Ordering a repeat prescription
All prescriptions should be requested no more than 7 days in advance and you should allow two full working days before collection (so a repeat request put in on a Friday afternoon will not be ready until Tuesday afternoon).
Use Patient Access - see below how to register
At Your Local Pharmacy - Arrange through your local pharmacies to order and collect your prescriptions
At Reception - complete a paper form
By Post - send your request to us with a stamped, self-addressed envelope
Order your repeat prescription online at a time that suits you.
For basic access to prescriptions and appointments, you will need a linkage key or NHS credentials
Email your request from your own email address to Parkside.email@example.com with a copy of your passport or driving licence or complete a form at reception and show your ID to our receptionist.
If you would like more detailed coded online access to your medical record, please complete this form and return to reception or by email to Parkside.firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your passport or driving licence.

Problems with Patient Access?
Nominate your Pharmacy!
Most prescriptions can be sent directly to your local pharmacy via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
Email email@example.com to nominate your pharmacy
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP. EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP - instead, you can go straight to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines. Speak to one of our receptionists or your local Pharmacy to sign up for EPS or Email firstname.lastname@example.org
You may find that a particular medication you take regularly does not appear on your repeat medication list or on Patient Access - these are known as acute prescriptions.
Most commonly, these include certain pain killers, sleeping tablets as well as other medicines that are potentially harmful or addictive.
All special and acute requests will be checked by a clinician before being authorised.
Please order acute medication by E-mailing us here.
We will need to check our records to ensure that acute medication is not being overused.
For safety reasons, we may withhold the issuing of such medicines should they have been issued too recently.
