Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)

The Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service is locally based and is working collaboratively within our Primary Care Network. It is a new and convenient way for you to order your repeat prescriptions. All it takes is a simple phonecall.

You can contact POD on 08081 647678, Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 16:00 (excluding bank holidays).

Please visit our local NHS Website here for more details on the service.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) sends electronic prescriptions from GP surgeries to pharmacies and is how most prescriptions are now signed, sent and processed. Eventually EPS will remove the need for most paper prescriptions.

For a quick and easy process we would recommend you have a nominated pharmacy/dispenser, this is your choice and can be changed at any point. If you do not have a nominated dispenser then you will be issued a barcode, instead of the previously used paper prescriptions, which can be taken to a dispenser of your choice to be scanned.

Further information regarding EPS can be found here.
