|NHS England has recommended that medicines for minor ailments such as colds, hay fever and mild dry skin should no longer be routinely prescribed. Please purchase these in future, with advice from a pharmacy if needed. More info is available at www.nhs.uk/OTCmedicines
|Not all pharmacies stock all drugs. If you find your pharmacy does not hold your medication, you may wish to ask another pharmacy if they stock it. Please then let us know when you next order so we can do a separate prescription of this item if you choose us to.
Online requesting of repeat prescriptions
The practice offers the ability to request repeat prescriptions online via a Secure Web Interface.

To register for this service, please provide the surgery with a form of photo ID such as a driving license, passport etc.
Suggested Apps for medication ordering
In Northamptonshire, pharmacies cannot routinely order medicines for the majority of patients. This enables you to take control of your medicines, reduce the amount of medicines that are wasted and save the NHS money.
Instead, we recommend patients use SystmOnline (this is accessible via a website or App) or the NHS App (for patients aged 13 and over) to order medicines. This will help you to stay in control of your medication ordering and will save you from needing to visit your practice to order your medicines.
If you wish to use another online company or App to order your medicines, practices will only accept requests if the service links directly into your GP’s clinical record. The reason for only accepting requests that link into the GP record will help prevent mistakes when ordering and avoid delays in your GP practice being able to process these requests.
Please contact your practice to register for online access if you haven’t already done so. Alternatively, download the NHS App (free to download) from the App Store or Google Play.
Ordering repeat prescriptions:
On the right half of your prescription is a repeat prescription slip. Tick the box(es) for the item(s) you require and return it to the surgery. This may be done either by hand or by post, but if you post it, please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope if you wish your prescription to be returned to you.
You must give us notice of at least 48 hours after 15.30 (not including weekends and bank holidays) when requesting a repeat prescription.
