Important Change to Repeat Prescriptions
Due to large volume of calls we are trying to deal with, we now no longer take requests for repeat medication over the phone.
Please use one of our alternative ways of ordering such as
- Online via our Online Service SystmOnline. Click here for more information.
- By email to email@example.com
- By dropping request slip in to the surgery or Middleton Pharmacy
We understand this may cause difficulty for some patients and if you wish to discuss further please ask to speak to the Practice Manager.
Patients can now view and request repeat prescriptions by logging on to SystmOnline. Manage your prescriptions quickly and easily wherever you are, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Please note you will have to register for this service - contact Reception for further details.

Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions can be made either in writing, stating your name and date of birth and listing the drugs and dose required, or by using the right-hand side of a previous prescription form.
Two working days should be allowed for your prescription to be processed. There are several methods currently available:
- By post to St George’s Medical Practice (please allow two days’ postage time in addition to the two working days for the prescription to be processed).
- By leaving your request at St George’s Medical Practice or Middleton Pharmacy.
- By email to St George’s Medical Practice: firstname.lastname@example.org including your name and date of birth, and listing the drugs and dose you require.
(Detailed instructions only will be processed.)
This facility is strictly for repeat prescriptions and should not be used to communicate any other matters.
Please allow two working days for your request to be processed.
We have provision to dispense to patients who live more than one mile from a pharmacy. The health service regulations on this matter are very strict and this service can only be offered to those patients who register as dispensing when they join the practice or when they move house. For further information, please telephone the surgery and a member of our dispensary staff will be pleased to answer your enquiries.
Will you be an Antibiotic Guardian?
The national Antibiotic Guardian campaign aims to raise awareness on how to use antibiotics in a responsible way that will help keep them effective for the future. We are encouraging our patients to take part by watching the Antibiotic Guardian video, choosing a pledge and becoming an Antibiotic Guardian at www.antibioticguardian.com.
Did you know?
- It is estimated that at least 5,000 deaths are caused every year in England because antibiotics no longer work for some infections.
- These antibiotic ‘resistant’ infections don’t just infect you; they can spread to other people in close contact with you.
- It is important we use our existing antibiotics wisely and make sure these lifesaving medicines continue to stay effective for ourselves, our children and grandchildren.
- Without urgent action from all of us, common infections, minor injuries and routine operations will become much riskier.
- Antibiotics should only be taken when prescribed by a health professional.
Colds and most coughs, sinusitis, otitis media (earache) and sore throats often get better without antibiotics. Your GP may not prescribe antibiotics for these conditions but your local pharmacy can help provide self-care advice and suitable over the counter medicines to treat your symptoms.
