Electronic prescriptions are computer-generated prescriptions that are created by medical professionals so that they can send prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy.
Instead of writing out your treatment script on a piece of paper, your GP will enter it directly into his/her computer. Your electronic prescription travels from your GP’s computer to the pharmacy’s computer.
Electronic prescriptions are sent online through a private, secured and closed network so your prescription information is not sent through email or open internet.
Benefits of sending prescription electronically:
Fast – Your medicinal script arrives at your nominated pharmacy before you leave your GP’s office
Convenient – You need not have to make extra trips to submit your prescription at your pharmacy
Legible – There is no need of handwriting for the dispensing chemist to interpret
Economical – This NHS service makes it real easy for your GP to take control over prescriptions
The time needed to prepare and dispense your prescription will depend on a few factors such as the number of prescriptions in the pharmacy’s computer; how quickly they receive your prescription; and how many people are already waiting to get their prescriptions.
Your GP can send prescription electronically only to the pharmacy you nominate. If you do not want your scripts to be sent electronically, or your pharmacy does not provide electronic prescription service, your GP will handover a printout for you.
