- Important Information -
We no longer accept repeat prescriptions ordered on your behalf by pharmacies. If you use this method and you do not think you will be able to take advantage of the Prescription Order Line, please look below for different ways of getting your prescription.
Ways of ordering your repeat prescriptions:
Ring the Prescription Order Line on 0114 372 3000 between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday
Carterknowle and Dore Medical Practice is pleased to offer you a new telephone service to order your repeat prescriptions. Trained NHS healthcare staff will take your phone call and make sure you receive medications that are suitable for you as well as the correct quantity of medication.
This means you will have greater control about getting the medicines you really need at the right time. Please see the leaslet below for more information:
Via our SystmOne website
Once logged on you can view you current repeats and send us an order over the internet.
If you would like to use this service you will need to have a SystmOnline account. To set one up please come to the practice with proof of identification, eg. driving licence or utility bill. A user name and password will be generated for you. Once logged in, we suggest that you change the password to something you can easily remember!
Available both at Carterknowle & Dore
You can come down to both our surgeries and physically hand in either the prescription counterfoil, or one of our repeat prescription request slips. These can be placed in the designated Repeat Prescription Request boxes found in both receptions.
Via Post or Fax

If it will assist you, the local chemists (Co-operative Pharmacy at Dore and Moss Chemists on Abbeydale Road) will collect your prescriptions from the surgery so that you can obtain your medication directly from them.
All patients on repeat medication are required to have regular reviews and failure to attend for these may result in your medication being unavailable unless you see a doctor. If a hospital changes your medication, you must inform us so that we can amend our records. New patients need to see a doctor before their first repeat prescription can be given.
Issuing of repeat prescriptions by the surgery team or through your pharmacy may require the Sheffield NHS Prescription Order Line staff to look at your medication record.
