Electronic Repeat Dispensing
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), GP'S and pharmacies are moving suitable patients to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD).
You might be suitable for eRD if you receive regular or repeat medicines that do not change regularly.
How eRD can help:
- Your GP can authorise your medicines to be collected monthly or two monthly from your pharmacist.
- There's no need to contact your GP every time you need to order a repeat prescription - you can go straight to your pharmacy.
- Your pharmacist will check it is still safe for you to receive the medicine every time you collect.
- Your pharmacist will let you know when you need to contact your GP to review your medicines.
eRD can also save time and money for your GP practice, pharmacy and NHS.
Ask your GP or pharmacist about switching to eRD today.
