Repeat Prescriptions can be requested via
Medicine Order Line – Telephone 0115 855 0260. Lines are open 8am – 4pm Monday to Friday
Direct from your Pharmacy – please visit your pharmacy of choice for more information.
Hospital Prescriptions: Must be collected from the hospital pharmacy.
Electronic Prescription Service EPS
We no longer issue ‘green’ prescriptions, they are either sent electronically directly to your nominated pharmacy or you will be given a paper ‘token’ to take to a pharmacy.
You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.
You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.
Cancelling or changing your choice of pharmacist or dispenser
You can change your choice of dispenser at any time. Simply speak to your GP, pharmacy of choice or the medicine order line as you order your next prescription.
Who can see my prescription?
Electronic prescriptions are reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that used to see your paper prescription.
