Electronic Repeat Dispensing (ERD) patient information

Can I change pharmacy?

If a patient decides part way through a course that they wish to use a different pharmacy they can simply make a new nomination. Any prescriptions that have not already been downloaded will be available at the new pharmacy. 

Can I get an issue early (eg if going on holiday)?

A pharmacy can download and issue a RD prescription once the previous one has been downloaded, so if the patient is going away for 6 weeks they can have two issues dispensed, provided the pharmacist marks the first issue as dipensed before trying to download the next. This is at the professional discretion of the pharmacist.
