To order your repeat prescriptions online you will need to register for Patient Access. (If you already book your appointments online you may already be registered).
Registering is easy; all you need to do is to come into the Surgery with some photo identification.
The Receptionist will then provide you with some easy to follow instructions so that you can register for our electronic prescribing system.
This system is reliable, secure and confidential. Your prescription request is managed completely electronically so it cannot be lost and enables it to be tracked throughout the process.
The details of your request are available to your GP directly via the system and they will authorise your repeat prescription or ask you to come in for a medication review if appropriate.
Once your request is authorised it is sent directly to the pharmacist of your choice.
You can view the progress of the request on your Patient Access screen.
We aim to provide a quick and accurate service for repeat prescriptions through our Electronic Prescribing System as it enables us to track your prescription easily from the time you request it to the time it is delivered to the Pharmacy for you to collect. Please note the following:
We pride ourselves at The Bell Surgery on efficiency in dealing with prescription requests and so if you are experiencing any problems requesting your repeat prescription please do contact the prescription desk so that we may assist you and if necessary liaise with the pharmacy to resolve any issues.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
