If you get regular medicines on repeat prescription, a new service is available meaning you won’t need to order them each time.
Your doctor will send a series of repeat prescriptions to your pharmacy in one go, so there’s no need for you to order them every month. Depending on your individual circumstances it may be possible to order up to 12 months prescriptions at the same time.
This saves time for you each month, and saves time for your Doctor as well. Electronic repeat dispensing is a reliable, secure and confidential NHS service. Unlike paper prescriptions, electronic prescriptions can’t get lost between the doctor and the pharmacy.
Visit the NHSBSA website or ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
To set up the service just mention it to the surgery next time your order your repeat prescription.
