Working directly with your GP for a hassle-free service

Registered with a GP in England? Almost all GP surgeries in England are now set up to send prescriptions to pharmacies electronically, so you no longer need to pick up a paper prescription and take it to a nearby pharmacy. Pharmacy2U can dispense and deliver your NHS repeat prescriptions. We’ll communicate with your GP directly, which means one less thing for you to worry about.

How we work with your GP

When you place an order for your medicine through the Pharmacy2U ‘My Account’ area, we let your GP know and ask them to approve your request. If everything’s ok, your doctor will send us an electronic prescription ready for our clinical team to check and dispense before it’s delivered to your chosen address using Royal Mail's Tracked service.

Understanding the EPS

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS initiative first trialled by Pharmacy2U in 2001 before being fully rolled out in 2005. It’s designed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of prescriptions for both patients and healthcare providers. It means you have more choice and convenience when it comes to managing your prescriptions. You can choose which pharmacy you’d like your prescriptions sent to. This is known as a ‘nominated pharmacy’. You can opt to collect your repeat prescriptions from a community pharmacy, or have your medicines dispensed and delivered to your home by an online provider like Pharmacy2U. In England, over 95% of prescriptions are now issued and processed using the EPS.  

Everything you need to get started

If you're registered with a GP surgery based in England, you can register with us. Live somewhere else in the UK? We hope to be with you soon!

You'll just need to provide your personal details, your GP surgery, what medicine you're prescribed, and your NHS number if you know it.

Once we've matched your details with the NHS database, you're ready to choose your preferences and place your first order.

  • Worry free service

    This service has taken all the worry out of ordering repeat perscriptions. They remind you when perscriptions are due & they are posted & within a couple of days they are there on your door mat. Exemplary service. Thank you.

  • Great service

    Great service. With good liaison with my GP. And order always efficiently delivered. So much easier than queueing at the local chemist. I started using Pharmacy2U during the pandemic and no turning back.

  • The help line staff were excellent

    The help line staff were excellent, they understood my issue straightaway, told me they would need to speak to a line manager and would get back to me. The same person got back to me later in the day with an answer, issue resolved

  • Great user friendly service

    This is a very easy service to use.
    I order my medication online from the drs it goes straight through to Pharmacy2U they confirm they have received it and it is sent out for delivery. With emails keeping me informed of its status all along the way.

  • I get reminders when I need to order

    I get reminders when I need to order. It is easy to order and I get updates to let me know how my order is progressing. Within a very short time it is put out for delivery. It is then up to Royal Mail to post it through my letterbox.

  • Losing the monthly stress

    Being able to request my prescription from the doctors and knowing that the items I require will be delivered to my door without delay. Originally I would go to the pharmacy after a 5 day wait to find that my prescription was not ready, so thank you for making my life easier.

  • Excellent service

    Excellent service. Timely as ever. Prompted by P2U to re-order. From sending order to receipt was 7 days. Excellent as it includes GP’s approval sign off.
