Why are we reverting back to written prescription requests?
The Practice felt that during the pandemic patients would benefit from being able to request prescriptions via the Telephone rather than having to attend the Practice in person. The Practice will be reverting to written requests as access to various NHS apps has become mush easier. Patients are now able to choose between a variety of Apps. Some apps such as MyGP also have the functionality of Prescription reminders to aid patients in remembering to request their prescriptions.
Written requests also reduce the risk in errors for patients medication either through mispronunciation, discrepancies in dosages etc.
Should you wish to be set up on an NHS app, please contact reception who will be able to walk you through the process.
