SystmOne is the clinical system that we use at the surgery which enables you to order prescriptions in a much easier way. Each patient will be given a username and password to access this system. Please contact the Surgery for more information.

Before you can use this service you will need to come into the surgery with photographic ID (e.g. passport) to obtain your username and password.

Please use the following link to get to the login page:


 Notes for SystmOnline Users

Type your username and password exactly as detailed on the printed page given to you by the surgery. If you need to get your password reset contact the surgery, allow at least an hour for it to take effect.

Remember to change your password as soon as you log into the system, as the original one will expire two weeks after the date of issue.

If you are unable to order your prescription, it may be that your medication needs to be reviewed by your doctor. Please contact the surgery if this happens.


Online Access to your Medical Records. 

From the 1st April 2015 you will be able to access and print summary information from your medical record. This is currently limited to medications, allergies and adverse reactions.

If you would like this access you need to complete the registration form (SystmOnline Registration Form), and take this to the surgery along with your ID. Once checked by a member of staff the registration form will be scanned onto your records and access will be given.

Once a child reaches the age of 13, any parental access will automatically be stopped.
