At present only 18% of patients on repeat medication are signed up online. We would like to encourage patients to sign up to online prescription ordering. Ordering online is quick and convenient not only to you as a patient but also to our staff processing the prescription. If you have access to a computer, please consider this. It will free up the dedicated prescription line, leaving it easier for those with no access to a computer to get through. Please see information on how you can do this under 'Prescriptions' heading on our home page.
