Electronic Prescribing

Dear patients

We have introduced the next phase of electronic prescribing at the surgery. It means that we will no longer be printing prescriptions (there are a few small items that are exceptions) and prescription’s will now be electronically signed and sent electronically.

For patients that don’t have a nominated pharmacist they will receive a printed token which they can take to a pharmacist of choice who will scan it and retrieve the electronic prescription. For our patients who have nominated a pharmacy (the majority of you) there is no change – your prescription will be sent electronically to the pharmacist that you have nominated.

We would encourage all patients to nominate a pharmacy so that they do not need to collect a paper token.

During Covid 19 lockdown we will require all patients to nominate a pharmacy for us to send prescriptions to – we are unable to allow patients to come into the surgery to collect.
