  • Third Party Prescription Ordering

    In Leicester City we are moving away from “third-party ordering” (Community Pharmacists ordering on behalf of patients). This means that most patients would have to order their repeat prescriptions directly through their GP practice, and not their high street or internet pharmacy or appliance contractor.

    Ending “third-party ordering” will help to ensure that excess medicines are not being ordered. This brings the city into line with the rest of Leicestershire and Rutland, where a similar change has previously been made.

    From 31st March 2020 your pharmacy will no longer be able to order your medication for you. We would therefore advise all patients where possible to either register for the NHS App @ www.nhs.uk/nhsapp or online services as above. Otherwise you will need to either post or bring in your request to the surgery
