What if I can’t use your ordering methods?

We know some patients might struggle to use our ordering methods. This could be due to health conditions or patients being vulnerable. If you are struggling, then you can ask your nominated pharmacy to order on your behalf. You must inform us of this agreement which we will check with the pharmacy.

Where is my prescription?

Most prescriptions get sent to your nominated pharmacy by the Electronic Prescription Service. We call this EPS. We will send all your medications to your nominated pharmacy, unless you tell us not too. You can manage your nominated pharmacy on the NHS App to change where we send your medication.

If you cannot use the NHS App, you can contact the practice by calling 01253 344 544 or 01253 951 952. We can tell you which pharmacy you have nominated and change it for you.

What if I have a question about my medication?

If you have a question or a concern about your medication, you should contact us on 01253 344 544 or 01253 951 952. We have doctors and pharmacist who can review your medication with you. You can learn more about medication reviews by clicking here.
