Electronic prescriptions

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 4th March 2020.

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Repeat Dispensing

If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).

eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.

eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It’s reliable, secure and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they’ll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.

Using eRD you can:

  •  save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to
    order a repeat prescription
  • order or cancel your repeat prescriptions online (if your GP practice offers this
    service)
  • pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit
    your GP
  • spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice
  • save paper – you won’t need a paper prescription to collect your medicine from the pharmacy

For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or visit the NHS website: www.nhs.uk/eRD

Medication reviews

If you are on repeat medication we review your records annually to assess what appointments you may need for us to safely continue your medication. You will then be contacted to arrange these tests or appointments, including letting you know which members of staff you need to see and how long the appointment needs to be.

You may not need any tests or appointments, for example if you are being followed up in hospital appointments in this case we will not contact you and you don’t need to take further action.

If you do not respond to our requests to arrange tests or appointments we may have to limit the amount of medication we issue, or in rare cases stop the medication until you have attended a review. (for medication which may be unsafe if not monitored).

Medication reviews can now be booked with our in-house clinical pharmacists at the practice, please click here to access the leaflet or ask at reception for information.
