Repeat prescriptions have to be approved by the doctor. You can get them from reception by giving two working days' notice.
If you want a repeat prescription, use the form on the right hand-side of your prescription. This lists your usual medication. Please tick only the items you want.
If you do not have the form please fill in a prescription request slip which you can get from the reception. You will need to put the name of the medication and how often you take it along with your personal details (name, address and date of birth). A receptionist can help you with this.
We are happy to post your prescription, but please enclose a stamped envelope addressed to yourself. We accept requests by fax but we do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone except for housebound patients. You can also order your repeat prescription online, please ask reception for details.
From 1st April 2011 we are offering patients a new online facility which will allow patients to request medication and make a doctor's appointment using EMIS Access.
All personal information contained on EMIS Access is protected using the highest standard internet security.
Patients will be able to request repeat prescriptions from home. Without visiting the practice you can order any repeat prescriptions that are due. Once requested you can track progress of your request and simply collect your prescription from the practice or chemist after 48 working hours. What to do next
In order to use EMIS Access you must first register for this service by asking reception for an online registration form. We will print you a registration letter with all the information you need including your PIN, practice ID, Access ID and NHS number you can create your account using this website.
Please make sure you ask for repeat prescriptions before your medication runs out. Please allow 48 hours excluding weekends and Bank Holidays
We keep a careful check on repeat prescriptions and you will be asked at some point to make an appointment to review your treatment.
We do not have access to provide immediate service over the counter if you have run out of medication. In these circumstances you would be advised to see the chemist who can provide you with a 48 hour provision of medication until such time as your prescription can be processed.
You can get information on out-of-hours pharmacists (chemists) from your local newspaper or police station.
