Changes to Repeat Prescriptions Ordering from 1st December 2017

Pharmacies and suppliers of medical appliances will not be able to order medicines on your behalf from 1st December 2017.  Instead you will need to order your repeat prescription directly from your GP practice.

 

What is changing?

Pharmacies and suppliers of medical appliances will not be able to order medicines on your behalf from 1st December 2017.  Instead you will need to order your repeat prescription directly from your GP practice by.

  • Online ordering through smartphone app or computer
  • Dropping your repeat prescription request off at the GP practice
  • Posting your repeat prescription request to your GP practice. Please allow 4-5 working days.

If you already order repeat prescriptions directly from your GP surgery this change will not affect you.

With recent changes, Pharmacies no longer have to to pick up prescriptions from the practice.  The new prescription processing sends all prescriptions issued by a practice, electronically to Pharmacies.

Why is this happening?

Under the old system some patients built up a stock of unused medicines. The NHS can reduce the cost of waste medicines through improving repeat prescribing systems. The money saved through reducing medicines waste will be used to fund prescribing of medicines to the population of Hillingdon.

The new system is also safer as your GP can monitor your prescription more easily and discuss the prescription items that you continue to need at your regular review.

Who can I speak with to get help with this change?
