Latest news

CQC Inspection - Overall Outstanding

Royal Crescent and Preston Road Practice is delighted with the rating of “Outstanding” awarded by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). 

We believe that personal care is at the heart of family general practice.  Our patients tell us that the continuity of care and a relationship with their own GP is really important; the practice was above average for its satisfaction scores on consultations with GPs and Nurses and we are very proud of this achievement.

CQC received consistently positive feedback from patients. We welcome all comments from our patients and use these to develop the service we provide. Our thanks go to the members of the Patient Participation Group who work closely with us on this.

The CQC highlights the following work as Outstanding – development of services for the homeless and vulnerable, the visiting team of practitioners who proactively manage the over-75 population within care homes and the patients’ own homes and the Community Angels who provide befriending, transport and support to patients.

CQC recognised that our staff are motivated and inspired to offer kind and compassionate care. We wish to thank all these highly skilled, motivated, committed and caring staff - clinical, managerial and administrative, who work so hard on a daily basis to provide the highest standards of care to our patients, and are thrilled this has been recognised by a national organisation.

A new way to get your medicines and appliances from September

EPS logo

 The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

 What does this mean for you?

  • If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
  • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

 Is this service right for you?

Yes, if you have a stable condition and you:

  • don’t want to go to your GP practice every time to collect your repeat prescription.
  • collect your medicines from the same place most of the time or use a prescription collection service now.

 It may not be if you:

  • don’t get prescriptions very often.
  • pick up your medicines from different places.

 How can you use EPS?

You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called nomination. You can choose:

  • a pharmacy.
  • a dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one).
  • your dispensing GP practice (if you are eligible).

 Ask any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.

 Can I change my nomination or cancel it and get a paper prescription?

Yes you can. If you don’t want your prescription to be sent electronically tell your GP. If you want to change or cancel your nomination speak to any pharmacist or dispensing appliance contractor that offers EPS, or your GP practice. Tell them before your next prescription is due or your prescription may be sent to the wrong place.

 Is EPS reliable, secure and confidential?

Yes. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now.

Sometimes dispensers may see that you have nominated another dispenser. For example, if you forget who you have nominated and ask them to check or, if you have nominated more than one dispenser.

 For more information visit, your pharmacy or GP practice.
