Repeat Prescription Services
How do I order a repeat prescription
Have your repeat prescription automatically sent to Forest Hill Pharmacy
Electronic Transmission of Prescriptions (ETP)
The way the NHS provides prescriptions to patients is changing, patients can have their prescriptions created and sent electronically directly from their GP to their ‘nominated’ pharmacy where they wish to receive their medications and/or appliances from. There is a transition period where both paper and electronic versions are created simultaneously so that the systems that handle the ETP versions have time to settle in and become the single standard means of issue.
With the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), patients can choose to nominate a pharmacy or another dispenser to receive their electronic prescriptions. Nomination must be the patient’s choice and cannot be altered without their consent.
Patients will normally be asked to nominate just one pharmacy for their prescriptions to be sent to and dispensed rather than a variety of pharmacies.
Our pharmacy is already equipped with computers and systems that are capable of handling Electronic Prescriptions. When visiting a pharmacy or your surgery, look out for the symbol shown in the image displayed here, which identifies where the NHS Electronic Prescription Service is being used.
