Healthmail is a new initiative from the HSE which is a really convenient way for you to get your prescription from your GP to us here at Cobh Pharmacy.



  • Save time and avoid any unnecessary visits to the GP surgery.
  • Ask them to use Healthmail to send your prescription to
  • With the recent change in prescription laws because of the Covid-19 pandemic, your GP or Hospital Consultant can now send a legal prescription via Healthmail.
  • This is a safe and secure email portal exclusively for healthcare professionals who work with the HSE. This electronic prescription replaces the traditional paper prescription and the need for you to call to your doctors’ surgery to physically collect the prescription.
  • Just ask your GP to email your prescription to and once a prescription is received, your Pharmacists can dispense your medicines and pop you a message once your prescription is fully ready to collect.

Please note: Healthmail email addresses are for GP & Hospital use ONLY. It is not possible to receive a mail from outside of this network e.g., Gmail. Prescriptions sent to other e-mail addresses are not valid.
