The next Saturday Surgery has not yet been arranged. It will probably be September. We will let you know the dates soon.

As from 3rd March 2014 we are ceasing to take prescription requests over the telephone for the following reasons:-
The NHS no longer supports the re-ordering of prescriptions over the telephone. This is to ensure patient safety and to avoid mistakes. This policy is being upheld by the prescribing clinicians at this surgery.
This will also avoid blocking the phone lines which will increase telephone access when patients are tying to make appointments, request advice or emergency help.
Your options to re-order a repeat prescription
Order online from January 2014 - forms are available to register to enable you to do this at the surgery. Please ask one of the receptionists who will be able to supply further information.
Deliver or post your repeat slip to the surgery making sure your items are clearly indicated.
Leave your repeat slip at the chemist
Come into the surgery and use one of the repeat request slips which are on reception and hand back to the receptionist.
Please allow 48 hours for the turnaround of repeat medications and slightly longer if the prescription is to go to a chemist outside of Lyme Regis.
You are now able to make routine appointments online. To register for online services please contact theReception Desk at the Practice who will provide you with a user ID and Password. You can then access the online system via the 'Do it online' tab.
SUMMARY CARE RECORD:
There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.
Why do I need a Summary Care Record?
Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.
This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.
Who can see it?
Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record.
You are now able to view your Summary Care Record when you register for our online services. If you wish to opt out of having a Summary Care Record please fill out the form on the'Do it online' tab
