Changes to how your medication is ordered
From 1st January 2018 your Pharmacist will no longer be able to order any medication on your behalf. This is what now happens for most surgeries in Tameside and we have been asked to do this by our commissioners.
We feel that encouraging our patients to order their own medication ensures that they are taking responsibility for their own health and also helps to discourage pharmacies from ordering unwanted items.
You can continue to order your medication at the surgery by using your re-order slip but we would suggest that you order on-line (Please ask our Staff for details); this is quicker for us and possibly more convenient for you as you can do this from home 24/7, even if you are away on holiday!
You can also arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a specific Pharmacy, to make the process easier for you. Our Staff or your Pharmacist will be able to set this up for you.
If you are aware of anyone who might not be able to order their medication themselves for any reason, then please let our Staff know.
