previous problems with the way in which repeat prescriptions
were handled, some requests were never being received at the

So what benefits does it offer me?
The new system offers the aforementioned encryption
feature. We have also taken previous comments on board, and
now allow patients to request as many separate drugs as they

with our old system. We are just proactively implementing a
more secure service. The repeat prescription ordering
service is highly popular, and therefore, have carried out
our promise to take security a step further.
