Some patients may be issued with repeat prescriptions for their medication enabling them to continue treatment without seeing the doctor each time a prescription is required.
This can be done in three ways:
- At the surgery
- By post
If you would like to order your repeat prescription online you must first register to use this service. To register for this service you will need to contact reception, complete a registration form and you will be issued with a user name and password (the password can be changed to one of your choice when you first access the website)
- Click on the following link www.systmonline.tpp-uk.com
- Login using your username and password
- Click “Current Prescriptions”, indicate which item(s) you require (you cannot order medication until 7 day(s) before it's due).
- Click the “Request Medication” button and then you must logout from the website otherwise you will experience problems when you try and use the service again.
Please remember this system is to be used only for repeats. You cannot request any other medication this way. Please allow at least 48 hours before you require your prescription, to allow time, not only for computerised processing of the prescription, but also for checking and signature by the doctor.
At The Surgery
Please post your repeat prescription counterfoil in the prescription box provided and indicate which item(s) you require. Please allow at least 48 hours before you require your prescription, to allow time, not only for computerised processing of the prescription, but also for checking and signature by the doctor.
We are happy to post your prescription to you if you supply a stamped, addressed envelope.
You will be advised to see the doctor at certain intervals for a review of your medication, ie: three monthly, six monthly or yearly.
If you find that you no longer need to use an item of medication that you have been prescribed, please advise the receptionist and this can then be deleted. Please do not stockpile drugs that you are no longer using. If the hospital changes your medication, please inform us of the changes so that we can amend your records.
We are constantly being asked to control and reduce the ever-increasing cost of the drug budget of the National Health Service. To this end, we try and prescribe drugs by their chemical name (ie generically) except for certain specialist drugs and we constantly review prescriptions so that the best-buy drug can be used in treating any given disease. This means that prescriptions may occasionally change. If you have any doubt about your prescription, please ask to speak to the practice pharmacist or discuss this with the nurse or with your doctor on your next routine visit. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you but anything we can save on the drug budget can be used to treat other medical conditions within the NHS.
