Accessing Medication Requests

- You can change which pharmacy your electronic prescriptions will be sent to by clicking on ‘Change Pharmacy’ option.
After clicking ‘Request Medication’ on the home page screen, the following medication screen displays all of your recent medication (acute) and regular medication (repeat).
All current repeat prescriptions are listed with the drug, dosage, quantity, last issued date and status. An empty tick box in the left-hand column means you can ask for a new prescription for that drug. Put a tick in the required box and click continue.
You can request a medication which we have not issued you before by selecting ‘Make custom request’. Please state clearly on the request why you are asking for it and click continue button.
Please be aware you cannot tick boxes while also trying to use the custom requests section. You can only use one of these features at a time.
If you wish to add notes about the repeat prescription you have selected, you can do so in the notes field after clicking Continue on the previous screen. You can then complete your request by clicking Request Medication.
The Medication Order Summary will then be displayed, stating that a request has been sent to the practice to re-prescribe the item(s), and that the prescription will be ready for collection from your nominated pharmacy in two working days. Click Return to Current Medication to return to the Medication page where the status of the drug will show that it has been requested.
By clicking on ‘Outstanding Prescription Requests’ option from the Medication menu will display any current outstanding medication requests. You can click Amend to change details about the request or cancel it entirely.
By clicking ‘Change Pharmacy’ option on the home page, SystmOnline will automatically list the closest pharmacies to you. As soon as you select the Choose button, this will update your nominated pharmacy. Pressing the Remove button will effectively delete the pharmacy that has been recorded.
Access to your record will be available at your practice, although you will not have access to this feature upon your account creation. You will need to make a separate request to be granted this additional level of access and your practice will need time to prepare your record. Access to this service is not granted instantly and requests will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please also note that practices are entitled to refuse patients access to this feature if deemed necessary. Once you have online access your to your record, you can view your GP consultations, view test results and childhood vaccination.
The online account management menu can be accessed from the Home page. From here, you can manage elements of your online account by clicking on the appropriate hyperlink.

Access to the child’s record will need to be reinstated by completing a consent to Proxy Access to GP Online Services form (Children between 13-16) which MUST be signed by the child. If you do not have access to your children records, please contact the practice so the practice can grant you access to your children records.
