You can order prescriptions through SystmOnline and have them sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy for you to collect.
You will need to come into the practice or telephone to register for our online service.
EPS is a way of allowing us to send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice which saves you having to collect it from the surgery. Please advise reception of the chemist you wish to use.
When requesting a repeat prescription please use the online service where possible alternatively use your computer print out of the medication and tick the items you require and hand it in at reception. You can also post it to the surgery, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope we will forward your prescription electronically to the pharmacy of your choice
Please note, we do not take requests for repeat medication over the telephone, the exception to this would be for the disabled, elderly or patients who are vulnerable
If you wish a chemist to collect your prescription you will need to arrange this yourself. Some pharmacies will provide a home delivery service for housebound and elderly patients but you will need to ask your pharmacy.
We do not accept ordering of medicines from pharmacies unless you request that we assist you with this service
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse 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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
