Electronic Repeat Dispensing (ERD)
What is Electronic Repeat Dispensing?
For patients on stable regular medication, it may be possible to offer ERD, where the GP can sign a series of prescription for up to 12 months and send electronically to your chosen pharmacy.
The advantages of ERD-
- You don't have to remember to order your prescription. Phone your pharmacy two days before you want your medication and can prepare it in advance for you.
- You can request more than one dispensing at a time at the pharmacy.
- There will be no panic at bank holiday- the pharmacy will already have your prescription
- You can change your chosen pharmacy at any time.

If you wish to discuss ERD please contact our reception team. It is suitable for the majority of patients who have a regular medication that are not subject to frequent changes; our receptionists will discuss your request with a GP.
