Processing Your Prescription
Prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:
1) Online - via your SystmOnline or NHS App account
2) In person - by placing your tear-off slip in the prescription box at the surgery, identifying the items you require
We are unable to take prescription requests over the phone
Prescriptions can take up to 3 working days to process.
Pharmacy dispensing times maybe up to 7 days for routine requests.
You can order your prescription up to 10 days before it is due.
If you require your prescription early for any reason (eg. if you are going on holiday), please provide these details with your repeat prescription request.
Electronic Prescription Service
You can choose a pharmacy or dispenser to dispense all your prescriptions. When your prescription is signed, it will be sent electronically.
You can collect your medication without having to hand in a paper prescription. Saving you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.
You still need to order your repeat prescriptions in the same way.
