From the 6th April 2020 we are entering a new phase in electronic prescriptions.
ALL prescriptions issued will now be "electronic".
This means you can go to your regular chemist if nominated to collect your prescriptions. If you have not chosen a nominated pharmacist, you can walk into any pharmacy with your NHS number and a few details like your name, address and DOB an you can get your prescription without the need of paper.
If you like paper, don't worry, you can still collect your prescription from the surgery with a barcode on it and get your prescription dispensed in any pharmacy. Whilst no-one likes change, this is a change for the better. It reduces the number of times you have to come in to the surgery, and also reduces the costs we incur in issuing your prescription to you.
Electronic prescriptions gives you the control, less hassle and reduced worry of losing your paper prescription.
From the 6th April 2020- there is no more guessing if you prescription is paper or electronic - it is simpler - its is safer - IT IS NOW ALWAYS ELECTRONIC.
If you have any issues or questions please ask to speak to our new Clinical Pharmacist, Harvey or our Prescribing Clerk, Leah.
