You may be able to request a prescription for some of your medications without having to see the doctor every time.
- These must be requested AT LEAST 48 hours before the medication is required. The right-hand side of the prescription sheet should be clearly ticked with the items required and handed to the receptionist.
- You can also request medication on repeat prescription online. If you wish to start using this and other online services, you can create an account by clicking on the "Online Access" tab above or the link below. Once you have created your account, you can book one appointment at the practice. When you are next at the surgery, please bring in two forms of identification; one with a photograph (for example a driving licence or passport), and the other with your current address (for example a credit card or bank statement) so that we can complete your account sign up registration. You will then be able to benefit from all the functions of Patient Access. Please Note: utility bills will not be accepted as a form of identification. If you cannot provide evidence of your identity, please speak to one of our receptionists.
- If you already have a letter from the practice, you can register for the full online service straight away. Just follow the instructions when you click on the link below.
- For postal requests, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope with your prescription sheet.
- Telephone requests are only available for housebound patients.
- It is also possible to have your prescription requests handled by the local pharmacist. To use this service you will need to register with them.
- We conduct medication reviews every 3-6 months depending on your condition and you will be reminded of when this is due with your prescription.
- At times you may not be able to request prescriptions for certain medications without first having a review with a doctor.
