The secure way of booking appointments online and ordering your repeat prescriptions.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
The practice does not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Please allow 48 working hours between requesting and collecting your medication. If you fax your requests in the evening or at the weekend, please be aware that we do not receive them until the morning of the next working day which is when the 48 hour clock starts
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a clinician at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
With Patient Access, you can now view, book and cancel appointments from home, work or on the move – wherever you can connect to the internet. What’s more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service – you can do this in your own time, day or night.
Patient Access is not just for booking GP appointments; you can also order repeat prescriptions.

From 1 April 2019 the Government intends to allow patients to view and download a summary of their medical records on line.
This will include Medications, Allergy’s and adverse conditions.
You will need to sign up to our online Access facility. If you already have online access for prescriptions and appointments, you need do nothing more.
We will post updates here for this service when more details are available.
Please note that this service is not available for pharmacies located in Wales.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
