This service is for people on regular medication. There are five ways of ordering your repeat prescription.
Whichever way you choose, we will have your prescription ready for collection or at your nominated pharmacy two working days after you request it.
For safety with medicines, we need full and accurate information about all medicines you are requesting, and may have to refuse a prescription if we cannot be sure of the exact strength and dose.
Order your regular medicines:
1. Online You can order your prescription through our secure system, EMIS Access. You will need to have first registered with the practice to be given your secure ID and pass code and you will be asked to chose a password when you first log in. After that you will have online access to your medicines list on your computer record at the surgery and can order your repeat prescription direct.
If you leave us an online message about your prescription we will always read it and give your query our full attention. However we are unable to reply to any queries by email because the system is so secure. If for any reason we cannot comply with your request we try to let you know why by writing on the prescription counterfoil or leaving a message with the receptionist.

2. By hand
You can bring the "counterfoil", that is, the printout from the right hand side of your last prescription, to the reception staff at any time. Put a tick in the box next to the item(s) that you need and hand in to the staff member on duty, or place it in the box next to the reception counter. Please do not submit requests on other pieces of paper as we need the full information from the counterfoil slip.
3. By post You can post the printout from the right hand side of your last prescription to us. Remember to tick the box next to the medicine(s) you need and if you want us to post the prescription back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Please do not send requests on other pieces of paper; we need the full information about your medicines from the counterfoil slip.
4. By pharmacy delivery We have arranged for several of our local chemists to collect prescriptions from the surgery and deliver the medicines to your home. If you would like to use this service, please speak to the reception staff or ask at your pharmacy. If you prefer to order by telephone, speak to your local pharmacist to set up this service.
For medicine safety reasons, we cannot accept telephone requests for repeat medication.
The practice operates an Electronic Prescription Service.
Please allow 24 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. If picking up from the surgery, your prescription will be ready after 4pm the next working day after ordering. If you have any problems please telephone the surgery.
You can complete a self-certificate form online or come into the surgery to pick one up.
This is a form that you complete for the first 7 days of sickness.
