It has come to our notice that some of you have received a leaflet through your door entitled prescriptions are changing, the leaflet leads you to believe that the practice is working with the pharmacy indicated on the leaflet. We would like to assure all our patients that this is not the case, the practice continues to remain impartial to any chemist and would like to confirm that which ever one you choose to nominate as your pharmacy for the electronic prescription service is entirely up to you. The practice was not consulted about having its name on the leaflet and it appears there is nothing we can do about this.
We would also like to assure you that if you do not wish to use electronic prescribing then you do not have to. If you prefer to be handed a paper prescription and take it to the chemist yourself then please just carry on doing this as you always have done.
