Did you know that you can now order your repeat prescriptions and book appointments online?
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service which allows you to order your repeat prescriptions online and have them sent directly to a pharmacy of your choice.
What does this mean for you?
If you usually collect your repeat prescription from your GP’s surgery in person, you will no longer have to do this, instead if you wish, your GP can send it electronically to your chosen pharmacy. This can be any pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
Unfortunately non repeat or “acute” medications cannot be ordered in this way. For these items please call the prescription line (0191 5673393, option 1) Mon – Fri between 9.00am and 12.00noon.
If you would like to register for online services, please contact the surgery for more information.
