Surgery Closure Thursday 27th January

Due to staff training we will be closed from 1pm on Thursday 27th  January. We will reopen as usual on Friday 28th at 8.30am .

If you have a medical emergency during this closure please call 999

If you need to speak to a doctor at any time during this closure, please call the surgery and your call will be diverted to Out of Hours where someone will be available to assist you.



Patients prescribed repeat therapies will find a request form with their medication upon collection from the Chemist. Please complete this form and drop it in to the surgery, send it to us in the post, post it through our letter box or order via our email address correspondence.lechlade@nhs.net.

If you are unable to do this, we have an online system for ordering repeat prescriptions called  SystmOnline  If you have already been issued with a SystmOnline user name and password, please click HERE to log on.

If you need a Systmonline user name and password, please visit Reception.

Prescriptions may be collected from the surgery or sent directly to any retail or online pharmacy. Patients who have always collected their prescriptions from the surgery may find our new Electronic Prescription Service to be particularly helpful (for further details, see the next tab).

Please allow 4 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. In case of difficulty, please telephone the surgery.

Electronic Prescription Service

Lechlade Medical Centre introduced the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) during May 2015 and we believe this to be of real benefit to many of our patients.

The practice has always sent paper prescriptions to certain local pharmacies to save our patients the inconvenience of having to collect their prescription from the reception desk and take it to the pharmacy themselves.

Some patients have preferred to collect their prescription so that they can take it to a pharmacy close to where they live, work or shop. This is no longer necessary as your GP can create your prescription in the form of an electronic message which he or she can send to any pharmacy, online pharmacy service or dispensing appliance contractor.

Is this service right for you?

You are likely to find the new service helpful if you have a stable condition and tend to use the same pharmacy from one month to the next.

It is unlikely to be suitable if you only have an occasional prescription or switch between pharmacies.

How can you use EPS?

All you need to do is ask any participating pharmacy, online pharmacy service or dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one), to record your nomination. Our reception desk or your GP can do this for you as well. You do not need your own computer.

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

If you decide you would prefer a paper prescription, all you need to do is ask your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination, ask any participating pharmacy, online pharmacy service or dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one), to record or cancel your nomination. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in pharmacies and NHS prescription payment agencies that see your paper prescription now.

Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser. Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
