What is Patient Access?
With this new and improved online service, you have the ability to order your repeat prescriptions online
Please contact our reception team to request a registration form, then follow the link to register.
All regular medications are recorded on our computerised system for prescriptions. At least once a year we will check you are still on the correct medication and arrange any tests that are needed. This can be discussed with the doctor during a telephone consultation.
It is necessary to order prescriptions in advance giving us at least 48 hours notice.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Lloyds Pharmacy, Kennoway have also requested an additional 48 hours to order items in and process the prescription. If you have any problems please telephone the surgery.
Please be aware that Kennoway medical Group has updated its policy for the prescribing of all controlled drugs in line with national guidance.

Repeated use of these tablets over a long period of time is no longer recommended and patients will be encouraged to reduce and stop these medicines altogether.
As it is recommended that you do not stop taking these tablets suddenly, patients will be invited to attend for review with their usual GP. The dose will then be reduced slowly through a planned timetable for stopping these tablets to minimise the withdrawal effects which can sometimes occur following long term use of this type of drug.
To ensure a consistent approach, patients will be asked to agree a ‘contract’ for the withdrawal of the drug with their GP. This outlines the planned dose reduction and any rules associated with this reduction. Patients will also be asked to nominate a pharmacy to which all prescriptions will be sent. Prescriptions for these drugs occasionally get lost or stolen, so this ensures the prescription arrives at the pharmacy safely and in time for the medicine to be dispensed.
Please note - Prescriptions for drugs for anxiety or insomnia:
Under these circumstances, please do not ask reception staff to request a further supply or ask triage staff for a GP appointment, as they will be unable to fulfil such requests. You will need a telephone consultation ONLY with the GP.
Further information about any of the details above can be obtained through discussion with your GP.
