How to book a pharmacy service
To book a pharmacy service, tap the ‘my pharmacy’ bubble at the top left of your screen, then select your pharmacy. You can then scroll down through their list of available services. When you find the service you would like to book, tap on it to see a description and tap book now to find an available slot. (Time slots which aren’t available are greyed out.)
The service has now been added to your calendar and the pharmacy will notify you on your app when they have confirmed your booking.
If you don’t receive a notification, you may want to message or call your pharmacy to check by using the chat option on the pharmacies page in the ‘my pharmacy’ bubble.
Note: You can check your booking at any time by tapping the center of the home screen to access your calendar, and scrolling through to the day you made your booking for.
How to order a repeat prescription
To order a repeat prescription tap the green ‘Repeat Prescriptions’ bubble at the bottom left of your Healthera home screen.
Here you can see all of your repeat prescription requests and their current status.
Next, tap the ‘add’ button at the bottom of the screen and either select the medication from your list or tap ‘find medicine’ to add a medicine which hasn’t been entered into your medicine diary before.
If this is the first time you are ordering a repeat, you will be prompted to add your address, NHS number, registered GP Surgery and to set your nominated pharmacy.
Next, just tap ‘place order’ and wait for the app to notify you that your prescription is ready to collect.
How to join my pharmacy / Why am I added to a pharmacy nearby?
When you download the Healthera app, if you have been directed to do so by your pharmacy the app will add that pharmacy for you, if not you will be automatically added to your nearest pharmacy to allow you to use the app’s pharmacy related features.
If you would like to add a pharmacy yourself, tap the ‘my pharmacy’ bubble on the top left of the home screen then tap the plus ( + ) icon on the top right of the screen.
This takes you to a list of pharmacies that are on a map, which allows you to search for your pharmacy visually.
Merely tap on the pharmacy and then tap, ‘join pharmacy’ to add your pharmacy. (Please bear in mind you may have to change your nominated pharmacy on the settings page to be able to use some features).
