Electronic Prescriptions – the new normal!

Posted on June 2nd, 2020


Almost all NHS prescriptions at Essex House are now sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.   This saves your time, your pharmacist’s time and the time of practice staff too.   It should also prevent errors and streamline the whole process for us all.

If you have already nominated your chosen pharmacy you need to take no further action, and everything will continue as normal.

Did you know that you can also order most prescriptions electronically using Patient Access or the NHS App?

If you have not yet chosen a pharmacy, you need to give us your nomination as soon as you can.   The quickest and simplest methods are either to call reception on 020 8876 1033 or to send an email to :

Please note that private prescriptions, specially ordered items, and some controlled drugs given in installments, cannot be issued electronically, you will need to contact us in these instances. (see above details)
