Prescription Ordering Process

 

The surgery now has more choices available when ordering your repeat prescriptions.

 

You can now use any of the following methods to order your medication.

 

Use a direct prescription ordering process where possible to obtain your medication in the shortest possible time:

 

  • Ring the dedicated Prescription Ordering Centre:  
  •    01453 519219

 

  • Nominate a pharmacy for Electronic Transfer of your prescription.  
  • Please be aware that some medicines, for example controlled drugs, cannot be transferred electronically at the moment and so a paper prescription has to be generated.

Under normal circumstances your prescription will be available within 2 to 3 working days.

 

Check with you local pharmacy how long it takes to get your medication ready after they receive the prescription.

  CQC Inspection Results - February 2016

The Care Quality Commission (CQC), which is an independent regulator of health and adult social care in England, has completed its inspection of the Cam & Uley Family Practice. These inspections are used to make sure that health services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care. 

The Cam & Uley Family Practice report is now available on the http://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-586168808

Electronic Prescriptions Service

The Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

Cam & Uley Family Practice will be enabling the EPS service from the 15th October 2014.

What does this mean for you?




    • If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving time.


    • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.


    • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.



Is this service right for you?

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:




    • don't want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.


    • collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.



It may not be if you:




    • don't get prescriptions very often.


    • pick up your medicines from different places.



How can you use EPS?

You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called a nomination. You can choose:




    • a pharmacy


    • a dispensing appliance contractor (if you have one).


    • Your dispensing GP practice (if you are eligible).



Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don't need a computer to do this.

Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

Yes you can. If you don't want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

Yes, Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now. Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser. Dispensers will also see all the items on your reorder slip if you are on repeat prescriptions.
