Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Your GP practice is open. The way you receive medical care will change.

This will mean:

  • You will receive most care by telephone or video
  • You may need to access services using the NHS app or online
  • Your prescriptions will be sent electronically to your chosen pharmacist – you do not need to go to your practice to collect the script
  • Your practice will not be prescribing medicines that are available to buy over the counter

Please make sure you:

  • Check online to see how your practice is changing
  • Do not go to your GP practice unless invited to do so
  • If you have symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and follow the latest advice on nhs.co.uk/coronavirus

Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.
We encourage all patients to register for this free service, which can be arranged directly with the pharmacy when collecting your medication. Alternatively, you can ask at reception.

Although we don’t have a pharmacy on-site, our reception staff will be happy to direct you to the most convenient pharmacy for you.

Repeat prescriptions

If you take medication on a long-term basis, you can order a repeat prescription by collecting a form from reception and returning it to us, either:

In person to the reception desk

By post (see address on the ‘Contact us‘ page)

By fax

Or:

Order your prescription by using online services (you must be registered)

We do not accept telephone requests for repeat medication.

We require three working days to process your repeat prescription. Repeat prescriptions of regular medication must be asked for, either in writing or online before 12 noon, and may be collected after 4pm on the third working weekday following the request.

We will post prescriptions to you only if supplied with an SAE. The tear-off slip attached to computer-prepared prescriptions may be used for re-ordering.

You can arrange for a pharmacy to collect your prescription and some pharmacies will deliver to housebound patients.

Your doctor will wish to review your treatment periodically. They will ask you to attend surgery when this is necessary.
