Patients must now regsiter with EMIS Access in order to use the online prescription service. If you would like to order your repeat prescriptions online please contact the surgery and ask to be signed up. The receptionist should be able to provide you with a full instruction letter and PIN on seeing proof of your identity (photo ID please). Alternatively an instruction letter can be posted.
Please note that online prescriptions are only available for patients over the age of 16. We apologise if this causes any inconvenience but there are strict rules regarding confidentiality of data.
With effect from 1 October 2014, patients registered online will be able to view a summary of their medical record. Presently the summary is limited to any allergies together with repeat and recent acute medication.
To access the new EMIS access system, please order your prescription here.
Most of our patients have a computer print-out showing their medication that may be repeated. When re-ordering there are a number of options available:
Please tick the medication you require and indicate whether you would like us to send your prescription to one of the local chemists. If a local chemist is used it may take up to 48 hours longer as it requires collection and delivery of the prescription by the pharmacist. Unless you tell us otherwise we will leave your prescription at the reception desk for you to collect.
Please give your print-out to the surgery - you can either:
- hand it in at reception (or leave it in box provided),
- pop it through our letterbox,
- fax it to us on 01737 370119.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page.
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.
We aim to have your prescription ready within two working days (eg if you give it to us on Friday it should be ready by Tuesday). It may take longer if it needs to be reviewed by a doctor or sent to a chemist, however, we strongly advise patients to allow longer than this period to allow for any queries or delays.
