New system for repeat prescriptions and access to the GP record
On line ordering of repeat prescriptions
Patients have been able to order their repeat prescriptions on line via our website for many years. We will however be changing the current system of on line ordering so that patients can view and print a list of their repeat medications. To access this, patients will need to register for on line access. To register, please call into reception and collect your registration form. You will need to bring proof of identity with you - we will need photo identification such as a driving licence or passport, and proof of address such as a utility bill. All adults will have to come to the surgery in person to register for on line access, and due to confidentiality guidelines, we regret that we are unable to allow children under 16 years old to register for internet access. We hope to open up access to view repeat medications by November 2014.
The current system of on line ordering repeat prescriptions through our website will run in tandem with the new system for the foreseeable future. Patients who have already registered for on line booking of appointments do not need to re-register . We will notify patients through our website when patients can order their prescriptions via this new system.

Patient access to the GP record
We are working towards offering a new online facility to allow our patients to directly view a summary of key aspects of their medical record. The access will enable patients to view their current repeat medications, allergies and adverse reactions. We are hoping to make this facility available by February 2015. In order to access this service, patients will need to register for on line access.
Summary Care Record Upload
The practice will soon need to complete the upload to the national Summary Care Record. this is separate to care.data, and involves the transfer of some of your key health information to a national database, so that it can be accessed in an emergency if you are admitted to hospital. While most people will feel this is a helpful move for their care, some would rather not take part in this and you are able to opt out if you wish, Please read this for more details.
