IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE WAY YOU ORDER REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

From October 2017, GP Practices introduced a new system which enabled patients to order repeat prescriptions themselves. Pharmacies and dispensing companies are no longer be able to do this for you.

What do I need to do?

There are different ways to order, including:

  • using SystmOnline - patient online service
  • downloading the SystmOnline app to your smartphone or tablet device
  • handing in the white, tear-off part of your repeat prescription to the practice
  • writing a letter to the practice

By registering for online services you can order your own medication, directly from the practice, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please click on the link below to watch a short video to understand how to use the patient online service, SystmOnline, including advice on how to order repeat prescriptions. Further information is also available on our website by clicking the tab 'Patient Online Services' on the left of the home page.
