Response to article in May edition of Stanton Steamer regarding pharmacy application

Stanton Surgery Pharmacy Application - The Facts

Stanton Surgery’s Pharmacy Application – the Facts

The practice would like to correct some inaccurate statements made in this month’s Stanton Steamer by stating the following facts:

• The practice has made an application to open a pharmacy

• The purpose of making this application is to protect the dispensing service at Stanton Surgery from compulsorily having to cease if a corporate pharmacy chain or independent pharmacy makes a successful application to open in the village

• If the application is successful, patients of Ixworth, Botesdale and Woolpit surgeries who live in Stanton will still be able to obtain their medication from their own practice

• This is because all three of the other surgeries have already made successful applications to run their own pharmacies from their own premises

• If the application is successful, patients will not notice any change in the way their medication is dispensed from the surgery

• If the application is unsuccessful, dispensing services at Stanton Surgery will be protected from corporate or independent pharmacies opening for the next five years

Prescription Delivery Service Launch

Our new prescription delivery service from the Stanton surgery for all registered patients has been launched. We are able to deliver to collection points at the post office in Hopton, Barningham and Garboldisham.

Our Practice is committed to develop the delivery of better care to our patients utilising the Information Technology developed through and under the direction of NHS England. We currently use Summary Care Record, GP2GP Transfer and Patient Access Online for appointments, repeat medication requests and viewable summary care record. The Practice is committed to include detailed coded information as part of the Patient Access Online facility by 31st March 2016.


Do It Online

February 2017

The system for ordering repeat medications is now part of the integrated system which allows you to book/cancel GP appointments and view your medical record. Please see our PRESCRIPTIONS page for further details. 

Online appointments booking and records access is part of the new system that fully meets the latest legislation whilst bringing together your access needs with a single new system.  The system will bring together all aspects of the patient online experience including access to summary care record data, managing appointments and requesting repeat prescriptions.

This will require a new account for any patient wishing to use this service.  Please attend the surgery in person to request your online account details. You will be provided with login details and will need to think of a secure password which is unique to you.  It will be your responsibility to keep your login and password safe and secure.

You will need to bring a piece of photographic identification in support of your application. 

You will be asked to complete a form at reception and will be given an information leaflet which contains important information about the new service and your responsibilities. You can download a copy of the information leaflet if you wish (click the link below).

Please note at times of heavy demand, such as winter pressures or holidays, you may have to wait a little longer for a routine appointment.
