Electronic Prescribing

 We now use The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) to produce your prescription. This is an NHS service and gives you the chance to change how we send your prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice.

What it means for you:

  • You will no longer need to collect your paper prescription from reception, instead we can send it electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
  • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy, as they will receive your prescription automacially from us, so they can have your medication or appliances ready before you arrive.

How to get your prescriptions electronically:

If you do not already have your prescriptions automactically sent by us, to a pharmacy of your choice, simpy let reception know which pharmacy you would like your prescriptions sent to. You will still receive a request slip to order any future medication or you can use our 'on line' ordering service.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Following the recent changes in the GP contract practices are under a lawful obligation under the Health and Social Care Act to provide patient data to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) (ie where national research is being undertaken). We are also obliged under the Data Protection Act to protect your data.  It is important you are aware of these changes in the law.  We have not provided blanket approval for extract of patient data from our clinical systems and consider each request on its merit.  The information provided  may be used in research to improve future health or to improve the functioning of the health service.

  • 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.
  • More information can be found here: www.nhs.uk/caredata
