Mandatory electronic prescriptions was the easy bit in NHS paperless plans

Re: Three gas guzzling trips coming up

@Chloe: that sounds awful! It can be done better - the system my GP uses includes in-person, online, and telephone ordering of repeat prescriptions (both 24-hour services). The online and phone options allow for stating whether you want to collect the prescription or have it sent to a particular pharmacy (I assume these are e-prescriptions) to be dispensed and ready for collection two working days after. If there is going to be a delay (some of my wife's medications have had supply problems this year), the pharmacy will call to notify of the delay, and offer to deliver them if necessary.
