Patient Access connects you to the surgery by allowing you to order repeat prescriptions, access your immunisation and allergy history and in the future enable you to book appointments via your mobile or home computer.
You can register online using YOUR OWN email at www.patientaccess.com and then come to the surgery with a photographic ID. Once we have seen this, we will email you with your code which you must keep confidential as it will allow access to your personal information.
Parents/guardians will have responsibility for registering children under 12, but must provide the evidence to proove parental responsibility to gain access codes.

You can also request your repeat medication by indicating the items you require on the tear-off slip of your prescription, and posting it to us or putting in the Prescription Request box in the practice waiting room.
If you enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you.
Alternatively you can order your repeat prescription via Klinik.
Please leave 72 hours after your order has been received
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will need to ask reception to sign up.

Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.65
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
- 3-month PPC: £31.25
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
