Patient Notice - Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering

 

The NHS in Liverpool is making a change to how repeat prescriptions can be ordered.

 

From summer 2018 patients in Liverpool will no longer be able to use a third party, such as a high street or internet pharmacy to order repeat prescriptions on their behalf.

Instead patients  will need to order repeat prescriptions direct from their GP themselves – either in person at their practice, via GP online services, or by post.

 

A letter and information leaflet explaining this change in more detail is being sent to all patients who may be affected by this change. This information is also available in a range of other languages and formats here.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please speak to a member of our practice staff for further help and advice.

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care..

It is important that we at the NHS can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
