Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top if this page. Please note; new users are required to complete a simple registration before using the service.
eRD (electronic Repeat Dispensing)
If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).
eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don't need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.
eRD allows your GP to prescribe your regular medicines for up to a year. It’s reliable, secure and confidential. Your regular prescriptions are stored securely on the NHS database, so they'll be ready at the pharmacy each time you need them.
Using eRD you can: • save time by avoiding unnecessary trips or calls to your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription • order or cancel your repeat prescriptions online (if your GP practice offers this service) • pick up your repeat prescriptions directly from your pharmacy without having to visit your GP • spend less time waiting for your prescription in the pharmacy or GP practice • save paper – you won’t need a paper prescription to collect your medicine from the pharmacy
For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or visit the NHS website: www.nhs.uk/eRD
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and a request to do this should appear on your repeat prescription slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
