- Requesting a repeat prescription through your local pharmacy order and collect service

NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) Service
We will be taking part in the new NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service, the easy way for you to order your repeat prescription.
All it takes is a simple phone call that you can make from the comfort of your own home, there’s no need to go into your GP practice or pharmacy.
You’ll also speak to a trained health professional who can discuss your needs meaning you’ll only order medication when you need it, saving the NHS money to spend on other important services.
The POD will be able to view and process all online access requests and process them on behalf of the surgery. If you do not want the POD to process your online requests you may opt out by contacting the practice using our online Contact the Practice form and informing them.
Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.
We encourage all patients to register for this free service. You can register for electronic prescribing by completing our EPS registration form.
