Ordering online repeat prescription request: using NHS App from your smart phone or on website.
Get the NHS App
You can now order your repeat medications online by using NHS App from your smart phone or on website.
The NHS App will not replace existing services. Patients can continue to use Patient SystmOne Access online or you can contact your practice in the usual ways if you prefer.
Online request is our preferred method to manage your medication requests for repeat medications as this avoids any chance for lost or misplaced scripts.
As well as order repeat prescriptions for collection at your practice or a pharmacy you have already nominated, you can also do the following:
How do I access it?
The NHS App is free to download from the Apple Store and Google Play. For more information or to download the NHS App please Go to: www.nhs.uk/app
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS):
Most prescriptions are now signed, sent and processed electronically.
Paper prescriptions will continue to be available in special circumstances, but almost all prescriptions will be processed electronically.
Choosing a pharmacy or other dispenser
If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from your GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.
You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now or more easily by using NHS App from your smart phone, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.
If you have nominated a pharmacy to dispense your medications, you will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.
PLEASE LET THE RECEPTION STAFF KNOW OF YOUR NOMINATED PHARMACY (IF NOT ALREADY DONE)
