What about prescriptions?

The majority of prescriptions are now completed electronically using the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) where the prescription will be electronically transmitted to a pharmacy of your choice.

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for pateints with longterm conditions who recieve regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will invite you to see your Doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

Please allow at least 2 working days before collecting the prescription.

Please note that prescriptions requests cannot be taken over the telephone due to the possibility of error.
