Nominate your Pharmacy for your Electronic Prescription

Due to current COVID-19 status we will be reducing patient contacts by sending your prescription electronically to the pharmacy you have already nominated, or the pharmacy nearest to your home address if a nomination has not been made. 

Please allow the pharmacy seven days before collecting your prescription unless it is needed more urgently. They are currently under extreme pressure, with minimal staff to cope with the workload.

Patients will no longer receive more than 3months medication. This is to help thePharmacy community pharmacies maintain adequate stock levels for all patients.

Patients with stable long term conditions who collect medication on a regular basis will be automatically switched to electronic repeat dispensing. This allows the practice to issue batches of prescriptions, removing the need for the pharmacy or patient to order every 28/56 days. Patients will receive a text from the practice if they have been issued a prescription in this way.

Please do not order ‘just in case’ medication or to ‘stockpile’ medication, as this causes huge problems to supply of medication, and can leave other patients without medicines they need right now.

Thank you for your continued support at this difficult time.

If you have any suggestions that may help improve the situation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
