NHS Prescriptions

We quickly and efficiently dispense NHS prescriptions whether you walk in or have ordered your prescription from your GP via phone (where applicable), internet or by dropping off your repeat order at your GP practice and contact us for our FREE Prescription Collection and our FREE Delivery Service.

Prescription Ordering and Collection
We can order your repeat prescription on your behalf from your Doctor. Simply drop in your completed repeat prescription request into the pharmacy or phone us on 0191 5367459 and let us know what you require. We will collect your prescription from your surgery when it is ready and can either deliver it for you or have it available for you to collect from the pharmacy.

We currently provide this service from all GP surgeries in Boldon, Fulwell, Whitburn and South Shields.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
This is an NHS service that enables your Doctor to send your prescription electronically to the pharmacy. This means that you do not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP surgery.

You can nominate one pharmacy to receive your electronic prescriptions and this can be whichever pharmacy is most convenient to you – close to home, work or where you shop. Nominations can be changed at any time by your pharmacy or your Doctor.

Once you have nominated a pharmacy, order your prescription in the usual way and then simply call into the pharmacy two working days later to collect your medication. If you would like to nominate East Boldon Village Pharmacy phone the pharmacy on 0191 5367459 or pop in. Alternatively complete the registration form (download below) and post / hand in to the pharmacy.
