In order to use this service, and to ensure patient security and confidentiality, each patient will be provided with a user name and password. Any patient wishing to be allocated with a user name and password is required to attend the practice in person to request this. We are unable to post these details, as staff are required to view identification e.g. passport, photostyle driving licence etc prior to the issue of this information.
Only the issue of repeat prescriptions are available to request.
It is the patient's responsibility to arrange collection of the issued prescription from the practice, leaving at least two working days for the prescription to be processed.
To ensure equal access to appointments, not all appointments are available to be booked online, therefore, if you are unable to book a suitable appointment, please telephone the practice wo see which other appointments are available.
Electronic Prescription Service - 22 October 2014
The Electronic Prescription Service enables GP's to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser such as a pharmacy of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients. You can discuss this with your usual pharmacist who will arrange for the pharmacy nomination form to be completed or ask at the surgery for more information. The Electronic Prescription Service is not compulsory. All patients deciding to use this service will still need to order their prescriptions as usual. We would like to remind you that practice staff cannot direct patients to a named pharmacy and it is the patient's choice to name a nominated pharmacy.
