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.

STATEMENT OF INTENT

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.

 


Summary Care Record

All GP Practices have to achieve full Summary Care Record upload by 31st March 2015. Our implementation date is 1st September 2014. Please see the statement of intent below. If you wish to opt out of the summary care recod upload please complete the form at the following link and return it to the practice.

Summary Care Record Opt Out Form

Your medical record and you- Statement of Intent

It is important that your medical record is available  when and where you need it.

You may feel, especially if you have an extensive  medical history, that it is very important for some of your medical information to be available if you were on holiday away from the practice area and /or taken  ill and ended up in hospital.  Having your Summary Care Record (SCR) available will help anyone treating you without your full medical record.  They will have access to information about any medication you may be taking and any drugs that you have a recorded allergy or sensitivity to.

Your SCR is automatically  updated on at least a daily basis to ensure that your information is as up to date as it can possibly be.

 

Of course if you do not want your medical records to be available in this way then you will need to let us know so that we can update your record.

 

Your medical records when leaving the practice.

It is very important that you are registered with a doctor near to where you live. We encourage patients to do this as soon as possible if they move out of the practice area.  Once you have re registered with a new GP, your medical records will be forwarded on to them via NHS England.
