Changes to repeat Prescriptions Ordering from September 2017
From September 2017 we will only accept requests for repeat prescriptions from you, your care or a family member. If your medicine is currently ordered for you by the pharmacy you will now need to order it directly from your GP practice. If your pharmacy picks up your prescription from the practice or delivers your prescription to your home or if your prescription goes electronically to your chosen pharmacist this will continue to happen. This change will affect all Runcorn and Widnes Practices. You can order your repeat prescription by dropping off or posting the tick slip (right hand side of your repeat prescription) Ticking only the medication you need. If you don't have your slip please put your request in writing listing the medications you require. Order online - if you are not already registered for Patient Access we, at the practice can help you set this up. We have a drop in day on 23 August between 10-3. You will need to bring 2 forms of ID. Patient Access Mobile App - a free mobile app and can be used to order your medications. If you have been identified as having at least one medicine that is a repeat prescription you will receive a letter in July 2017. The letter will explain why this is happening, the ways that you can order your prescription and who to contact if you need any further support or information. There are a number of patients who will exempt, patients on blister packs, palliative care patients and vulnerable patients or patients with exceptional circumstances. When patients order their own prescriptions this is safer and reduces waste. medicines waste is estimated to cost the NHS hundreds of millions of pounds every year. This money can be used to fund other vital services in Halton
