If you currently have repeat medication, you do not have to visit your Gp practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP can send it electronically to the pharmacist you choose, saving you time. You have more choice about where to get your medication from because it can be collected from a pharmacy near where you live, work or shop. You may also not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be more time for your repeat prescriptions to be prepared before you arrive.
If you are a new patient with the practice you need to make sure that you contact the chemist you want your scripts to go to so they can change your nomination for you. If you dont do this they will continue to go to your previous chemist.
