Echo can process both paper and electronic prescriptions for controlled medication. Your GP may issue this electronically or on a paper prescription depending on the type of controlled drug. 

If a controlled medication is issued on a paper prescription, you will need to post this to Echo to be processed. 

To use Echo to process your paper prescriptions:

  1. Visit your GP to pick up the prescription.
  2. Print out the Echo form and complete it, making sure to include your delivery address and registered GP address.
  3. Post the form, along with your paper prescription, to us. (Please note that Echo is not responsible for paper prescriptions sent to us that become lost in the post.)

Once we receive your form and prescription we’ll post your medication to you. Make sure you send us these well in advance of your current medication supply running out.
