Hollyns Health and Wellbeing offer Electronic Prescriptions. Electronic prescribing is an NHS service that allows patients to choose to have their prescriptions sent electronically to a nominated pharmacist. You will no longer need to collect your repeat prescriptions from the Practice.

We will send your prescription electronically to your chosen Pharmacy, saving you time.

What we offer

Repeat Prescriptions


We issue regular medication (repeat prescriptions) automatically, this means you do not need to contact the Practice and ask for it to be re-prescribed.


You will need to order any ‘As Required’ and variable dose medications such as:


  • Pain relief
  • Inhalers
  • Nasal sprays
  • Eye drops
  • Creams and ointments
  • Insulin and other diabetic equipment
  • Liquid medication


If you need to be reviewed we will contact you in advance of your medication being due.


We accept prescription requests: –

  • Online
  • White re-order slip or handwritten requests posted or brought to the practice


We do not routinely accept requests: –

  • Verbally
  • Over the telephone (except in certain circumstances e.g. The housebound or Gold line patients) between the hours of 10.30am – 3.30pm, Monday to Friday. ∙ From the chemist (except in certain circumstances)


Remember to tell us if: –

  • Your medications have changed and you are still receiving additional items
  • If you no longer wish to continue taking a medication
  • If you are going on holiday and require your medication earlier than its due date – please note the maximum issue we can prescribe for a holiday is 3 months


Please allow 4 working days before collecting your medication from the pharmacy


Patients who have signed up with a Chemist for the ‘Electronic Prescription Service’ can collect their medication from the Pharmacy on the day the medication is due.
