 NEWSLETTER

Current NHS guidelines advise us that ordering prescriptions on the telephone can be unsafe and errors can occur. We therefore request patients use alternatives.

We do not take any requests for prescriptions on the phone. You can easily order prescriptions online if you are over 18 years or age. Alternatively please complete the tear off section on the right hand side of your prescription and drop it into the red box in reception. You may also post your request to the surgery. Allow 72 hrs for collection.

At Ilchester Surgery each patient has their own named GP. You can however see any doctor of your choice. Please contact the surgery if you do not know who your named doctor is and our reception staff will be pleased to advise you.

 

 

 

 

 

Care.Data Programme

Information about you is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and your care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service to help provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care your received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information that does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

 

This is a separate programme from the Summary Care Record (listed on the right).
