Repeat Prescriptions

Ordering repeat prescriptions during the coronavirus pandemic

Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD)

If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD). eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.

For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or visit the NHS website.

Repeat prescriptions must be ordered at least 2 working days in advance. Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed.
