Why should you order a repeat prescription?
Here are a few advantages of using this wonderful service:
Improved patient care
Prior to the invention of pharmacy automation systems, a pharmacist had to manually count, fill, cap, and label each prescription. The machine can now quickly complete these jobs, providing pharmacists more time to handle other urgent matters like administering immunisations and performing physical exams. Additionally, it allows pharmacists to give their patients greater treatment by giving them more one-on-one time. The prescription collection device is simple to operate as well.
Increased patient satisfaction
If customers must wait a long time to be served or pick up prescriptions, they are likely to be less pleased with the pharmacy’s services. The 24-hour prescription pick-up service takes care of customers’ needs much more quickly, which boosts satisfaction.
Increase in patient safety
This is a really important development. The use of electronic prescriptions is essential for ensuring that adverse medication occurrences are as few as possible. It is simpler to avoid errors connected with written prescriptions, such as choosing an unavailable or inappropriate medication or dosage, missing information, misreading an order due to illegible handwriting, and giving double treatment.
Minimise lost prescriptions
Due to their small size, paper prescriptions are simple for patients to lose. Because a new prescription needs to be issued, this can be frustrating and time-consuming for the patient as well as the pharmacist. Direct prescription delivery from a pharmacy is made possible by electronic prescribing. You no longer have to remember to fill a paper prescription!

How long after I order a repeat prescription will it be ready?
Your GP or doctor’s office typically needs two working days to process your repeat prescription request before sending it to the pharmacy. Depending on the pharmacy’s inventory, it will then be ready for collection within 2 to 5 days, on average.
Can you order a repeat prescription in Coventry without going to the doctor?
To request a repeat prescription, you do not need to visit your doctor. If you choose not to do this online, you can request your medication at your GP’s office. Consequently, find out from your doctor’s office how to notify them when you require a repeat prescription. They can ask a pharmacist to fulfil your request.
Can I collect a prescription on behalf of someone else?
Yes. You can pick up a prescription for someone else in paper or electronic form.
