The current online prescription request system is changing to a newer system called EMIS Patient Access. Please collect your registration form from reception the next time you are in the practice. The current will be removed on 30th September 2017.
The new EMIS Patient Access can be accessed by clicking on the following link
Please request repeat prescriptions at least 48 hours before they are needed if possible. If you take a medicine regularly it may be added to your repeat prescribing record and will be listed on a tick sheet which is attached to your repeat Prescription.
Other prescriptions that are short term or occasionally required treatments (acutes) may also be requested or reissued without seeing the doctor. Occasionally the doctor may ask that you make a telephone consultation to further discuss your request.
How to Request a Prescription
- Detach the tear off portion of your last prescription and tick the boxes corresponding to the medicines required. Hand this in to reception. If you have difficulty coming to the surgery you can send a request in by post. If you also enclose a stamped addressed envelope we can send your prescription out to you by return.
- Telephone the surgery and request a repeat Prescription. Please check exactly which medicines and doses are required before phoning. This is a less preferred method as mistakes are more likely.
- Request a prescription via our online form by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
- If you prefer, you can arrange for your local chemist to uplift your script after ordering it through the surgery. Please let us know the chemist of your choice.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
