URGENT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING INFORMATION

To reduce the risks of spreading Coronavirus for patients and staff we will NOT accept paper prescription requests until further notice.  We do not want patients entering the practice exposing themselves or our staff to risk of infection. You should request your prescription in one of the following ways:-


*NHS App - available in the App Store (Apple or Android). It’s easy to use and you can order your prescriptions quickly and easily. You can even see when they've been approved by a GP.


*Go to PatientAccess.com - we can send you a link to get started in creating an account if you do not already have one.


*You can email us at prescriptions.mrmc@nhs.net


You need to decide where we should send your prescription electronically. It can be to any pharmacy. You will not be able to collect your prescription from the Reception desk - please let us know your pharmacy preference. 


We no longer accept requests or produce paper prescriptions.


In some circumstances during this pandemic we will accept telephone requests for those unable to use the alternatives above, but you will still need to have a nominated pharmacy.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
