Electronic Prescriptions Information…

Having moved the bulk of prescribing to the electronic system we are delighted with the results and so are the patients.

First of all there are no bits of green paper to pick up transport or get lost; no laborious entries in the chemists records and with a fully flexible and traceable system we can watch as your prescription heads of to your nominated chemist be they next to the surgery or anywhere in the UK. We have even been able to send repeat prescriptions for patients who have run out on holiday to chemists in Cornwall and Scotland.

All you have to do is nominate the chemist to whom you would like us to send your prescriptions and virtually all medications can be sent there electronically for you to pick up.

Electronic repeat prescriptions will remain available to pick up from your designated chemist 2 days after you request them. ( Don’t forget you can request you repeat prescriptions on line too)
