IMPORTANT CHANGES TO URGENT CARE SERVICES IN THE SOUTH TEES AREA FROM 1st APRIL 2017.

 

From 1st April 2017 the existing Walk-in Centres in North Ormesby and Eston will be replaced by four GP centres based in North Ormesby Health Village, One Life Centre in Linthorpe (now Bluebell Medical Centre), Redcar Primary Care Hospital and East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton. These centres will be open from 6pm to 9.30pm - Monday to Friday - and 8am to 9.30pm on weekends and Bank Holidays.

 

To help improve patient waiting times the centres will operate an appointment based system - you won’t be able to simply walk-in.

 

Please click the link below for further information including details of how to arrange an appointment when we are closed.

Many Thanks.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD)

REPEAT DISPENSING is a new service which is being applied to GP surgeries and pharmacies nationwide. It enables your GP practice to issue your repeat prescriptions up to 12 months in advance. Your medication will still be reviewed by your GP regularly and you will still go and collect your medication as normal from your nominated pharmacy either monthly or two monthly.

Repeat dispensing is a huge benefit to your GP practice, but it also has benefits for you:

Do you want to save time? Has your regular medication been the same for the past 6 months?

    • You do not have to remember to order it every month as your prescription has already been issued
    • If you forget your medication whilst on holiday in the UK, with your permission, your prescription can be retrieved from any system
    • Support your local GP surgery. Your GP will only need to sign one prescription per batch of medication, which in turn saves time and improves patient safety

If you are happy to go onto the REPEAT DISPENSING system, please follow the link below and hand the completed form to Reception

If you have any questions you can ask at your local pharmacy or enquire about it with the prescription clerk or Practice Pharmacist

‘Our practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.’
