff or at the pharmacy that you wish your prescription to go to.

If you are unhappy with your experience of nomination you can complain to the pharmacy, dispensing contractor.  You can also complain to NHS ENGLAND - www.england.nhs.uk/contact-us/complaint/ 

We are also looking ahead to Repeat dispensing.  This is where you have a stable medication that only needs to be monitored once a year such as Well controlled Thryoxine or a Statin.  Following your annual review the GP can authourise 12 months prescriptions to go electronically to the chemist of your choosing.  Each month you then go to the chemist to collect your medication.  you would not need to order this with the practice.
