An easy way to get your medicines and appliances......
The NHS has introducing the Electronic Prescription Service in England. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.
This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.
All March pharmacies are able to offer this service. Ask a member of staff for more information or visit http://www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients
If you normally use a pharmacy outside March to obtain your medication, (perhaps you work in Cambridge or London) just ask a pharmacy, convenient to your workplace, if they can accept electronic prescriptions from the GP, and provided they can, they will arrange that for you.
