DO YOU NORMALLY COLLECT YOUR MEDICATION DIRECTLY FROM A PHARMACY?
If the answer to the above question is ‘YES’ from March 2015, the surgery is able to send your prescription electronically to your normal pharmacy.
- This only affects the way your prescription is transferred between us and a pharmacy.
- It should have no effect on the usual management and collection of your medication. This will continue as normal.
- Electronic prescribing designed to improve our service.
This applies only to those patients who have previously asked to collect their medication directly from a pharmacy. However, if you would like to begin collecting your medication directly from any pharmacy please inform our receptionist who will set this up for the pharmacy you wish to nominate.
If you require any further information on electronic prescribing please visit the NHS Choices website. http://www.nhs.uk/
