What is it?
The Boots online Repeat Prescriptions Service is a convenient way to manage your repeat prescriptions,
saving you time and extra, unnecessary trips to your GP.
To sign up for the service, all you need to do is complete a simple online form and we will contact
your GP surgery to order and collect your repeat prescription. You can then collect your medicines from
most Boots stores or, if it is more convenient, we’ll deliver your medicines to an address or
Post Office of your choice.

Common questions and concerns answered
Is my personal and prescription information safe and how will I know it won’t be accessible
to anyone else?
We will only ask you for information that is essential to enable us to
collect and dispense your prescription for you. The prescription details you enter are stored securely
on our systems and can be viewed only by Boots UK pharmacy staff and will not be visible to
Why do I have to pay for home delivery of my medicines when I qualify for free prescriptions?
Whether you pay for your prescriptions or have free prescriptions, we have to send
your medicines to you in secure, confidential packaging and pay for the delivery of these items to you,
so we need to include this in the cost of your order. The delivery charge is £2.90.
We are offering a service where you can order online and collect in most Boots stores free of charge,
so look out for details when you place your order online.
N.B. If you pay for your prescriptions and your order total is over £40,
we will deliver your medicines for free.
Do I need to be in for delivery
of my medicines and what happens if I am out?
Professional Pharmacy guidance requires
that someone over the age of 18 is in to sign for receipt of medicines, so the package will need to be
signed for. If you are not in when the delivery is made then a card will be put through your door with
details of where to go for collection.
