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.

Mentor Practices

The Liverpool-based GP practices which are part of Primary Care Connect are also known as ‘mentor practices’.

These practices are:

  • Edge Hill Health Centre (mentor for Speke and Garston practices)
  • Valley Medical Centre (mentor for Netherley Practice)
  • Anfield Group Practice (mentor for Anfield Health)
  • Green Lane Medical Centre (mentor for Park View Practice)
  • Great Homer Street Medical Centre (mentor for Everton Road Practice)

These practices will be working alongside our six new practices will be managed by Primary Care Connect and will be responsible for the following:

  • Clinical Leadership, including mentoring GPs, supervision and teaching & assessing
  • Provide a seconded Senior GP when required to ensure robust clinical governance
  • Management of long term complex patients
  • Supporting with recruitment and performance management
  • Managing the practices’ devolved budgets
  • Supporting the recruitment of Primary Care Connect GPs
  • Ensuring all Primary Care Connect Policies and procedures are followed
  • Ensuring the practices are addressing local needs and priorities

Whilst the Primary Care Connect structure might appear to be ‘different’, we believe that the strength of partnership will enable us to make a real difference to patients within Liverpool.
