find it a very useful way of ordering, and nearly always do it this way. The
prescriptions are passed to the pharmacy next door and they are delivered to
our home very quickly. Its a good system.
didn't know I could send them straight to the chemist, and am not sure if I
have to do anything first to arrange this
several unsuccessful attempts I gave up on the on-line route.
Have always ordered my repeat prescriptions online,since i got my computer
if the practice you deal with has 2 surgeries they need to make sure the
prescription goes to the right 1
is annoying when the pharmacy does not have your prescription ready when you go for it. despite giving them
plenty of time. for some reason they only start it when you are there.
find it much easier ordering repeat prescriptions online than having to travel
to the surgery to hand them in and I can order online at any time of the day or
night or even weekend.
know you could ask for repeat prescriptions to be sent to Chemist
find online repeat prescriptions a
brilliant idea. I don’t have to make a journey to my GP each month and I
am always informed when I am due
for a medication review when I attend for any blood tests etc. Saves me time
service which is user friendly & self explanatory
online is the most convenient way for me.
It saves me making two very painful walks to the surgery (one to drop in
the repeat order and one to collect renewed prescription). Now that my local chemist is running a
collection scheme this is also making my life a lot easier as I only now have
to go to the chemist when my prescription is ready instead of collecting from
the practice and then waiting for the meds to be made up. This is so helpful.
have ordered my repeat prescriptions for about 2 years on line, but I now find
it more convenient to let the chemist do it, mainly to my age and the chance to
have it delivered, as the surgery is not very close.
I have used on line prescriptions for about 2 years, but now I chose the
local chemist as they also deliver. This is a boom as the surgery is not very
close, but I would recommend it to everyone that can order on line.
use my husbands online records Account to order his prescriptions online . I do
it all the time for him as he is not computer friendly .
initial synchronisation of all medication needs to take place first to make
repeating online most efficient. After that as long as medication remains same and
especially if on 84 days supply the system works fine.
find it a really useful and helpful service.
seems to be done when sending a message with repeat order
I order repeat prescriptions direct from the chemist next door because they can
get them quickly and they deliver them for me.
difficult to access the online facility, via emis system
good service. I work full time and this makes a huge difference to me. The only
problem is when a repeat is removed without any contact which happened to me
is a really good idea, and probably works very well for the majority of
people. However, the only time I
ordered my prescription online, I completely forgot that I had, and only
remembered when I was nearly out of my medication. It is better for me to actually come to the surgery and
leave my prescription with the receptionist. At least the physical action stays in my memory!
online services are more convenient, i do feel " what with telephone
consultations" that the personal element of general practice medicine is
slipping by the way side.
wasn't aware that I could ask for my prescriptions to be sent to the chemist. I
know my husband does so I will consider this for future. Can you please let me
know if this is something I can do on-line when ordering my next repeat
prescription? thank you.I love being able to order them on-line. It is so easy.
think i am very lucky to be registered at a practise where i'm able to order
repeat prescriptions online. It's so easy to do and is ideal for patients with
mobility issues you can also have them delivered free of charge.
Doctor cancelled my repeat prescriptions without telling me because he wanted
me to have a mental health review over the phone. I had a mental health review
over the phone and he told me the prescription would be ready for the
pharmacist to pick up the next day. It wasn't there and no one informed me of
this so when I picked up my 4 weeks of bubble packs from the pharmacist it did
not contain my psychiatric medication. I've now been without my medication for
three days. Why did the doctor stop my prescription and cause me all these
problems in the first place?
method of ordering prescriptions on-line works well. Still not happy with the current system that is in place for trying to make an appointment to see a doctor
is fine to use but I find ordering via the Pharmacy more convenient.
do not know anything about getting the prescription collected by a chemist so
that I can collect it out of surgery hours. The chemist recently mentioned that
the practice were doing this, but I have not heard anything at all about this,
more information possibly?
Practice Software has made the process slightly more difficult but once
familiar with new layout I have not had any problems
tried to do this yet but really need to get to do it must try harder to
remember my passwords!!!
do it and have never had a problem
sometimes is slow at logging me in (Not so important) Website is very cluttered -
in design the mantra "Less is more" should be applied
was quite a long time ago when I had the problem so perhaps now this has been
tried and tested and everyone is more used to the process it will be worth
like Online Banking you could have the option of your computer remembering your
ID number and Practice code etc. therefore you would only have to input your
password to gain access.
idea. It saves me about half a gallon of petrol
had problems logging in when the system was changed but that was my error,
everything is fine now. Don't know
how I ever coped without online prescriptions!
have used on line ordering for 3/4 years but may go back to paper because of
the trouble I have had over the last 3 months
seems an effective and efficient system
is a great service but don't think it would suit my elderly parents.
family and I think the system you have is absolutely brilliant. We had been
ordering our prescriptions online for years. I am constantly spreading the word
about how fantastic our doctors surgery is. Some of our friends cannot believe
how we can order prescriptions an view our medical records, it's just amazing.
function to ask for a prescription to be sent to a chemist doesn't work. My mum
and I have both tried it and it doesn't happen. Otherwise an excellent service.
good service. Working full time means I am only able to pick up prescriptions
after work & knowing when it is available is important & very
convenient for me.
can think of no other way to improve the service offered
I have answered above under section 10, ordering repeat prescriptions online
saves time, you only order the items you need, and I can check that my
prescription has been actioned before I phone the chemist who will then collect
the prescription on their collection service. Soon when the surgery have actioned the prescriptions they
will send an electrified message to the chemist advising the items to be
prepared for either my collection or delivery by the chemist to my home, as I
no longer have my own conveyance and in bad weather the chemist is difficult to
reach. All this makes the online
service a vital factor when prescriptions are required.
than trying to make contact with the medical centre by phone which is rather
difficult and at times can be rather frustrating.. Most convenient ordering on line.
think it is an excellent system
once have I had a prescription that wasn't ready as the request hadn't been
printed off. This led to a delay but a call to the practice sorted it out.
have found that the service I use at the moment is the best one for myself
because the chemist is available 7 days a week and from 8.30am to 10.00pm
easy Very convenient
only difficulty I have with this system is that I cannot collect my
prescription until after 10.00, I generally place my request more than three
days ahead. I assume that it will be ready two days later, I do not see any
reason why I cannot collect it at 0830 in the morning. I do not understand why
the box is locked away from the front desk until mid morning. This is very
inconvenient for me.
have recommended it to my husband and he now uses it. It is useful as I usually think about those sorts of things
when the surgery is closed so do it on line is more convenient.
