There are various different methods of ordering your prescriptions.
This can be done online using the SystmOnline or Rotherham Health App, using the prescription boxes located at the practice or by handing your prescription to a member of our reception team. Regardless of which method you use to request repeat medications we ask that you collect your prescription AFTER 4PM TWO working days after you put in your request.
St Ann's is now able to offer patients the option of ordering repeat medications online. For more information or to get your registration details please ask at reception.
As soon as you have your registration details please click on the link at the top of this page to be taken to the Login page.
Patients on long term medication can order repeat prescriptions using the rear off slip attached to their last prescription. Simply tick the items required and forward it to the surgery.
Patients are now able to have their prescriptions sent directly to the pharmacy of their choice. To use this service please inform the pharmacy you wish to use and they will record your nomination and forward it to the practice.
Please note, this service is not for everyone. If you are on "Controlled Drugs" or your medication changes frequently, this service will not be appropriate for your needs. If in doubt please discuss it with your local pharmacy.

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Is now safer & more efficient!
Under the previous system, many patients had reported that they had built up a large stock of unused medicine that they did not request. This could not be stored safely and used within date. The change to how patients/carers now order medication has addressed this serious safety concern.
By ordering medications this way also means that your GP practice will have a clearer picture of the medicines you do and do not use. This will help with your discussions during your medication review.
Finally, it is important that NHS money is used as efficiently as possible. Medicines waste costs the NHS in Rotherham £1.5 million every year! This change will reduce medicines waste, allowing monies to fund other services to improve the health of the people of Rotherham.

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.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
