We now offer patients the use of a secure web site on the Internet to request repeat prescriptions, see lists of medications and recorded allergies.
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR EMIS ACCESS?
You must be a fully registered patient, and need a letter from us containing personalised access codes . To get this letter you need to come to Reception and ask for Registration for EMIS Access, you will need to show some photo ID, i.e. passport/driving license and proof of address, such as a recent utility bill. The Receptionist will find you on our computer system and print out your access codes and registration instructions. Once you have the access codes and instructions you can connect to the web site at any time and register.

The only EMIS Access feature that our patients can use at present is the repeat medications ordering facility, a list of medications and recorded allergies.
The first time you use the site you will be asked to create your account. Here you will need to enter the four registration codes given to you by the practice.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
If one of our clinicians has arranged a repeat prescription for you, and the review date has not expired, then you can use EMIS Access to request a repeat. Prescriptions can be collected two full working days after the request is submitted. (If you usually collect your medications direct from a pharmacy you will need to allow three full working days for your medications to be ready for collection). Once you have logged onto EMIS Access you can view any medication items by clicking List of your repeat medication in the Repeat Prescriptions section of the screen. Tick the items you require and then click Make Request. There is no need to add a message relating to your request. You will then see a confirmation screen, providing you are happy with the selection you made, click Confirm.
