Prescriptions

Online Services

You can order your prescriptions online.

To do this you will need to download the NHS app.

Please be aware that this facility is not available to under 16-year-olds.  For security reasons, we can only provide you with your own login details.

Repeat Prescriptions

You can order your repeat medication by:

  • ticking the boxes on the right (white) side of the script, and handing that in at reception.
  • if you have lost this page- you can fill out a form at the reception desk.
  • give consent to a pharmacy to order your medication on your behalf

WE ARE NOT AUTHORISED TO ORDER PRESCRIPTIONS OVER THE PHONE.

Prescriptions can be collected after 48 hours either by yourself or a local pharmacy.

If you provide a STAMPED, SELF ADDRESS ENVELOPE with your order, we can post your prescription to your home.


Acute Prescriptions

This is when the Doctor gives you a prescription on an one off basis.

Unfortunately, these cannot be ordered via Patient access or The NHS app, and you will have to speak to a clinician before you can get some more.

Medication Review

It is practice policy that patients are regularly reviewed when taking medication on a long-term basis. Your review date can be found at the bottom of the right-hand side of your prescription.

Please make an appointment when your review is due.

If you request medication after your review date, we will be unable to prescribe you more medications until you have been reviewed by one of our clinicians.

Pharmacies

If you are unable to come into the surgery to order/ collect a prescription personally, a pharmacy can do it on your behalf.

If you choose to use a Pharmacy, it is important that we have your signed consent authorising them to do this for you.

If the pharmacy is not in the local area, we can send the prescription back to them electronically, and you can collect your medications directly from the pharmacy.

If you have problems getting to a pharmacy, most local pharmacies in the area will be happy to collect prescriptions on your behalf and deliver the medication straight to your doorstep!
