We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 19th August 2020.
If you usually get a green printed prescription to take to a pharmacy this will no longer happen. You will be given a green prescription token to take to the pharmacy of your choice instead. This is not a legal document but contains the information the pharmacy need to dispense your medication.
In the current Covid 19 (Coronvairus) pandemic in order to reduce the transmission of infection we are encouraging all our patients to nominate a pharmacy to electronically send their prescriptions to so a token is not needed.
You can also sign up to order your prescriptions online. Information about doing this can be found on our website https://www.westleedsfamilypractice.co.uk/online-services/
The pharmacy you choose can be changed as and when needed. For example if you are away and need to use a pharmacy closer to where you are staying or if you sometimes use a pharmacy near work and sometimes near home.
We can even text you the barcode of your prescription to take to any pharmacy.
