Saltash Health Centre has been using electronic prescribing for over a year.
Prescriptions can be sent to one of the local chemists, Lloyds Fore Street, Lloyds Burraton, Boots and Saltash Pharmacy.
We can send prescriptions outside the area under special circumstances. We will need the ODS prescribing code of the chemist.
Some prescriptions cannot be sent electronically and these have to be printed and collected by the pharmacies. These prescriptions cannot be sent outside of the local area.
We are taking part in a pilot for the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 14th June 2019.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
