The way we handle electronic prescriptions for some of our patients is changing from 27th March 2017. Click here for more information and to find out whether these changes will affect you.

 

 

 

Most items on prescription can be sent to your chosen pharmacy electronically. If you are not yet signed up for electronic transmission of prescriptions and would like to sign up, please ask at your community pharmacy or at reception.

If you are already signed up for electronic transmission of prescriptions, please note that the way we handle electronic prescriptions for some of our patients is changing.

Prescriptions for certain items can’t be sent electronically: controlled drugs like morphine and tramadol are some common examples, but there are others.

Up to now, if you have been prescribed something that cannot be sent electronically, we have produced a paper prescription for all your medicines, not just those that cannot be sent electronically.

We will be changing this from 27th March 2017.

After this date, everything that can be sent electronically, will be sent electronically. Paper prescriptions will only be produced for the specific items that cannot be sent electronically.

We are keen to increase our use of electronic prescribing because we think it is more efficient for all concerned. This change in practice will help us achieve this goal.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Please ask at reception if you have any questions about this.
