Changes to products available on prescription in Calderdale

NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has recommended that GPs stop routinely prescribing a number of lower value products and branded medicines. The NHS in Calderdale could save around £300,000 each year by stopping prescribing these self-care treatments, which are widely available to buy, without a prescription, from pharmacies and supermarkets.

Please see our prescription section for further details.

*********************************

 

Dial 111 for all urgent care and when the surgery is closed.

Changes to how to order your Repeat Prescriptions from 1st April 18

From 1st April NHS Calderdale CCG has taken the decision to recommend that we cannot accept orders from 3rd Parties (Pharmacies, online pharmacies and medical equipment supplies). 

We understand that we will have a certain cohort of patients who will need assistance with ordering their medication. The practice is working closely with local pharmacies to identify patients who should be EXEMPT.

You will now need to order your own medication.

Why this is happening:

  •  
    • Prevent waste through medicines being over ordered.
    • Reduce spend on unwanted medicine
    • Prevent stockpiling medicines
    • Put patients in control of their own medicines.

 

You will need to order your repeat prescriptions from Rosegarth/Siddal Surgery when you have at least 7-10 days of medicines left.

      • Did you know you can order online using a smartphone app or a computer? Please ask a receptionist for an online registration pack. You will need to show photographic ID & proof of address in order to obtain access and password.
      • Drop off or post your repeat prescription request at the Practice.
      • Remember we need 2-3 working days to issue a prescription, so don’t leave it till the last minute.
