Patients who are on regular medication do not always need to see a Doctor for a prescription. Please note you will be required to have annual medication reviews by the doctor. Always allow two working days for us to issue your prescription before you pick it up from the surgery or chemist. Alternately you can enclose a Self-Stamped Addressed envelope and we can post your prescription to you. Prescription requests cannot be taken over the phone by receptionists – as they are not clinically trained. We also accept repeat prescription requests via email if you are unable to do this through the NHS App, please send your request in to: ENFCCG.email@example.com
If you are a housebound patient and cannot collect your prescription, then you can arrange for your local pharmacy to pick up the prescription from us and deliver it to you. Please ring your local pharmacy to discuss this option with them.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
Please click the link to view our leaflet about the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
Request repeat prescriptions
Patients can request repeat prescriptions through the app. If a patient has already nominated a pharmacy, prescriptions will be sent there. You can select a pharmacy anywhere in the country to pick up, this may be near your place of work or near your home, whichever is most convenient to you. If you do not nominate any pharmacy to collect from, they will be sent to the practice to be picked up.
Nominate a pharmacy
Patients can now set or change a nomination through the NHS App. (This does not apply to dispensing practices or dispensing appliance contractors.)
All prescriptions are reviewed regularly by the doctor. You may be asked to go for a blood test if necessary before the doctor reviews your medication. Your review date is shown at the bottom of your prescription. It is important that you do make the appointment requested in order for the doctor to assess your medication. Failure to make an appointment when requested to do so, will mean that we may not be able to issue you with further medication. It is for your own safety that you cooperate.
