Nominate or switch to a Boots Pharmacy

Have your prescription sent to a Boots pharmacy of your choice, close to where you live, work or shop

What is a nominated pharmacy?

A nominated pharmacy simply means a pharmacy of your choice. This lets the NHS (England, Scotland, Wales) or HSC (Northern Ireland) know where you’d like your prescription to be sent to. Your nominated Boots pharmacy will receive the prescription directly from your GP and then prepare it ready for you to collect.

Flexible: We have over 2,300 Boots pharmacies including our midnight pharmacies* and from 1200 to 750 stores open on a Sunday. Find your closest one here

Helpful: Sign up to our Text Message Service next time you are in store and we'll send you a text to let you know when your prescription is ready to collect, pop in at your convenience.
