IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PATIENTS!
From the 21st November 2017 Giffords Surgery will be asking all patients to order their medication either through Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) or SystmOne Online.
Patients will no longer be able to make medication requests via post, phone or in person at the surgery.
Instead you can now order repeat medication from the comfort of your own home by calling POD on 0300 123 6242 Monday – Friday 0900 - 1700, please order your repeat prescriptions at least 7 days before you need them.
It will then take time for the pharmacy to prepare your medication and this may vary depending on the pharmacy you use – you will need to ask them for the details.
For more information Click Here or download this document: POD Information Letter For Patients
Alternatively you can register for online access and once registered you will be provided with a Username and Password which will enable you to order your repeat medication online by visiting: https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com. Please be aware the online service requires prior registration.

Patients who fall into any of the below categories are EXEMPT from using POD and Systmonline can continue to send prescription requests to the surgery or nominated pharmacy;
- Patients who receive post-dated prescriptions
- Patients who have their medication in a Dosette Box
- Patients who reside in a nursing home
- Patients who are deaf or hard of hearing
