Ordering your repeat prescription

You will be able to see your available medicines and request for a new repeat prescription.

When you order a prescription online, you can have your prescription sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This is called a nomination.

Once you nominate a pharmacy:

  • you no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from your GP practice.
  • your prescriptions will continue to be sent to your nominated pharmacy until you change or remove your nomination. Any outstanding prescriptions you have ordered may still arrive at your current nominated pharmacy.

You can nominate a high street pharmacy in the NHS app. A high street pharmacy is where you collect your prescriptions in person. They may also deliver to your home.

Online-only pharmacies send your prescriptions to you in the post. To nominate an online-only pharmacy, you must register with the pharmacy through their website or contact them. It's not possible to nominate an online-only pharmacy in the NHS app. Please click here to view a list of online-only pharmacies.

If you usually get your repeat medicine from your GP practice’s dispensary, or use another dispenser for some specialised items (such as stoma products), you can still order it online.
