If you are on long-term medication, you will be given a computerised prescription reordering slip. This allows you to reorder repeat medication without seeing the doctor every time. After a specified number of repeats (usually three or six months), you will be required to see the doctor or the nurse for review to ensure that all is well before further prescriptions are issued.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this, but we feel this policy is essential to good medical practice.
The repeat prescription slip should be handed in to the surgery. Please allow three complete working days before collection, making allowances for weekends and holidays. Alternatively, you can post this to us, ticking off the items you require and sending a stamped self-addressed envelope, and we will post your repeat prescription back to you. We do not take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions as this can lead to mistakes. If you are going on holiday and ordering earlier than you should be, please make a note of this on the bottom of the prescription.
PLEASE DO NOT ASK THE DOCTOR FOR A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION IN THE COURSE OF A CONSULTATION OR A HOME VISIT.
Some of the local pharmacies operate a prescription collection service and will collect your prescriptions for you. This will enable you to collect your medication directly from the pharmacy without having to collect the prescription at the surgery.
Please contact reception who will advise you of the participating pharmacies.
You can now book routine 10 minute GP appointments up to 3-4 weeks in advance through our “SystmOnline” Services rather than you needing to make a phone call to the surgery.
You can also cancel appointments, rather than having to ring the surgery.
You can request repeat prescriptions using ‘SystmOnline’.
- To use these services you will require access to the Practices' Clinical System 'SystmOnline', so please contact the surgery in person where you will be given a unique username & password. Once registered, you can access these services by clicking on the relevant links below.
- Repeat prescriptions will still require 72 hours notice (3 working days), & need to be picked up from the surgery (unless you consent for your prescription to be collected from a named pharmacy).
