Coronavirus Vaccine - Update -The Coronavirus vaccine has now been approved for use and the NHS will be starting to offer this to priority groups. We will share further information with you as it becomes available. In the meantime, we ask that you please do not contact the surgery to seek a vaccine, we will contact you when it’s the right time for you to have yours. Please act on your invite when it comes and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them. Please note your vaccination appointment will be at The Ridge Medical Practice, Cousen Road, Bradford, BD7 3JX
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE TELEPHONE
Please allow 2 working days for your prescriptions to be processed and signed before collection. Please ensure that you request your prescription a few days before you run out of your medication.
Some chemists will arrange to collect your prescription from the surgery so that you can go directly to the chemists to collect your medication. If you would like to take advantage of this service please ask at reception. We can now arrange for your prescription go electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. Please discuss with either your pharmacy or a member of our reception team to arrange.
As part of changes across Bradford, GP's can no longer accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacists unless there are exceptional circumstances or your medication is in a dossett box.
If you order your own medication this change will not affect you.
The easiest way to order prescriptions is to tick the items you require on your repeat medicines list and return it to the surgery.
Alternatively, you can register and request repeat prescriptions on line. Please as reception staff for further details.
Requests can be made by either handing them in at the Surgery, posting, requesting on line.
NOTE: WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE PHONE.
ALSO WE ARE UNABLE TO ACTION ANY REQUESTS OR COMMENTS TO ALTER YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION VIA ONLINE REQUEST SERVICE.
If your repeat medication requires amending please contact the surgery to speak to a member of staff.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland,, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

To use the SystmOnline service, you will need to go to your registered GP practice to request a SystmOnline username and password. You cannot register for this service online because the practice needs to verify your identity. Consider calling the practice in advance to find out what kind of identification you will need to take with you, e.g. a driving licence.
Once you have registered at your GP practice, they will give you a SystmOnline username and password. If they hold an email address for you that has been verified as being correct (this means the practice has sent an email to you in the past and you have replied to it), they will also send you a confirmation email containing your SystmOnline username and the SystmOnline website address.
Wait an hour before trying to log in to the website. Your GP practice may have set up a link from its own practice website, which you can follow to access the Login page. Otherwise, your practice will have given you the web address you need to type into your web browser.
Type in your username and password and click Login.
If you have been granted access to other SystmOnline accounts, you will see a list of usernames you can choose to log in as. Click Login As This Person to choose the account you want to use. This might happen if you have a relative who is not confident using a computer and has granted access to you so that you can use SystmOnline on their behalf. Click here for instructions on how to give another person access to your SystmOnline account.
You will then see the SystmOnline Home page, which shows your details and your GP practice's contact details at the top.
Note: The services available here will depend on the services your GP practice has decided to offer; therefore, not all of those listed in this guide may be available to you.
You can navigate to all the online services from the Home page. To return to it, click Home in the blue menu bar or click the Back button on any page.
You will initially be given a random password and when you log on for the first time, you will be prompted to change it to something more memorable. Passwords must be eight or more characters long and must contain at least one number and one non-alphanumeric character, e.g. '!' or '?'.
If you need to change your password at any other time:
If you forget your password, you can reset it yourself, provided your practice has an email address for you that has been verified as being correct (this means the practice has sent an email to you in the past and you have replied to it).
To reset a forgotten password yourself:
If you do not have an email address that has been checked, you will need to visit your practice in person and ask for your password to be reset. When you log in with the replacement password, you will be prompted to change it to a password of your own choice.
To log out:
Note: The website will automatically log out after a period of inactivity. Type in your username and password to log in again.
