The New Dispensary are taking part in a Pharmacy Waste Project it is supported by the CCG, a number of practices within South Warwickshire are looking at ways in which we can reduce waste and make our patients more aware of the costs of their medication. Please see the attached notice to highlight how you can help reduce waste.
Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service allows your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
To sign up, you need to speak to your preferred pharmacy and complete a form to confirm that they can receive your prescription directly.
Once you have signed up, your chosen pharmacy will receive your prescription electronically and you will not have to pick up your paper prescription from us.
If you have already nominated a pharmacy, your prescription will be sent to them electronically unless you tell us otherwise. If you need to obtain a paper prescription for any reason, just let us know at the time of ordering.
Online Repeat Prescriptions
We are now introducing an online booking service for repeat prescriptions. You must be over 16 years of age.
To register we will need your email address to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. After 48 hours please provide proof of identification (driving licence/passport) to reception to obtain your registration details. This will provide information on how to register with www.patient.co.uk. Do we have your current telephone/mobile number also? Confirm at reception.
Alternatively you can complete the Repeat Prescription Form to email your repeat prescription to the surgery.
