Electronic Prescribing Service
You must nominate a pharmacy or dispenser to dispense all your prescriptions.
When you get a prescription, it will be sent electronically to the dispenser you have chosen.
To nominate your pharmacy - you can do so whilst ordering your prescription electronically, simply type the name of the pharmacy in the comments box. You can also go to your usual pharmacy and nominate with them direct.
You can collect your medicines or appliances without having to hand in a paper prescription. This is for repeat prescriptions as well as acute ones that your GP may issue during a consultation
Paper prescriptions will continue to be available in special circumstances, but almost all prescriptions will be processed electronically.
The main things to remember are:
No paper prescriptions will be issued
Nominate a pharmacy
Once nominated always collect your prescriptions from that pharmacy – no token needed.
