If you currently use the Repeat Prescription service at your local Meiklejohn branch and collect your medicines from the pharmacy but would prefer the convenience of placing your repeat order online, don’t worry. You can register for the Repeat Online service and choose “Collect from Branch” as your delivery option.

Our Online Repeat Prescriptions service means that you can get your medicines delivered to your door just when you need them, with minimum fuss. There’s no need to worry about getting your slip signed by the GP, or going to the pharmacy to collect your items on time.

We can fulfil any repeat prescription through our online pharmacy (subject to your surgery participation)*.

Here's how it works:

  • Register for our online repeat prescription service.
  • Once your registration is complete we will email you to confirm receipt.
  • Your nominated pharmacy will make the necessary arrangements with your surgery to order and collect your prescription.
  • Your prescription will be checked by your nominated Pharmacy Team.
  • If payment is required, we will contact you to take your payment details over the telephone. If you live in Wales or Scotland you may be required to pay for your prescription even if you don’t normally, as your prescription is being dispensed in England.
  • We will email or call you to let you know when your prescription is ready to collect from your nominated Meiklejohn Pharmacy or that your prescription has been dispatched for delivery.
  • We will email or call you two weeks before your next prescription is due, asking you to confirm which items you need for your next prescription (Only ordering the medicines you need helps to reduce drug usage in the NHS). It is important to reply to this email promptly, to ensure there is sufficient time for us to make the necessary prescription arrangements with your surgery
  • If your surgery is not based in the Bedford area and does not operate the new NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) we will not be able to offer the repeat prescription service.

EPS Nomination

A new way to get your medicines and appliances.

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

What does this mean for you?

If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time; You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive. Is this service right for you?

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:

don't want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription; or collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.
