ORDERING A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?
Our existing on line prescription request service has now been upgraded and all patients wanting to request their repeat medication will need to register for on line services. A personal log in and password will be issued once registration is complete (Upon log in you will be directed to your own personal repeat medication list). This update will take effect from 20th February 2014.
Registration forms and further information available from reception.
A modern information system has been developed, which will make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving health services. The system is being delivered by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and NHS England on behalf of the NHS.
It is important that the NHS can use this information to get a complete picture of what is happening across health and social care and to plan services according to what works best. The new system will provide joined-up information about the care received from all of the different parts of the health service, including hospitals and GP practices.
Do I have a Choice? Yes - you have a right to prevent confidential information about you from being shared or used for any purpose other than providing your care, except in special circumstances. If you do not want information that identifies you to be shared outside your GP practice, ask your practice to make a note of this in your medical record.
Further information can be found by visiting www.nhs.uk/caredata.
