Your pharmacy caring for your health

NHS Prescription Dispensing Service

Free Repeat Prescription Management: We aim to make prescription ordering as simple as possible for you. All we need is your permission to order on your behalf and we will contact you when your prescription is due, check which medicines are required and place the order with any participating surgeries. If you are interested in using this service then please call on 0121 783 2042 to speak to the pharmacist or a member of staff.

Free Prescription Ordering & Collection: If you don’t need prompting to order your medicines, simply call us with your order, we will put this in to your GP, collect the prescription when it is ready, prepare the medicines and have them ready for collection or delivery. 

FOR PRESCRIPTIONS WITHOUT HASSLE CALL 0121 783 2042 to speak to the pharmacist or a member of staff.

Electronic Prescription Service: The Electronic Prescription Service makes it possible for prescriptions to be sent electronically to us. This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP
practice – instead, you can come straight to the pharmacy to pick up your medicines or medical appliances. Additionally, as the pharmacists will have already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare
your items in advance, so you are able to collect your medication with no extra wait.

EPS is reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices and pharmacies that see your paper prescription now. Call us on 0121 783 2042 to sign up for electronic prescriptions.
