All prescriptions are now sent electronically to the pharmacy and this is explained in more detail on the NHS website for electrionic prescriptions.
If you are taking the same medication on a regular basis, you should be able to obtain a repeat prescription for this without having to see a clinician.
Prescription requests take TWO WORKING DAYS to be processed.
Prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:
To help us identify you on our computer system, please provide or have to hand at least one of the following pieces of information:
Collecting your prescription
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all prescriptions are sent directly to your choosen pharmacy.
There are no paper prescriptions issued from the health centre.
For medication that you are taking on a repeat basis, you will need regular reviews.
Please take responsibility for your medication and keep track of the number of issues you have left.
Please book in for these reviews in good time to avoid any problems when you are running low on medication.
The current charge for a prescription is £9.15 per item and you can get more information from the NHS website on prescription charges.
It you have medication on a regular basis, it may be cheaper for you to purchase a ‘Prescription prepayment certificate (PPC)’ and more information can be found on the NHS website for prescription prepayment certificates.
The online ordering is for repeat prescriptions only. If you require an acute or one off prescription then please for the surgery or the POD team.
We have two ways of ordering prescriptions online
Please be aware, the above two systems are completely separate and independent of each other. If you wish to use both systems, you will need to sign up separately, for each one.
1) Patient Access
Through the Patient Access service you can not only request your repeat prescription you can also book and cancel an appointment with your GP.
The Patient Access website also allows you to book appointments with other NHS services and has a lot of useful information.
The other way to order your medication online is through the this link.
This is a system operated from this website that allows you to request repeat prescriptions by typing in what you require.
One of the benefits of this system is that the details of your most recent order are saved to speed the process up, next time you require an order.
You should not use one email address and set of login details for multiple people.
This is to not only prevent any confusion but to also make it easier for you when ordering prescriptions this way.
This is a telephone service to help patients manage the precriptions.
Rather than calling the surgery, patients will now need to call the POD team on 02476 246025 to order their prescriptions.
Lines are open between 8.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
The POD team may also be able to answer any queries that you may have with regards to your medication and can also alert you if a medication review or blood test is required.
If you would like a friend or relative to order on your behalf, you will need to provide consent to the POD team, the first time you order through the POD service to allow this to take place in the future.
If you are unable to order through the POD yourself, and there is no-one able to do it on your behalf, a local community Pharmacy will be able to order for you – please speak to your GP if you require a Pharmacy to do this.
The POD team will ask you to choose a local community Pharmacy for your prescription to be sent electronically to, using the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) – please see our website for more information on the EPS.
Your medication request will be processed as normal by your GP and the prescription will be ready to collect from your chosen Pharmacy, in two working days.
