Patient Notice - Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering

The NHS in Liverpool is making a change to how repeat prescriptions can be ordered.

From Summer 2018 patients in Liverpool will no longer be able to use a third party, such as a high street or internet pharmacy to order repeat prescriptions on their behalf.

Instead patients will need to order repeat prescriptions direct from their GP themselves - either in person at their practice, via GP online services. or by post.

A letter and information leaflet explaining this change in more detail is being sent to all pateints who may be affected by this change.

if you have any questions or concerns about this change, please speak to a member of out practice staff for further help and advice.

One Problem Per Consultation

Each appointment is only 10 minutes long.  Ten minutes really is not a lot of time, even for just one problem, e.g., 1 minute to get to doctor’s room and sit down, 3 minutes to tell a history, 3-4 minutes to perform targeted examination, 2 minutes to explain, advise and treat.  There is no time left of the ten minutes to write up notes, fill out forms, dictate referrals or speak to other team members for advice.

Presenting the clinician with multiple problems means that there is a real increased risk that mistakes will be made and things to be missed as the clinician may be inclined to rush, particularly if other patients are waiting.

We do consider that GP appointments are a limited resource and we would kindly ask that such a service be used with care and consideration.

Therefore please do not be offended if the doctor asks you to rebook for your other problems. We are working in your best interests in order to keep you safe.

We would always encourage patients to book double appointments if there are multiple problems that need discussing.

  • If you use the pharmacy  collection service it is up to the individual to make sure that the pharmacy has collected it from surgery
