Repeat Supplies of Medicine
We have upgraded to the final phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), which will mean that all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from March 2020. Electronic Prescriptions help save the NHS money and is more convenient for you.
If you already have your prescriptions sent directly to your preferred chemist we will continue to do this, albeit electronically. So you do not have to do anything for this to continue.
Please speak to Reception to sign up or read more about EPS here: https://bit.ly/308P8qu Your Prescription is sent directly to the chemist you wish to use, and you can pick up the medication from there when it is ready.
- Please allow 48 hours for all prescription requests to be processed
