Electronic Prescribing Service
Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) enables prescribers - such as GPs, Practice Nurses and Pharmacists - to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for both patients and staff.
Please speak to your preferred pharmacy about setting up a nominated pharmacy if you wish to take up this service. If you already have a nominated pharmacy, your prescriptions will automatically be sent electronically.
The process for patients who have their prescription dispensed at the practice remains unchanged.
If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically please inform your GP when you next need a prescription.
If you want to change or cancel your pharmacy nomination speak to dispensary. Please tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
Requesting Repeat Prescriptions
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- Online – using Patient Access via the link at the top of this page. Registration is required -please ask at Reception.

Please allow 2 full working days for your prescription to be processed and signed by your GP (not including weekends and bank holidays)
For dispensing patients please allow a further day for the prescription to be dispensed.
If your prescription goes to a pharmacy to be dispensed please check with them how long they will need to dispense the medication.

All our surgeries have dispensaries that are open every weekday 08:00 – 18:00 (see the Opening Times page for details of closures). The service is convenient and often quicker for patients to have their prescriptions issued, rather than going to a pharmacy.
Acute Medication Requests
Please either contact dispensary to discuss or use the messaging service in Patient Access.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
