Sherwood Medical Partnership is working to improve our prescription process. Practices locally have been advised regarding the safety risks around taking telephone requests for prescriptions.
As such, please note that from 1st November 2019 the practice will cease to take prescription requests via telephone and answerphone message.
The practice will continue to process prescription requests via
- System Online
- Patient drop in prescription box at both sites
- Pharmacy requests
Any vulnerable patients who are concerned regarding the process for requesting their medication in future are encouraged to contact the practice to discuss available options.
Further information is available via the practice website or at both practice sites.
Many thanks for your patience in this matter.
Childhood immunisation survey for parents/carers
Parents in England are advised to immunise their children as per the national routine immunisation schedule to protect them from vaccine preventable diseases
Unfortunately, in the UK and locally, we are starting to see a steady decline in childhood immunisation uptake. NHS England and NHS Improvement, as the commissioners of the childhood immunisation programme in the Midlands, would like to gain an insight from parents/carers as to why, in some areas, fewer parents are accepting the offer of immunisations for their children.
We would love to hear your opinion regarding potential barriers that are preventing access to immunisation service and your suggestions as to how we can improve the delivery of immunisation services in your area. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. It will help us to continually improve immunisation services in the community.
The survey will be collated by the Screening and Immunisation Team (Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire) to improve service quality locally.
The survey is fully anonymous.
We’ve become increasingly aware from patient feedback that patients are experiencing a number of issues when requesting and collecting their repeat prescriptions at both our Farnsfield Surgery and Crown Medical Centre sites.
We recognise the frustration, inconvenience and distress this can cause patients and we are listening to what patients are telling us. We’re working on changes to our prescription system to make it safer, more efficient for patients and to reduce the challenges that patients are experiencing.
We are consulting with patients about these changes through the PPG groups and are working to make sustained changes rather than short term fixes. As such this may take some time to plan and implement but please be assured were working to improve the situation. During this time we ask for your continued patience and welcome feedback regarding the issues you’ve experienced.
