Electronic Repeat Dispensing

By 16th April 2020 September 2nd, 2020 No Comments

We have been working hard to set up Electronic Repeat Dispensing for those patients on regular repeat medication. This service enables us to issue up to 12 months’ worth of prescriptions that are dispensed on a monthly or 2 monthly cycle by your pharmacist.

If you responded to our text message regarding this service your medication will be reviewed by one of our GPs or Shore Medical Pharmacists. We will then send you a text message telling you whether or not we have been able to set electronic repeat dispensing up for you. If you have not heard from us but your medication is due, please order your prescription using our online services or by calling us. Not all medications are suitable for this service.
