Electronic Repeat Dispensing
If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).
eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It's easy to use and you don't need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.
eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It's reliable, secure and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they'll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.
Using eRD you can:
- save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription
- order or cancel your repeat prescriptions online (if your GP practice offers this service)
- pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit your GP
- spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice
- save paper - you won't need a paper prescription to collect your medicine from the pharmacy
For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or visit the NHS website: www.nhs.uk/eRD or https://digital.nhs.uk/services/electronic-prescription-service/explaining-electronic-repeat-dispensing-to-patients
If you have repeat prescriptions, your medication will be reviewed regularly by one of our Doctors. Please note information may be printed on your repeat prescription requesting that you either call the Surgery or make an appointment to see a Doctor regarding your medication. If you have not contacted the Surgery, you may only be given 1 month’s supply of medication and you will be reminded to discuss your medication with your Doctor. You will also be invited to the Surgery for an annual check either at one of our long-term condition review clinics or with your Doctor during general surgery.
Please contact the Dispensary or your local Pharmacist if you ever have any queries regarding your medication.
