IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL PATIENTS
Portland Practice is currently installing a new electronic patient record system called SystmOne
The new system will bring substantial benefits for both patients and staff
The ordering and collection of prescriptions will be affected for some patients. Please see the leaflet below for full details.
Transition to SystmOne - Information for Patients
We thank you for your patience during this time of transition
Please allow three full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
Prescriptions which are not on your repeat list may need to be authorised by your own GP and may take longer than 3 days.
You can request your repeat medication by indicating the items you require on the tear-off slip of your prescription, and posting it to us or handing it in at the practice reception. If you enclose a stamped self addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you.
You can also ask your local pharmacy to request and collect your prescriptions for you. Telephone your local pharmacy for more information.
Request Prescriptions Via Email
You can email your surgery to request your prescription. Please include your details (including date of birth) and all the items you wish to order.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
