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, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.
You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice. Paper prescriptions will continue to be available in special circumstances, but almost all prescriptions will be processed electronically.
How to set up?
If you would like to set up a pharmacy nomination, you can do so by either calling reception on 01204 521 061 or call into the surgery and ask at reception. If you already pick up regular prescriptions at a pharmacy, you can ask if they are able to set you up as a nominated pharmacy.
How to cancel a primary nomination?
You can change or cancel your choice of dispenser at any time. Call reception on 01204 521 061 or speak to reception before you order your next prescription.
You should allow time for the update to take place to avoid your next prescription being sent to the wrong place.
