How can I order my medication?
Please note: you should only request medication which has been authorised for repeat issue by your GP, consultant or pharmacist. Please DO NOT use this service to try to request any other items. If an item you think you need does not appear on your list, you will need to discuss the request with a GP or practice pharmacist, so please contact the surgery.
Please note we cannot accept requests for medication via the following:
Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)
To make the online service even more convenient, please register for EPS (Electronic Prescribing Service) with your pharmacist: When you request medication, the doctors authorise this and the prescription is sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy, saving you a trip to the surgery to pick up a printed prescription. Additionally, use this service if you would like to send us a medication-related query. For example, to request prescriptions in preparation for your holiday.
Know your medications
We strongly urge all patients to read about medications you are taking, so you are fully aware of what they do, how they work and potential side-effects – Medicines – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
All medication have at least two names – a generic name and one or more brand names. An example of this in another area would be: vacuum cleaner (generic) and Hoover, Electrolux, Dyson or Panasonic (brand names). Sometimes therefore, the name of the medication you are receiving will change, whatever its name. There are stringent safeguards to ensure that the medicine is identical whether it is generic or branded.
