Electronic Prescribing Service
The practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means for most patients we send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly, so you do not need to come to the surgery.
Please advise us if you wish to update your linked pharmacy, otherwise prescriptions will be retrievable by all NHS pharmacies in England, once issued by the surgery.
We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are for patients who receive regular treatment. The doctor will add medications intended for longer term use to the repeat prescription section of your records. You will occasionally be asked to book a telephone consultation with our practice pharmacist or your GP for the purpose of a medication review to allow safe prescribing to continue. Alternatively you may be asked to complete an online consultation to review your prescription. As part of this you may be asked to attend for blood tests, provide an up to date blood pressure or provide your current weight and height.
You can request your repeat prescription using the links above.
- We only accept requests by telephone from housebound patients who do not have online access. This is for reasons of patient safety
- Repeat prescriptions require two working days to be processed. Therefore please request your medication a few days before you run out.
- prescriptions are issued electronically to the pharmacy system. This is efficient, saves paper, reduces waste and is safer for patients.
- Should you see that you are due a medication review please submit the relevant online consultation form or book a phone consultation with our practice pharmacist or a GP for this purpose in advance of requesting your next prescription.
