If you have registered for Patient Services, you can order your prescriptions online. If not, you should consider:
- Our online repeat prescription form
- Using the tear off slip issued with each paper prescription and hand it to reception. Please always use the latest one issued
- You can also order your regular medication via your nominated local pharmacy. Your prescription will then be sent there electronically. Many local pharmacies also offer a prescription delivery service. This is especially useful if you are housebound.
Please allow at least two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekend and bank holidays into account.
Signing Up To The Electronic Prescribing System
You will need to register using our online Electronic Prescription Services form.
This allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. You do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or a practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please visit our Health Review and Assessments Clinic for a list of available online medication review forms.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
