We have now upgraded to an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
which will mean that all prescriptions will be processed electronically
and will be sent to your nominated pharmacy.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
Please ensure you have informed reception of your chosen pharmacy. If you need to visit a different pharmacy at any time, you can still receive your medication by telling the pharmacist your NHS number.

will still need to request your medication each month. We take two
working days to complete your
request, which will then be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your
choice. The pharmacy team then need time to make up the medication,
and the time for this is dependent on which pharmacy you use. In
cases allow the pharmacy 5 days to make up your medication. We can
accept requests two weeks before the due date. Unfortunately we
not accept requests over the telephone or by email.
Please request your medication by using patient online services such as:
Or you can supply a written request, please post in our letterbox.
If you have already registered for SystmOnline you can log in here to request your medication.
Some pharmacies will order your medcation for you, if this has been arranged by you. This is dependent on the pharmacy, and due to increased demand some pharmacies may not be able to offer this service.
The most efficient way
for you to order your medication is online, though our online
services. This is quicker for you, you can request your medication
from your own home, and quicker for the surgery to fulfil your
prescription request and send direct to the pharmacy. All you have to
do then is go to collect your medication when it is ready.
If you have not yet signed up for Patient Online Services, please contact reception who will be happy to help.
