Please help the NHS by ordering your medication electronically from the GP practice if possible.
This will help your GP practice and community pharmacy by reducing the amount of telephone calls they are receiving.
It also means that if your GP practice has to shut or work from a different building they will still get your order. Order forms for medication posted to the practice may not be available to practice staff in these circumstances.
We would prefer that you either
· use the NHS app or,
· order on-line directly from the GP practice.
This is because these processes are directly linked to your GP practice and have a number of important safety features such as only being able to order the medicines that your prescriber has decided are safe for you and allows to be issued on a repeat basis.
*Some other apps, including those run by pharmacies, do not have these important safety features.*
