On-Line Prescription Requests

Update on Online Prescription Service

As of 31st May 2014

We are now offering a new online facility to order repeat prescriptions and book appointments.

Online Access

If you wish to register for the new online prescription ordering and appointment booking service you will need to come into the surgery to complete a form (see sample). The Recepstionists will then issue you with a dedicated PIN Number which needs to be used for completing the registration and accessing the online service online. Click here for further guidance and links to this EMIS Online service service.

The new online prescription ordering service is much faster and easier to use, - which simply requires you to tick boxes for making a prescription request. Please note that this facility is for REGULAR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ONLY.

Online appointments will be available to book between 3 and 20 days in advance. If you need an emergency appointment, however, you will still have to call the surgery on the day.

We have been trialling this new online service in the surgery for the past few weeks, and it is very important that the details that you upload are exactly the same as detailed in the completed Patient Access formprovided by the Reception staff.

If you come across any difficulties please do not hesitate to contact the Practice Manager who will be happy to help.

Repeat Prescriptions can be ordered via the Internet. This on-line service enables you to submit a direct on-line request to the Practice for a repeat prescription.

If you order on-line the days for collecting your prescription are as follows:

Day of Ordering On-Line Day for Collection
Saturday / Sunday / Monday Wednesday
Tuesday Thursday
Wednesday Friday
Thursday Monday
Friday Tuesday

Please note that Prescription Requests will not be taken over the telephone.

Other On-Line Services


Patient access to their GP record 

From April 2014 GP practices have been required to promote and offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print any summary information from their records i.e. medications, allergies, adverse reactions and any additional information agreed between the GP and patient.

Summary Care Record

GP practices are required to provide an automated upload of any changes to a patient's summary information, at least once every working day, to the Summary Care Record (SCR).

The requirement is on the basis of the current definition of the SCR, i.e. the core SCR record contains medications, allergies and adverse reactions and uploaded on the basis of implied patient consent.

The SCR should only be viewed in emergency or urgent care settings with the explicit consent of the patient unless the patient is unable to give their consent (for example if they are unconscious).

GP2GP record transfers

There is a contractual requirement to utilise the GP2GP facility for the transfer of patient records between practices, when a patient registers or de-registers (not for temporary registration).
