How to Request a Repeat Prescription?
The NHS has joined the digital revolution and you can now order your NHS repeat prescription online via their repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions online are part of a move to digitalise all prescriptions and repeat prescriptions in the UK.
Electronic prescribing is such a simple and easy way to request repeat medication and you don’t even need a computer to do it. Your local GP surgery can liaise with your chosen pharmacist so that all of your prescriptions become electronic prescriptions saving the NHS both time and money and making it much easier for the patient who needs to make fewer trips to their local surgery.
If you have online acess then you can set up an account with a pharmacy like PTMD and manage all of your prescriptions online. Electronic prescriptions are completely secure and confidential and very fast, with a seamless service from your doctor directly to your chosen pharmacy. Your electronic account will issue handy reminders so you will never miss a repeat prescription again and run out of essential medication. You can also alter the delivery address to suit your location and remove medication that you no longer need.
Who uses repeat prescriptions?
Repeat prescriptions are usually for long-term or chronic conditions like asthma, eczema or diabetes.
How does it work?
Just sign up with your GP for the electronic prescription service and we will send the repeat prescription request directly to them for validation and authorisation. The handy account reminders will ensure you never miss out again. The reminder to re-order is sent out two weeks before the medicines are due to run out, just confirm the request attached to the reminder and we will do the rest for you.
