Electronic Prescription Service
You can register for the Electronic Prescription Service here. It is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy.
We encourage all our patients to use the online facility to request repeat medication. Your doctor may re-issue certain prescriptions without the need for further consultation. To request repeat prescriptions please inform us by post, phone, or in person, or by following this link, letting us know the drug(s), dosage and amount required. Patients with computerised prescription sheets should tick the drug(s) required. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope or arrange collection (please allow one working day for your prescription to be processed).
We would like to spend less on medicines you can buy without a prescription in order to free up funds for other valuable NHS services. Practices across North West London will no longer routinely prescribe medicines which are available to buy over the counter in pharmacies (and, in the case of some medicines, in supermarkets and other shops too).
If a medicine you need can be bought without a prescription, your GP may ask if you are willing to buy it. If you are not, it will be prescribed.
This means that if you require that medicine again you don’t need to make a doctor’s appointment but can get it straight away from your community pharmacist, saving both you and the doctor’s time.
Please view the list of medications which this applies to. We thank you for your co-operation on this matter.
