How does the service work?

Patients may self-refer by visiting the pharmacy, or be referred by a health care professional e.g. the GP surgery may refer the patient to the pharmacy rather than waiting for a GP appointment.

 

Patients will register into the service at the pharmacy of their choice the first time they use it. Registration is only required once.

Registration

To register the pharmacist will need the following information:

                        Name                          Date of birth

                        GP practice                 Postcode

For patients who don’t pay for prescriptions proof of exemption will be required. Once registered the patient can use any pharmacy offering the service.
