Repeat prescriptions

Online services

We now offer the ability to request repeat prescriptions online using our online service Patient Access. With Patient Access, you can now order your repeat prescription at home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. What's more, because Patient Access is a 24 hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night.

All information that is sent to your surgery via Patient Access is secure. Your personal details are encrypted and protected using the highest standard internet security, so it cannot be intercepted. Only you and your GP surgery are able to see this information.  

How do I register?

Collect a Patient Access registration form in person from the practice and follow the instructions contained within the letter. Once registered please click below to access the service.

Telephone Prescription Order Line

We have a repeat prescription telephone order line which can be reached by telephoning 0141 800 7025. All repeat prescriptions will be sent to your nominated pharmacy and you will no longer come to the practice to collect your prescription. It is important therefore that you nominate a chemist. This telephone line is for ordering repeat medication only and should not be used for general medication enquiries

Although we will process your prescription request within 48 hours of receipt, please allow 3 - 4 days excluding weekends and Public Holidays before you attend the Chemist to collect your medication. If you are unable to collect your prescription your chemist may be prepared to deliver it to you. If you receive repeat prescriptions and have not been seen by a doctor for some time, you may be asked to make an appointment to attend for a review. The practice is not a dispensing practice.

Need to order repeat medication sooner

Please inform us at the time of ordering reason for early ordering. If you are able to give a valid reason eg you will be going away on holiday, we should be able to accommodate your request. If we are not aware of the special circumstances this request will more than likely be refused

Registering patients

Patients wishing to register with our practice may either approach our receptionists who will guide them through the process of registration or telephone the surgery after 10.30 am. You will be given registration forms and new patient questionnaires to be completed for each patient registering or you can download these.  When registering, please bring two independent documents, one such as a passport or driving license to confirm physical identity and date of birth and one such as a utility bill to confirm address. This is required for each individual registering.

Supply of medicines – if you are on repeat medication please hand in your order form from your previous practice.

To download forms please click the link below to launch a copy of the application form that you can complete, print and take into the GP Practice.

In order that your GP can do all they can to help, it is important that he is aware of your Next of Kin status. It would be helpful, therefore, if you could inform the practice of this information.

Please let us know as soon as possible if your address changes or your telephone number changes as you may miss important information about your health care from either the practice or other NHS organisations.

Making an appointment


All consultations with doctors, nurses and Health Care Assistant - including all Clinics, are made by appointment by telephoning the practice. The doctors work in partnership

GPs will now be triaging all patient concerns, whether new or ongoing.  Be reassured that if the doctor feels that you need to be seen, you will still be seen at the surgery, but the majority of patients will be dealt with by telephone consultation or through a video consultation. Video Consultations are new to Gleniffer Medical Group but are already proving a success.

Video Consultations are new to Gleniffer Medical Group but are already proving a success.

Our receptionists will be asking you more questions than normal prior to putting you on the list for a call from a GP or Practice Nurse. As well as the reason for the appointment you will be asked if you have a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Please be patient with them. They have to ask the questions of every patient and it does take a little longer than normal.

We will be asking all patients to stay away from the surgery unless they have a pre-booked appointment. Appointments for our nurses and Health Care Assistants will be screened first by telephone before allocating an appointment.

Making An Urgent Appointment

If you have a genuinely urgent problem phone the practice at 8.30am where possible.

Telephone Consultations

A number of telephone consultation slots are available each day for patients to speak with GPs (e.g. to discuss results, medications, problems or advice).

The doctor will usually call you back as near to your appointment time as possible. However, sometimes, the doctor is held up in surgery and may not be able to call you until later. If you are in any doubt, please call back and ask the Receptionist for further details

If you are out when the doctor calls you he/she may leave a message but usually they will not and you will lose your appointment slot

If you have the ‘Anonymous Call Barring’ facility active on your phone, please ensure you turn it off that day – otherwise the doctor will NOT be able to get through to you.

Flu notice

As you will appreciate delivering the flu programme this year will be more challenging than ever before because of the impact of Covid 19. Capacity is substantially constrained by the need to maintain good Infection Prevention & Control measures and appropriate Physical Distancing measures. A whole system collaborative effort is required this year to deliver the flu vaccination.

This year the practice will ONLY be vaccinating patients in the 18 – 64 At Risk Group

  • Chronic respiratory disease
  • Chronic heart disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Chronic neurological disease
  • Diabetes
  • Immunosuppression
  • Asplenia or dysfunction of the spleen
  • Morbid Obesity
  • Unpaid Carers

Important notice to patients

Vaccination will be by appointment only

DO NOT attend if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or displaying symptoms of the infection.

Patients should attend on their own. However, if thought essential, a dedicated person can attend with a patient.

DO NOT arrive more than 5 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to allow us to adhere to social distancing rules.

  • Those aged 50 – 54 years not otherwise eligible due to other risk factors: - Still to be confirmed, Health Board will review in line with uptake rates and vaccine supply as the programme progresses.
