CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING
From 20th April 2015 we will be making changes to the way you currently order your repeat prescriptions. We will be replacing this with Emis Access which will enable you to order your medication directly into the practice clinical system. You will also be able to book appointments online to see a GP of your choice.
If you still want to place prescription orders online you will need to call into the practice and pick up a access registration form or we can email you one.
The myGP app lets you book GP appointments, blood (only blood tests) tests with nurses order repeat prescriptions and set up medication reminders on your smartphone.
The Electronic Prescription Service will go live on the 27th August 2015. You will be able to nominate a pharmacy of your choice. You will need to sign up for this with your pharmacy and at the GP practice in person.
