Electronic prescription service

Lambeth Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service enables your prescriber - such as your NHS doctor or practice nurse - to send electronic prescriptions to a dispensing chemist, such as a pharmacy, of your choice.

This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for you, the patient, and for practice staff.

Collect your repeat prescription from your chosen pharmacy

If you usually collect your repeat prescriptions from your doctor you will not have to visit your doctors' surgery to pick up your paper prescription, saving you time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop in Southwark. You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as your repeat prescription could be prepared before you arrive.
