STATEMENT OF INTENT
Our Practice is committed to develop the delivery of better care to our patients utilising the Information Technology developed through and under the direction of NHS England. We currently use Summary Care Record, GP2GP Transfer and Patient Access Online for appointments, repeat medication requests and viewable summary care record. The Practice is committed to include detailed coded information as part of the Patient Access Online facility by 31st March 2016.
How to register for online repeat medication ordering
If you need your medication to be delivered, please support your local dispensary by using our in-house medication delivery service, rather than an online pharmacy. Medication can be delivered to your local shop or your home.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update for patients
The dispensary telephone lines are open from 8am to 1pm and 3pm to 6.30pm.
You can also order your repeat prescriptions online.
If you can give the dispensary team as much notice as possible for your repeat prescription it would be most appreciated.
Please remember to wear a face covering when collecting your prescription and if you are experiencing any Covid symptoms such as a high temperature, persistent cough or loss of taste or smell please do not come to the surgery. Stay at home and request a Covid test either via the gov.uk website or by calling 119.
We have enabled the prescription ordering module on our integrated online service so that our patients can access their medical records, book/cancel GP appointments and order repeat medications all from ONE system.
Our dispensing team will provide you with the details on how to use the new system. Please bring a piece of photo ID with you to enable us to confirm your identity when setting up your account. This is because the new system is directly linked to your medical record and the Practice must take necessary steps to ensure that access is being given to the correct person for data protection reasons.
Alternatively, you can download a copy of the form here along with the information leaflet and bring the application form along to the Practice with your ID when you next attend.

Online Access Registration Form
We require 48 hours notice for repeat prescriptions excluding Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays and a 28 day supply is issued
Medicines are supplied from the surgery for patients living more than one mile from a pharmacy. We cannot make up prescriptions issued elsewhere except from a dentist or the hospital and then only for patients registered at the practice.
Payment must be cash or cheque backed by a cheque guarantee card.
We have a computerised prescribing system and your regular medication is printed on the slip given to you with your repeat medication. We require 48 hours notice for repeat prescriptions excluding Saturdays and Sundays and a 28 day supply is issued.
You can request a repeat directly from the website or present your repeat prescription side slip in person or by post. You can contact the Dispensary team on 01359 253701, however, they are unable to take calls between 12:30 - 2:30pm. Finally you may subscribe to the repeat prescribing scheme.
Sometimes you will be asked to see a doctor or nurse before any more repeat prescriptions are given. This is to ensure that the medication is still the right one for you. If you have difficulty collecting your medicines from the surgery we are able to leave your medication for collection at village pick up points in exceptional circumstances.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
