Patient Access

The way you are ordering repeat medication has changed. If you have already registered for Patient Access click here to order your medication.

 

 

If you have not yet registered for Patient Access to order your repeat prescription, please do so by clicking here. The old method of requesting prescriptions is no longer available. Once you have registered, you will be asked to present photo ID at the surgery to activate your account.

 

If you have registered successfully and have your log in numbers, please click on the Patient Access box for your next order. Many thanks for your continued co-operation.

 

We are aware that the Patient Access system will not allow patients to request medication which is NOT on their repeat medication list. If you experience this problem, please send your request on an email to:

 

thehallpractice.frontdesk@nhs.net

 

Your request will then be actioned in the usual way.

Changes to the way you order repeat medication:

 

Many patients have a ‘repeat prescription’ meaning that they can regularly receive certain medication without having to see their doctor each time. Some people order these repeat prescriptions themselves. Others choose to use a pharmacy or dispensing company to order medicines on their behalf. Depending on how you request your medicines, the way that it works for you may change from 1 August 2018.

 

You can find further information in a letter below.

 

Buckinghamshire CCG Patient Letter - Ordering Your Prescription Through a Pharmacy

 

Patients may request a repeat prescription by following the Patient Access link on this page to the online form and carrying out the quick, simple, one-time registration process, or by leaving a written prescription request form at the reception desk, or by fax or letter, or email to

 

thehallpractice.frontdesk@nhs.net

 

Telephone requests will not be accepted.

 

A prescription will usually be available within one working day and certainly within two.

Please remember, medications that are taken long term will need monitoring by your GP and Practice Nurse, either by appointment and /or blood test depending on the medication, at least annually, to make sure the medicine is still the best treatment for you.

 


PATIENT NOTICE:

REPEAT RESCRIPTIONS

As of the 10th July 2017, we will be changing the way we issue medications.  All repeat prescriptions will be issued for 2 months in multiples of 28 or 30 tablets.  There are the following exemptions to this rule:

  • The oral contraceptive pill: can be prescribed for 6 months once established (3 months initially) and added as a repeat prescription but annual checks required with a Practice Nurse.
  • New medication (e.g. anti-hypertensive medication): usually 1 month initially.
  • Patients in residential care and nursing homes: 28 days.
  • NSAIDs: usually a maximum of 2 weeks.
  • Anti-histamines for hayfever: usually 1 month.
  • Inhalers: usually a maximum of 2.
  • Controlled drugs: 28 days.

 

The practice policy is that all patients taking medication should receive a medication review at least annually.

Thank you


Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

Electronic Prescription Service is now available at The Hall Practice

EPS enables prescribers - such as GPs and practice nurses - to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.

Please contact your preferred pharmacy if you would like to use the service.

For more information on the new system, go to www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/eps
