A prescription for medications for the conditions below will not be issued as they can be purchased over the counter at your local pharmacy.
Online Repeat Prescriptions
Online ordering is available via the link at the top of this page. You will need to request a new username and password from the surgery to access this facility. In order to obtain a username and password you will need to provide photographic identification for confidentiality purposes.
Repeat Prescription Delivery Service
All patients with mobility difficulties have the option of arranging for repeat medication to be delivered to their home. The prescriptions are collected from surgery by the pharmacist operating the system that dispenses and delivers the medication to the patient's home.
Patients who wish to make use of the delivery service should complete an application form with their chosen pharmacy. Once you are registered with a local pharmacy, the pharmacy can also request your medication for you on your behalf.
Electronic Prescription Service
A new way to get your medicines and appliances.
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.
Is this service right for you?
Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:
- Don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.
- Collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.
It may not be if you:
- Don’t get prescriptions very often.
- Pick up your medicines from different places.
How can you use EPS?
You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose:
- A pharmacy.
- A dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one).
- Your dispensing GP practice (if you are eligible).
Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.
Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?
Yes you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
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.
If your medication has recently changed as you have been in hospital or your consultant has amended your medication, it is the patients responsibility to contact the surgery to arrange a medication review with the GP. This is to ensure we have been notified by the hospital/consultant and that a prescription can be issue without unnecessary delays.
