NHS repeat prescriptions are prescription medications you receive on a regular basis. This means that you do not usually have to see your GP every time you need more of your medication. If this sounds like you, then you can make getting your medications even easier by signing up online for delivery services. Because online ordering is completely digital, it is a much smoother and quicker process than collecting paper prescriptions each month.
If you are worried that this sounds like it might be too expensive, this service is completely free to you and the NHS.
How to Order Your NHS Repeat Prescriptions Online
First, you need to find a pharmacy that offers these services so you can nominate them as your pharmacy. More and more pharmacies are offering delivery of NHS repeat prescriptions so it should be easy enough for you to find one.
Once you have selected a pharmacy, there are several apps and websites you can use to sign up for the delivery of your repeat medications. Some of these are NHS approved third party apps and websites, whilst some belong to individual pharmacies or pharmacy chains. You can also nominate a pharmacy directly with your GP surgery. Many surgeries have online services where you can do this, or you can go in person to nominate a pharmacy.
