Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for very limited purposes:
Important - These reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
There is separate advice about staying at home if:
Do not leave your home if you have either:
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Important - Call 111 for advice if you're worried about a baby or child.
If they seem very unwell, are getting worse or you think there's something seriously wrong, call 999.
Do not delay getting help if you're worried. Trust your instincts.
Use the quick NHS coronavirus status checker to tell us about your current experience of the virus.
This will help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus by showing where the virus is spreading and how it affects people.
We are changing our prescription system. If you wish to newly register
Or if you are registered with the new system, SystmOne then please click here to order your prescription. You can also order your prescriptions using the new Rotherham Health App which is available to download in the App store
Existing Prescription Ordering System This old system has now closed
For online ordering please sign up to the new Rotherham Health App which is available in App stores.
We have had our on-line repeat prescription service for over 2 years but following a Department of Health initiative and development by our clinical system supplier, we are able to offer an improved version. This will give patients the advantage of not having to update their medication lists themselves and the ability to see future booked appointments and previous appointments.
All patients newly registering should use the new improved version. We would also encourage all patients who are registered already to switch to the new service.
Please note to register for the new service, the patient will have to call at our reception to have a computer generated initial password. This is to improve security and is a requirement imposed by the clinical system supplier.
If the doctor has put you on a repeat prescription, you may obtain your medication by completing the re-order form which is attached to your prescription. If you lose this form, you can write your name and address on plain paper along with the medication you require and either place your request in the box which is situated in reception or post it to us.
Please include a stamped, addressed envelope if you would like the prescription posting back.
Allow 48 hours (two working days). If you post your request with a stamped, addressed envelope, please allow a couple of extra days. If you over or under order your medication we may telephone you to find out why this is happening.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form. Please be aware that it is only possible to register one patient per individual email address. If more than one person in the household wishes to register for online ordering it may be possible to create an 'additional user' on the main email address - check with your email provider.
Periodically you will need to have your medication reviewed. You may be asked to see the doctor, practice nurse or both. This may be on the same day or a week apart.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
Prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) are available in England and they can save you money.
NHS prescription costs
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
