On the 15th May, 2017 the way you order a prescription will change.
Following audits of repeat prescription ordering and in efforts to reduce wastage of medicines, East Lancs Clinical Commissioning Group (EL CCG) are supporting practices to cease accepting third party prescription ordering from local pharmacies. In other areas this new repeat prescribing procedure has resulted in reduced wastage and has also helped to free up practice time. The CCGs Medicines Management Team is currently working with Thursby Surgery to implement the new system which promotes patient empowerment and ownership of repeat medication needs.
The new prescription ordering system will go live on 15th May, 2017. From this date Thursby patients will become personally responsible for ordering their own prescriptions as we will no longer accept repeat prescription requests made by pharmacies on behalf of a patient. Patients may continue to utilise pharmacy collection and delivery services.
A dedicated prescription ordering line 01282 644335 will be open between 12:30pm and 15:00pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively, patients can; order online at https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk or hand in a written request at reception (using the white tear off prescription).
