Ordering repeat prescriptions during the coronavirus pandemic

Repeat prescriptions must be ordered at least 2 working days in advance. Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed.

Any problems please telephone the surgery.

You can order medication via SystmOnline.

Repeat prescriptions have to be reviewed regularly, at least once a year by a doctor. Our policy at Littlewick is to review your medication during your birthday month where possible. Please ensure you book your review well in advance.

Please allow two working days (48 hours) for your prescription to be processed. Request and collection should be between Monday to Friday, 10AM – 5:30PM.

If you have more than one repeat prescription, please try and order all your items together.

You can either deliver or post your repeat prescription form to the surgery. If you would like the prescription to be posted to your home address, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. There is a special box at the reception where you can leave your prescription request without the need to queue.

Alternatively you may order online via the link at the top of this page. If you would like to register for Systmonline you can collect an application form from the surgery or
download one here.

You MUST provide a form of photo ID for us to be able to validate your account. For more information contact the surgery on 01159 325229 and ask for Ryan. You must be 16 or over to register with SytmOnline. If you would like to register your child then you need to provide your own details and we will giveyou additional access rights to manage your child’s medication/appointments.

Please plan your requirements ahead, particularly during school holidays.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD)

If you get regular or repeat prescriptions, you could save time by switching to electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD). eRD sends your prescriptions electronically from your GP surgery to a pharmacy of your choice. It’s easy to use and you don’t need a computer or electronic device. Ask your GP or pharmacist to set it up for you.

For more information about eRD and how it works, ask at your GP surgery or pharmacy, or visit the NHS website.

Hospital Prescriptions

If you have been given a prescription by the hospital, you will need to collect this from the hospital pharmacy. We cannot transfer this onto a GP prescription
