Prescribing Policy for Patients Travelling Abroad

 

Using apps to order prescriptions:

In Northamptonshire, pharmacies cannot routinely order medicines for the majority of patients. This enables you to take control of your medicines, reduce the amount of medicines that are wasted and save the NHS money. Instead, we recommend patients use SystmOnline or the NHS App (for patients aged 13 and over) to order medicines. This will help you to stay in control of your medication ordering and will save you from needing to visit your practice to order your medicines.

If you wish to use another online company or app to order your medicines, practices will only accept requests if the service links directly into your GP’s clinical record. The reason for only accepting requests that link into the GP record will help prevent mistakes when ordering and avoid delays in your GP practice being able to process these requests.

Please contact the practice to register for online access if you haven’t already done so. Alternatively, download the NHS App (free to download) from the App Store or Google Play.
