Electronic prescription service

Introduction

Your GP can now send your prescription from their computer to ours, saving time and paper. Nominate our pharmacy to dispense your medicines by clicking on the button below or speak to our pharmacy team and we'll arrange everything else. You can then order your prescriptions as normal.

Service description

When you nominate us we'll update the NHS records so that your GP knows where to send your electronic prescriptions in the future. Once you have nominated us, we can order, collect and deliver your prescriptions whenever you ask us to. At this time some medication classed as controlled drugs are not available on electronic prescription. You can find out more about the electronic prescription service here.

Introduction

We can help by discussing various ways in which to make it easier to use your medicines in the right way. If after this discussion it is the right option, we can supply your medicines in a community dosage system to help you remember which medicines to take and when. A community dosage system is a plastic tray split into seven columns (one for each day) and four rows (one for each dose of the day, e.g. breakfast, lunch, tea).

Service description

We can prepare these for you each week and deliver them to your home, taking away the old tray at the same time, ask you questions about your medical and family history and about your lifestyle. Our pharmacist can then provide you with specific guidance and advice to help you improve your Service details.

We are now able to supply your medicines in blister pouches which offer an accurate, safe and hygenic way for you to receive your medicines. We will gradually be moving our all of our supplies over to blister pouches. Please get in touch if you have any queries or would like your medicines in blister pouches in the future.
