- Order via the NHS / SystmOnline or other third party apps

Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

- Keep the medications in a secure, locked place out of reach of small children.
- Always read the instructions and use the suggested dose.
- Watch expiry dates – do not keep or use medicines past their sell-by date.
- Take all unwanted and out-of-date medicines back to the pharmacy.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner/practice nurse or the practice pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
