At Westminster, we are hoping to offer the Electronic Prescription Service very soon. This facility allows you to choose or “nominate” a pharmacy for you to pick up your medicines or appliances from.
Your GP then sends you prescription electronically to the place that you have nominated. This means that:
- If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP, you will not have to keep visiting your GP Practice to pick up a paper prescription, saving time.
- You will have greater choice regarding where you can pick up your medicines from, as you can choose a pharmacy closer to where you live, work or shop.
- You may not have to wait as long, as your repeat prescriptions may have been prepared before you arrive.
Unfortunately, Westminster Surgery does not currently offer this service. However, we are working hard to rectify this and will update our patients as soon as this service becomes available.
