In recognition of the challenging financial situation that the NHS is facing, the Government has implemented a series of sweeping changes throughout the NHS with a view to making the service more efficient and cost effective.
In St Helens at least £1.5 million worth of medicines each year are returned to chemists unused. These medicines cannot be re-used and are destroyed. In an effort to reduce waste St Helens Clinical Commissioning Group have decided to stop pharmacies, and other 3rd party suppliers from ordering medication for patients.
The easiest way to order your repeat medicines in to sign up for Patient Access which provides secure access to the practice clinical system using a PC, tablet or smart phone. Patient Access allows you to not only order your repeat medicines but you can also book and cancel appointments, access your test results and view your medical record. It’s very simple to sign up - just enquire at reception with a form of ID (eg., driving licence, passport, etc.,) and proof of address (eg., utility bill, council tax notice, etc.,) and we will do the rest.
You may find some of your regular medication is switched to a different product which will have exactly the same effect but will cost the NHS less. We will give you information about any changes. If you have any concerns please discuss with your GP, Practice Nurse or Pharmacist.
