PRESCRIPTION REQUESTSWe require 2 FULL WORKING DAYS to prepare your paper or electronic prescription as per NHS standard. This excludes procurement and dispensing time which is subject to separate clinical and safety standards.  You may not request items which are not on your repeat list due to local health policy restrictions in that items which are used occasionally and are available at a pharmacy must be purchased at a pharmacy, whether you are exempt or not from prescription charges. We encourage patients to register for SystmOnline prescription ordering. Just ask a member of our reception team.

New Patient Registration

If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure. Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bill. We also require one form of photographic ID.

New patients are asked to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a medical questionnaire. Both forms are available on the above “Registering Online” tab.

Please give us as much accurate information as possible as it will help us whilst we are waiting for your records to come through. If you are on regular medication please attach a copy of your repeat slip to your questionnaire and make an appointment with a GP when you return your completed paperwork.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
