Electronic prescriptions! It is now possible to have many prescriptions sent directly to the pharmacy electronically, if you nominate a pharmacy. Please ask at your local pharmacy or at the surgery for details.
From April 2015 your GP practice will merge with 5 other local practices to become GPS Healthcare, one GP Practice with 6 sites. The service you are used to will still be available but you will be able to access services at any of the sites if it is more convenient. Your registration and patient record will be held by GPS Healthcare, and your original practice will be retained as your ‘Usual’ site. The GPS Healthcare website can be found at www.gpshealthcare.co.uk
