If you are registering for the first time you will also need to visit one of the surgeries with some form of Photo ID to enable us to activate your registration. This is very necessary as you will be accessing your own medical records, therefore you need to be confident that the data is viewed securely. Each medical record is individual, therefore each individual needs their own access ID and password. This facility is not available for any person under the age of 16 years.
Please remember to give us a clear 72 hours to process your request before collecting your prescription from its designated location.
Please do try and remember to order your medications in good time to prevent you running out. Should you run out of supplies out of hours please refer to your local pharmacy, who should be able to help you. Out of Hours services are for emergency/urgent care only.
Your repeat prescriptions may now be sent electronically to your preferred pharmacy. Ask your pharmacist who will sign you up to the system.
As from 18th November 2019, GP surgeries across England are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically.
