Systmonline can now offer you a summary view of your medical records online. If you wish to sign up to this you will need to come into the surgery and fill in a form (proof of identity is required). If you send a representative they will need to bring your written consent. A username and password will be issued to you and this will give you access to your repeat medication list, the ability to book appointments and a summary of your medical records.
If you are an existing user of Systmonline and wish to add the facility of viewing a summary of your medical records we will ask that you fill in a form too.

WE NOW USE ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE THIS SERVICE PLEASE NOMINATE YOUR PHARMACY
Nomination means you choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. You don’t need a computer to use EPS. You can choose up to one of each of the following:
- a pharmacy
- a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one)
- your dispensing GP practice (if you are eligible).
You can change your nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically just tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.
EPS is reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now.
Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser.
Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
If you collect repeat prescriptions you will not have to visit your GP practice just to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send the prescription electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
The prescription is an electronic message so there is no paper prescription to lose.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
If the prescription needs to be cancelled the GP can electronically cancel and issue a new prescription without you having to return to the practice – saving you extra trips.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as your repeat prescriptions can be made ready before you arrive.
You can get all these benefits if you:
- have a stable condition
- don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription
- collect your medicines from the same place most of the time
- use a prescription collection service now.
You will not get as many benefits, if you:
- don’t get prescriptions very often or
- pick up your medicines from different places.
