Your GP can send your prescription straight to a pharmacy/chemist electronically, to save you coming to the surgery to pick it up. In order for this to happen you need to nominate a pharmacy/chemist. To do this please log in to the online service, Systm Online. You can then pick up your medication from there, and it will save you a trip to the surgery. For more information, please visit the NHS Electronic Prescription Service Information Page.
You may ask a local pharmacy to pick up your prescription for you (so you can pick up the medication directly at the pharmacy) or get a local pharmacy to deliver the medication to your home. Please note not all pharmacies will have this facility. Please ask at reception to set this up for you.
