The surgery will continue to operate under COVID-19 guidelines and so it is becoming increasing important to try and get our patients to collect medication direct from their pharmacist rather than coming to the surgery to pick up a script.
Most prescriptions are now signed, sent and processed electronically. Please see the NHS guidelines on electronic prescriptions. The aim is to reduce the need for almost all paper prescriptions in the near future.
West Street Surgery has nearly a 1000 patients that are on repeat prescriptions that still have to pick up their prescription from the surgery. Lets try and make it easier. You can nominate a pharmacy anywhere; close to home, school and work. The choice is yours. You can search for local pharmacies by postcode on our website at:
Once you decide which is the best pharmacy for you we ask you to complete the online register for electronic prescribing form which can be found at:
We will then update the system. If you wish to change at anytime just compete the form and we will be able to update details.
Your help is much appreciated.
