We are a dispensing practice and dispense for the majority of our patients except for those living in Sherburn-in-Elmet, South Milford and Thorpe Willoughby
Patients on regular medication do not always need to see a doctor for a repeat of their medicines. To request a repeat of your prescription you can:-
- Hand in your repeat slip at reception
- Ring the main surgery number and use the automated repeat prescription Option (please note you must get a PIN number from the surgery first)
- Order online - to use this option you will need to complete a "SystmOnline Application" form, click here to go to the Patient Resources page where you will be able to print and complete the form. This will enable you to request a repeat prescription 24 hours a day.
If you have difficulty using the above options please contact us and we can discuss other options, for example if you use our dispensary or a local pharmacy they have managed prescriptions services where they will order the repeat medication for you saving you the trouble of having to contact the surgery
Prescriptions can be collected whenever the surgeries are open.
PLEASE NOTE - we need 48 hours to process your prescription but we aim to have all prescriptions ready to collect within 48 hours. Sometimes you may be asked to come in and see the doctor before a prescription can be issued.
Electronic Prescription Service for Non-Dispensing Patients
If a patient wishes they can nominate a chosen pharmacy and their prescription can be sent electronically from the surgery to the pharmacy so that the patient does not have to come to the surgery to pick it up. This service is available for most patients, however there are certain types of drugs that cannot be ordered in this way and if you are prescribed those items you would continue with the present system.
If you are a patient for whom the surgery dispenses your medication, this would continue without any change. You do not need to change how your medication is ordered and dispensed.
If you would like to use the Electronic Prescription system then you need to call into your chosen pharmacy and set up your nomination with them. This should be done at the pharmacy and not at the surgery.

PLEASE NOTE THAT AS FROM 1ST SEPTEMBER 2018 THE EMAIL REQUEST FORM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. YOU WILL NEED TO REGISTER FOR A SECURE ONLINE LOG IN.
