COVID-19 Updates

  • If you need to visit the Practice please wear a cloth face covering. 

  • We are not currently accepting returns of unwanted/unused medications until July at the earliest.

  • To alleviate pressure on the surgery during this busy time our dispensary will only be open from 9-12 for collection of prescriptions.

  • Please keep to one in the Practice at all times. If you need to enter the Practice and there is someone in Reception please wait outside in a queue with a 2 metre distance from the person in front of you.

  • If you do enter the Practice please gel your hands with the sanitiser provided.

  • In Dorset our focus is testing of frontline staff first as the availability of testing is limited.  GPs may order an antibody test as part of routine blood tests where patients have received appropriate counselling and consent but we would expect these numbers to be low as general practice and local labs do not currently have the capacity to undertake this work. We will provide further information about access to tests for patients as the research and guidance develops on this but in the meantime we would ask that patients do not request antibody testing.

The surgery will be closed for training on:

Thursday 23rd July - 3.30 - 6.30

Thursday 17th September - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 13th October - 3.30 - 6.30

Tuesday 17th November - 1.30 - 4.30

2021

Thursday 21st January - 3.30 - 6.30

Wednesday 10th March - 3.30 - 6.30

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Repeat Prescriptions

Regularly prescribed drugs can be ordered in the following ways:

  • using the repeat slip attached to your prescription.

Managing Prescriptions with SystmOnline

For certain drugs, you can request a new prescription

All current repeat prescriptions are listed with the drug, dosage, quantity, last issued date and status. An empty tick box in the left-hand column means you can ask for a new prescription for that drug.

To request a repeat prescription:

Select the drug by clicking on the box in the left-hand column. If the item you require is not listed or if you need to include further information with your request, type the details into the Medication Request Notes field. When providing this information, you should bear in mind that it may be visible to all practice staff.
Click Request Medication. The Medication Order Summary is displayed, stating that a request has been sent to the practice to re-prescribe the item(s), and that the prescription will be ready for collection in three working days (after 2pm).
Click Return to Current Medication to return to the Current Prescriptions page where the status of the drug will show that it has been requested.

To ensure safe requesting of repeat medication, please do not telephone for repeat prescriptions.  

Prescriptions can be collected after 3 working days, or enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope for the prescription to be forwarded to you.  Tablets cannot be sent through the post.

If you are collecting Control drugs you will be asked for ID.

To cover absences for holidays etc. please order 10 days before travel.
