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.

When We Are Closed

out_of_hoursIf you need urgent medical care or advice when the surgery is closed then ring the normal surgery telephone number. Your call will be transferred to the out of hours provider who will take details from you. You will be contacted by a member of the clinical team there and may be asked to attend a base at Eye or the West Suffolk Hospital for treatment. If clinically necessary you will receive a home visit.

All details of any contact with the out of hours team are sent to the surgery before 8.00am so that the practice is aware of your consultation. The West Suffolk CCG is responsible for the commissioning of the Out of Hours Service.
