Flu Clinic - 11 and 12 October
Appointments are available for you to book online or via phone or in person. We have ordered flu vaccine for all eligible patients. We would ask that you book for your flu vaccine with the Surgery please.
The local Well pharmacy is changing the way they deal with prescriptions. Please allow at least one week for your prescription to be processed by them.
We are asking that all our patients are registered for online access by 1st April 2019. Please contact the Surgery for your log in and password details. You will be able to book appointments online, request repeat prescriptions, view test results and also view your medical record
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) - All patients will need a nominated pharmacy by 1 April 2019
The majority of our patients do not collect their prescriptions from the Practice, but from a nominated pharmacy through Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
If you require regular prescriptions, EPS will save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP Practice. The EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. This means you will no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP Practice - instead you can go straight to the nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines. Because your pharmacist has already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare your items in advance, so you just have to pick it up with no extra wait. In the future, EPS will become the default option for the prescribing, dispensing and reimbursement of prescriptions in primary care in England.
You don't need a computer to use EPS - you can use it as long as both your GP Practice and the pharmacy offers the service. Skelmanthorpe Family Doctors offers this service. You can choose the most convenient pharmacy for you, such as near your home, where you shop or where you work. This is flexible and can be changed at any time - just let your doctor or pharmacy know. Please ask the practice of pharmacy staff for more details. It only takes a few minutes to set up.
