Information Notice


Repeat Prescriptions - we have reverted back to two full working days for repeat orders.  In accordance with NHS guidance repeat prescriptions are, in general, issued as a one month supply.

This enables prescribers to send prescriptions electronically to local or distant pharmacists - there is no longer a requirement for a paper prescription. There are a few exceptions to the service which include controlled drug prescriptions which have to be on a paper prescription for now.

Initially we will nominate the pharmacy where you have already told us you want to collect prescriptions from. You can change this easily by telling us that you want to collect from a new location when your next prescription is due, or ask the person prescribing the medication before the medication is issued. You can nominate a separate supplier for stoma products.

Dispensary patients are not affected by this service.

Patients may be asked by pharmacists to sign up to this or any other service. If you do it is important to understand the implications FOR EXISTING DISPENSING PATIENTS - ie for patients receiving their medications from our dispensary. This message does not apply to patients who live within a mile of a pharmacy as we are prevented by law from offering a service to these patients.

 

PLEASE NOTE:-

The EPS2 service will NOT include our GP dispensing services as dispensing doctors have been EXCLUDED from the service for the moment.

If you are a dispensing patient, once you have signed up to ANY pharmacy service YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE BACK TO A GP DISPENSING SERVICE without making an application to the PCT which will only be considered under exceptional circumstances and this may be rejected.

If you currently use our dispensary DO NOT SIGN UP to any commercial pharmacy services unless you are sure you never wish to use our dispensary services again. The government has determined that you will not be allowed to change your mind later.  We wish to continue to provide a comprehensive service to our eligible patients.
