Prior Notification for Patients

Your pharmacist will no longer be able to order a prescription on your behalf from November 2017. Currently patients have access to the Repeat prescribing System from their local pharmacies, this involves the pharmacy of choice ordering the monthly medications for the patient. As from November 2017 this service will cease. Patients who use this service are now encouraged to order their own medications. They can still have the prescription sent electronically to the pharmacy.

Letters will be sent out out on 1/10/17 on our behalf from Medicines Management explaining the process to patients. Any patients who are unable to order their own medications for any reason or do not have someone who can do it for them will be managed by the surgery. These changes will not affect patients who have blister packs.

Why not Order Your Own Prescriptions Online?

A receptionist will be pleased to help you register for this service. You have no need to collect the prescription as it can be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy and they can still deliver as before. For further information please visit
