Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)


Prescription Ordering Direct service

NHS Prescription ordering direct (POD) service is the easy way for you to order your repeat prescription! 


All it takes is a simple phone call that you can make from the comfort of your own home – there’s no need to go into your GP practice or pharmacy.

You’ll also speak to a trained prescription clerk who can discuss your needs meaning you’ll only order medication when you need it – saving the NHS money to spend on other important services.
