HOW DO I....
OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?

We are computerised for repeat prescriptions, which helps both the patients and ourselves.

PLEASE NOTE: WE REQUIRE A MINIMUM OF 48 HOURS NOTICE WHEN REQUESTING THEM.

They can be requested by ticking off the appropriate medication in the box on the counterfoil part of your prescription and either posting it to the surgery or placing your request in the box in our waiting room.

We have an Email address specifically for repeat prescription requests - NLCCG.PrescriptionsCedarMedical@nhs.net

You can also obtain repeat prescriptions online by clicking on the following link:- https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com

All you need to do to initiate using the online service is to call into the surgery bringing with you photographic proof of ID (i.e. passport) and speak to a member of staff who will issue you your online user name and password. Then you can start using the SystmOnline service!

You can also contact your local chemist and make arrangements for them to collect, dispense and in some cases deliver the medication to you.

HOW DO I....
OBTAIN SICKNESS CERTIFICATES?

A sickness certificate completed and signed by your doctor is ONLY required when a period of consistent absence from work due to illness is longer than seven days' duration.
Absence from work due to illness of up to seven working days will be covered adequately by a “self certification” form ( SC2 ) available from your employer. Self-employed patients should obtain form SC1 from their local Job Centre Plus office or by telephoning 0800 055 6688.
