What are NHS online repeat prescriptions?

NHS online prescriptions allow you to order your repeat prescription online.  This eliminates the need for you to attend the GP and then head over to the pharmacy to fill your prescription.  Instead, you will have your prescription sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice, and they would then fill the prescription for you.
