Managing Prescriptions with SystmOnline

Click the Current Prescriptions link on the Home Page, or the Current Prescriptions button on the main menu bar. 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. To request a repeat prescription:

  1. Select the drug by ticking the box in the left-hand column.  If the item you require is not listed or if you need to include further information with your request, type the details into the Medication Request Notes field. When providing this information, you should bear in mind that it may be visible to all practice staff.
  2. Click Request Medication. The Medication Order Summary is 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 in 2 working days.
  3. Click Return to Current Medication to return to the Current Prescriptions page where the status of the drug will show that it has been requested.
