The next phase of electronic prescriptions is being introduced at GP practices in England and will be introduced at our practice on the 10th February 2020. This means if your prescription is not sent electronically at the moment it will be in future. You will be issued with a paper copy of your prescription that you can take to any pharmacy or other dispenser in England. The paper copy will contain a unique barcode that will be scanned by the pharmacist to download your actual prescription from the secure NHS database.
