Make repeat prescriptions easier using paperless prescriptions
If you have a chronic illness that needs management for some time, it is likely you will need to have regular medication. Common illnesses that require repeat prescriptions include diabetes, asthma, high blood sugar and, although not an illness, you will also need a repeat prescription on contraceptives. Repeat prescriptions are usually authorised by the doctor for a period of six months to a year, although with some medications, including controlled drugs, this may only be monthly.
There are two ways that you can use to have the prescriptions:
• Visit your surgery for a prescription within the agreed period when you request your medications.
• Join Murrays Pharmacy Electronic Prescription Service where medicine is delivered to you at the required interval
The trips to your GP can be time consuming especially when you are busy. You may also forget to take your prescriptions on time which can disrupt the management of your illness. Paperless prescriptions, on the other hand, do not require you to visit your GP every time you are supposed to get new prescriptions. Here is how to go about it
• Visit Murrays Pharmacy website and fill the online prescription form that is available online. You can also contact the team at Murrays pharmacy and tell them about the details of your prescription.
• You will receive a call from Murrays Pharmacy to confirm the contents of your prescription
How do we manage your prescription?
We receive your prescription electronically and have your medication prepared and ready to go when you need it. You pay for medicine by the use of your debit or credit card. This does away with the need to visit the Doctors surgery every time to take your prescription.
