Your GP can send your prescription straight to a pharmacy/chemist electronically, to save you coming to the surgery to pick it up. In order for this to happen you need to nominate a pharmacy/chemist. To do this please log in to the online service, Systm Online . You can then pick up your medication from there, and it will save you a trip to the surgery. For more information, please visit the NHS Electronic Prescription Service Information Page.
Paper prescriptions may also be able to be sent to certain local preferred pharmacy, although it will usually take longer for them to reach the pharmacy.
