Nominate a Pharmacy

When you request your medication, you can have your prescription sent to a pharmacy of your choice. This is called a nomination. 

Once you have nominated a pharmacy:  

  • you will no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from the practice. 
  • your nominated pharmacy will receive your prescriptions until you tell us to change or remove your nominated pharmacy. 

You can nominate a local pharmacy by either: 

  • Completing the Nominate a Pharmacy form on our website. 
  • filling in the nominate a pharmacy form at reception.

Hospital Prescriptions

When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive 7 to 14 days' supply of medication.This will include the medication which you require after your treatment.

The hospital may provide you with a yellow discharge letter for medication they would like you to request from your GP. Please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out as these requests take 72 hours to process. Please ensure your name is on the yellow discharge letter to ensure we can process the request for you.

Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by a Clinician first, and if necessary will issue you with a prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue your presciption as soon as possible, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by a Clinician.
