Ordering Repeat Prescriptions Using the NHS App
Did you know you can manage repeat prescriptions in the NHS App?
You can easily choose where your prescriptions are sent. So, if you know you'll be away from home or you are moving home, you can change your nominated pharmacy from within the app.
You can also order your prescription at any time that suits you. There’s no need to wait until the GP surgery opens.
It’s easy to use, and, if you hit a snag, you can go to ‘Help’ in the top right-hand corner of the app or visit nhs.uk/helpmeapp.

Electronic Prescribing Service
The Manor Surgery is set up to use the electronic prescription service (EPS). This means that the surgery can send your prescription directly to your nominated pharmacy.

Nominating a pharmacy
For the EPS to work, you will need to chose a pharmacy to collect your medication from. This is called your nominated pharmacy.
You can nominate a pharmacy through the NHS App. Alternatively, you can call reception and nominate a pharmacy over the phone.

- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to future prescriptions.
