There are a number of ways to order your medication.

• order repeat prescriptions – see your available medications and request a new repeat prescription

• view your medical record – get secure access to your GP medical record

• register to be an organ donor – easily manage your preferences on the NHS Organ Donor Register

Please note we are unable to accept repeat prescription requests by telephone

Electronic prescribing

Instead of issuing a green hand signed paper prescription, the doctor can now send the prescription electronically to your chosen pharmacist.

This means you don’t have to come back to the surgery to pick up the prescription, but you can go straight to the pharmacist and pick up your medicine.

This works even better if you request the medicine online as it means you can miss out on two trips to the practice.

You can nominate your pharmacy:

  • Visiting your regular pharmacy and signing up for electronic prescribing.
  • Ask the receptionist at the practice to register your chosen pharmacy.
  • You can also change your nominated pharmacy through the online portal under the medication section and then click on ‘change pharmacy’. However you cannot make the initial nomination online.

Medication reviews

The doctors at the practice regularly review the medication you are taking. They will sometimes call you in for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments, as it keeps you safe whilst taking medication.
