Repeat Prescriptions: Telephone Requests
With effect from Monday 4th January 2016 the Practice will cease to take repeat prescription requests over the telephone. Although we appreciate that this is a convenient way to order, there are are concerns with regards to clinical safety and the need to ensure that orders are correct. In order to provide a clinically safe prescription service, we feel it is appropriate to ask for all repeat medication requests to be made by other methods.:
- via this website using the prescriptions tab
- at a pharmacy of your choice (you must sign up with the pharmacy for this service)
- by email - firstname.lastname@example.org
- repeat prescription post box - in surgery reception
- royal mail
- by fax - 0844 477 3419

NHS 111 Service
NHS 111 Is a new service that has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help and advice fast, but it's not a life threatening situation. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time. The service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Call 111 if:
- you need medical help fast but it's not a 999 emergency
- you think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service
- you don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call
- you need health information or reassurance about what to do next
How Information About You Helps Us To Provide Better Care
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone. This information along with your postcode and NHS number but not your name, are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information.This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information about you helps us to provide better care”.
