The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is changing
EPS is a free and easy secure service, which sends your prescription electronically from your doctor’s surgery to your chosen pharmacy. EPS is replacing the need for most paper prescriptions, working towards a paper free NHS.
Patients without a nominated pharmacy will automatically receive electronic prescriptions – a prescription token will be issued to you to take to any pharmacy.
More than 28 million patients already have a nomination. Their nomination will remain valid and nothing will change.
The practice can track where and when your prescription was dispensed
By using EPS, patients benefit from:
collecting repeat prescriptions directly from their pharmacy without having to visit the GP
paper prescriptions not getting lost
less time spent waiting in pharmacies and GP practices
a reliable, secure and confidential service
Patients can find out more by going to www.nhs.uk/EPS
Right Person First
This note is to inform you of some changes at the practice.
Dr Hannah Hughes is reducing the number of days that she currently works and so is unable to maintain the patient list of a full time doctor.
We have two new doctors that have joined the practice, Dr Mohammed Rahman and Dr Dawn Harrington.
Therefore, to enable the practice to have a fair distribution of workload between all the partners we are transferring the registration of some patients to the other partners in the practice, this has been randomly selected.
This will not affect the opportunity to make an appointment with a Doctor of your choice as we are a group practice, but you may have to book ahead if you have a particular preference.
If you have any objection to this change, please put your comments in writing to Claire Critoph, Practice Manager and the partners will discuss your concern.
The practice now offers SKYPE Consultations
STATION PLAZA HEALTH CENTRE IS NOW OPEN.
The NHS Friends & Family Test
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an important opportunity for you to provide feedback on the care and treatment you receive and to help us to improve services. Your answer is voluntary, but if you do answer, your feedback will provide valuable information to celebrate good practice, and identify opportunities to make improvements. If you would like to participate in the NHS Friends and Family Test, please complete the simple questionnaire available in the practice and post it into the Friends and Family Test collection box in the reception area.
