Appointments at Posterngate Surgery

We understand it can be confusing to work out who you need to book an appointment with for certain problems. We have produced a leaflet for patients to give some idea of who to book in with to make things a bit easier. You can find this leaflet under 'Appointments' at the top of the page, and then in the tab 'Who to book with'.

pillsRepeat Prescriptions

If your doctor has agreed, you may obtain medicines on a repeat prescription without having to see him/her. However, you may be asked to attend a review if your condition needs checking.

You may get a repeat prescription by either bringing in your slip, fully completed with your requirements, to the prescription desk, or post it in the letterbox if we are closed. Alternatively, if you have registered to use SystmOnline you can order a repeat prescription via the link on this page or by e-mailing us at:

You can also register to use the NHS App, you can find out more information and register at

Please note, we require 48 working hours’ notice (2 days excluding weekends) from receipt of a prescription request to be collected by the patient.

Dispensed Medicines

Medicines can be dispensed to patients who attend our branch surgery. We stock those medicines that we normally prescribe, but occasionally we may not have an item in stock. We can often get these within 24 hours but if the need is more immediate, or if you wish, you can be given a prescription, which you can take to a pharmacy of your choice.

Medicines can be obtained during normal branch surgery hours.

We regret that the NHS rules prevent us from dispensing medicines to patients who live outside an area authorised by the local Primary Care Trust.

Medication Reviews

Patients may not be aware that our practice nurses can undertake the majority of medication reviews. Therefore if you are due a medication review, please contact the surgery to book an appointment with one of our nurses. If you need a medication review with a GP, this will be indicated on your prescription when you collect it and a non-urgent appointment can be booked for you.

Electronic Prescriptions

You will need to speak to your pharmacist to set this up. If you have already signed up for this service you will be able to collect your medication 48 hours after ordering without coming into the practice. For Hemingbrough patients who receive your medication directly from the surgery, this will remain unchanged

There are some medications that are not yet compatible with this service, please check with your pharmacy.
