To order repeat medication, you can:

  • Order online via www.patient.emisaccess.co.uk  You need to register with the surgery to use this system. Please complete the Online Access request form and hand it to the Receptionist in person. Please bring photo ID with you to verify your identity. This service allows patients to access a secure website and make/cancel GP appointments, request repeat prescriptions and view their medical record. Your current repeat medication will be listed on screen and you can just tick the items required.
  • Your prescription will have a request form attached when it is issued, showing repeat medication. This form should be used when you are requesting repeat medication. You should make it clear by marking the box next to each item you require, or completed a request from at Reception.
  • You can drop the request in by hand at the surgery or you can post it. Please remember to include a stamped addressed envelope if you want the prescription posted back to you.
  • You can fax your request to the surgery on 01384 242109
  • You can register with many local Chemists who can request your repeat medication prescription on your behalf from the surgery, and many also offer a home delivery service for your medication.

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor (or nurse) will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or nurse to review your medication and a date will be printed on your prescription to remind you when this is due. We do this to monitor your illness and medication

Telephone requests will not be accepted unless you are housebound due to the possibility of error, you can order your prescriptions between 9.30am -11.00am. Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering.
