Ordering Your Prescription

Order your NHS prescription medicine with the Peak Pharmacy App! - pharmacy staff putting away medicine onto a shelf

Need to order an NHS prescription? Let's discuss your options so you can see what works best for you.  Once your order has been placed with your GP they will send us your prescription to dispense.

Top Tip: Many of our pharmacies can send you a text message when your prescription is ready to collect.  Ask your pharmacy team for more information and always order your medicines at least 1 week before you are due to run out

NHS App

Similar to the Peak Pharmacy App and available to download via the app store or online the NHS now offer prescription reordering, and access to parts of your medical record.  You may need to set up an NHS profile, but this is really easy to do.  Unfortunately, the NHS App does not allow you to pay in the app, or communicate with your pharmacy through a messaging system.

Shows your repeat medicine list

Some GP surgeries will let you book appointments via the NHS app

Other Alternatives

There are other ways in which you may order your NHS Prescriptions.  Like the above your GP Surgery may have their own Apps like Patient Access or Airmid. The choice of app depends on which software provider your GP surgery uses, so always check before signing up. Some GP Surgeries also have their own website where you can order medicines online as well.   

Looking for something that does not require a computer?  You can still drop a written request into your local GP surgery and in some areas, you can call a Medicine Ordering Line.  If you are struggling with ordering your medicines please speak to your GP surgery for further advice. 

It's important to note that many GP Surgeries cannot accept telephone requests, and most Peak Pharmacies are unable to order medicines on your behalf so make sure you get organised before you need your next repeat prescription and use one of the methods above.
