We no longer accept repeat prescription requests over the phone. Our main reason for this is safety. Sometimes confusion with drug pronunciations amongst other things can cause mistakes which we hope to avoid where possible.
Requests for repeat prescriptions will be available within 48 hours (2 working days).
Items that you can obtain on a repeat prescription are printed on a tear-off strip as part of the prescription form. You must return the tear-off slip with the items you require ticked off.
They can be returned either by posting them in the box next to reception or by mail (Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope). You may also follow the link at the top of this page to the online form. You will need to carry out the simple one-time registration.
Please do not submit requests more than 5 working days in advance without making reception aware. The practice has limited ability to ‘store’ requests and can only accept advance requests if the staff have been specifically informed.
Your Pharmacy may have a separate policy to assist you with an advance notice request.
Order your repeat prescription on-line
You can request repeat prescriptions online by downloading the free NHS App from the App Store and Google Play on your mobile device.
You can also register for Systmonline access please contact the Surgery next time you want to request a repeat prescription and the staff can organise access to these services - you will need to confirm your identity and may need to provide official identification for our records, such as a passport or driving licence.
Do you get regular medicines?
Save time and help your surgery, your pharmacy and the NHS by using electronic repeat dispensing. Your doctor will send a series of repeat prescriptions to your pharmacy in one go, so there's no need for you to order them each time. Contact the Reception team to book a telephone consultation with our Pharmacist or a GP to start using electronic repeat dispensing.
Visit www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/eprescriptions or ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information.
Medication Reviews system:
You may only need to attend for a medication review every 3 -12 months depending on your clinical condition. The clinical team will assess your medication when your review is due and you may be asked to book appointments with the nursing team for routine monitoring blood tests / Management of your Diabetes/ Asthma/ Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease/Coronary Heart Disease/ Hypertension etc. Our aim is to ensure that your medical condition is managed by the appropriate person and avoid unnecessary surgery visits for you.
