Electronic Prescription Service
For a while now, if you had a nominated pharmacy, your prescription would be signed and go to your chosen chemist electronically. From the 12th December 2019 even if you don't have a pharmacy nominated, your prescription will leave the practice electronically and wait for you to scan your prescription token at a pharmacy. To do this, you will still need to collect a paper token at the practice, so it's still best to nominate a pharmacy and save some trees, but if you want to be able to go to a different pharmacy each time, with a token you can!
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
