Telephone Prescription Requests

No Longer Accepted

 

In the interests of patient safety and better telephone access to the surgery for appointments, from 1 May 2018, the Practice can no longer accept prescription requests by phone. The partners have decided the risk of errors are too great and the time often taken to deal with these requests causes too long a delay for patients trying to book an appointment.

 

Alternative methods to request repeat prescriptions are:-

 

  • Request repeat prescriptions online, via the Practice website – please register for online access via Reception.
  • Request repeat prescriptions by post / in person – use the right-hand side of your printed prescription, ticking the medication you require. Post it to the practice or drop it in at reception (include a stamped addressed envelope and we’ll post it out to you).
  • Get your nominated Pharmacy to request and collect your prescription for you – speak to your preferred pharmacist for information on the scheme.

 

 

Please note: Prescriptions are ready for collection from the surgery in 72 hours (3 working days).

Summary Care Record

summary care recordThere is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). The Summary Care Record is meant to help emergency doctors and nurses help you when you contact them when the surgery is closed. Initially, it will contain just your medications and allergies.

Later on as the central NHS computer system develops, (known as the ‘Summary Care Record’ – SCR), other staff who work in the NHS will be able to access it along with information from hospitals, out of hours services, and specialists letters that may be added as well.

Your information will be extracted from practices such as ours and held on central NHS databases.   

As with all new systems there are pros and cons to think about. When you speak to an emergency doctor you might overlook something that is important and if they have access to your medical record it might avoid mistakes or problems, although even then, you should be asked to give your consent each time a member of NHS Staff wishes to access your record, unless you are medically unable to do so.

On the other hand, you may have strong views about sharing your personal information and wish to keep your information at the level of this practice.

This surgery uploaded summary care records to the NHS Spine in Autumn 2014.

It is assumed that you want your record uploaded to the Central NHS Computer System unless you actively opt out.

If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery.
