NHS Prescriptions are going paperless
This is great news! Your surgery is now offering you the opportunity of having your prescription sent over to us electronically instead of printing on paper. You don’t need to go to the surgery to pick up your prescription, saving you lots of time and hassle, plus, we’ll be helping to save the planet a little.
How do I set this up?
It’s really easy to organise. It’s a simple case of “nominating” one of our pharmacies to where you’d like your prescription sent to us. To do this, you can either:
• Call in to one of our pharmacies or speak to us over the phone.
• Call your GP and organise it with them.
• Download the form, sign it and either bring it in store or send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
