Electronic Prescription Service


 

Please allow a minimum of 3 working days for electronic prescriptions.

In April 2014, we implemented an Electronic Prescription Service.  This service will mean that your GP will be able to send your prescription electronically to the Pharmacy of your choice to get your medication from – without the need for paper in most cases.  The Electronic Prescription Service is reliable, secure and confidential.

One of the main benefits of the Electronic Prescription Service is the ability to use a system called electronic repeat dispensing, for patients who are on regular repeat medicines.  The change with this system is that, once approved by the GP, the pharmacist will be able to dispense patient’s medication at monthly or two-monthly intervals, until the next medical review is required, without the need for the patient or pharmacy to order prescriptions from the doctor’s surgery every month or two months.  The pharmacist will know when the last authorised prescription has been issued to the patient, and will inform that patient that a review is due.
