To maintain the ease of requesting your repeat prescription online, we are introducing a new way to order your prescription.
There is no change to this service and you can continue to make your repeat prescription request online.
This service works in much the same way and allows patients to order their prescriptions safely and securely online.
The main difference is SystmOnline is linked to your medical record, this means it is easier to use, for yourself and the practice. If you have previously used the existing online services with Silicon Practice to manage your prescriptions and you now would like to use SystmOnline, you will need to contact the practice for a password (to maintain confidentiality a password will only been given to the patient and not a family member).
If you already use the Online appointments then you can use the SystmOnline repeat prescription facility straight away.
The NHS is introducing the Electronic Prescription Service. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.
This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.
Please speak to your local pharmacy for details.
