How you order your prescription is changing
NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has asked us to change how repeat prescriptions can be ordered, in line with the rest of Lancashire and the wider UK.
From 7th October 2019 a pharmacy will not be able to order repeat prescriptions on your behalf. You or your carer must order the medicines you need using any of the following methods
You or your carer must order the medicines you need using any of the following methods: MyGP app – if you have a smart phone or iPad (download from your usual app store) speak to reception to get your online access authorised. Drop off or post the re-order slip, selecting only the items you need. If you don’t have your slip from your last prescription, you can use one of our request forms or simply write a list
If you have nominated a pharmacy, we can send prescriptions directly to them by the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), which is the quickest and safest way. To make a nomination, let us know which pharmacy (including branch) you wish to use. Your pharmacy will continue to deliver your medicines to you if you have this arrangement with them.
If you feel you might need support ordering your repeat prescription or you are a carer for someone who might need help, please ask to speak to the reception team or practice pharmacist.
If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact the Medicines Optimisation Team at NHS Blackpool CCG on 01253 955480.
We welcome new patients
We aim to treat all our patients courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important you know who you are speaking to, so our Practice staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.
