Sunlight Group Practice will start to use the Electronic Prescription Service on 14th January 2015
The Electronic Prescription Service allows your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
To sign up, you need to speak to your preferred pharmacy and complete a form to confirm that they can receive your prescription directly.
Once you have signed up, your chosen pharmacy will receive your prescription electronically and you will not have to pick up your paper prescription from us.
If you have already nominated a pharmacy, from 14th January 2015, your prescription will be sent to them electronically unless you tell us otherwise. If you need to obtain a paper prescription for any reason, just let us know at the time of ordering.
This service is optional and you can continue to collect paper prescriptions as you do now if you prefer. For more information, please speak to a member of staff or your pharmacist.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
From time to time your medication may change:-
Your doctor will only do this if the new medication is as good as or better at treating your condition.
Making such changes helps to ensure that every penny spent on your local NHS is spent wisely.
This practice participates in the Wirral Prescribing Incentive Scheme. This scheme aims to increase the quality and cost effectiveness of prescribing
If you have any queries about these changes to your medication please speak to a member of staff at the practice or if you prefer your local pharmacist.
