Ordering your own prescriptions
From 2nd September the pharmacy will not be able to put your medication request in.
This will become your responsibility.
We find that many patients struggle to understand the system A display has been put up to help you with this. With commonly asked questions and illustrations of the tick list of a prescription which helps you order the correct item. You don't have to spell those awkward medical words!
You will receive a letter from NHS England but if you can check out the display it might help you in the coming months.
