Did you know that you have the ability to nominate the pharmacy of your choice when it comes to where your prescription medicine is dispensed from?
Your GP or a member of our pharmacy team may ask you if you want to ‘nominate’ a pharmacy. This means that your GP will be able to send your prescriptions electronically directly to your preferred pharmacy.
If you receive regular, repeat medication then nominating the most convenient pharmacy to you will enhance your medicine collection process. Collecting your medicine much closer to home makes life a lot simpler for you, enabling you to focus on other aspects of your daily life.
By nominating a pharmacy, this saves you a trip to the surgery to collect the prescription and allows the pharmacy team to have your medicines dispensed and ready for collection. Another advantage is that it allows you to collect your medicines from a pharmacy that suits you, such as one close to your workplace. It may also allow your pharmacy to request repeat prescriptions on your behalf.
It is easy to nominate a pharmacy – just have a chat with our pharmacy team or your GP to let them know! To find your nearest pharmacy, use our Pharmacy Finder.
