Prescriptions

Electronic Prescriptions

We now offer electronic (paperless) prescriptions for patients with stable conditions who use a regular pharmacy. 

Benefits to patients include: 
• No trips to the GP practice just to collect prescriptions, which will especially help those who receive repeat prescriptions. 
• Shorter waits at the pharmacy, as prescriptions can be prepared in advance. 
• Choosing a pharmacy that is most convenient to you, such as one near work, home or the weekly shop.

Please speak to your Pharmacist or Reception for more information.

Online Prescription Ordering Problems

Changes to the Online Service

Several patients have experienced problems when trying to order repeat medication online. There have been recent changes to the website which means items may not appear where they have previously. 

The main area of confusion is when patients reach the medication ordering screen and there are no medication listed. Please click here to download a short tutorial on how to find the list of medication.

The most confusing change is that your list of repeat medication from which you can order prescriptions now appears under "Medication", whilst "Prescription Requests" allows you to view orders you have already placed via "Medication".

Please check you are using the "Medication" screen instead of the "Prescription Requests" screen. 

Thank you.
