Pick a pharmacy for Pancake Day

On Pancake Day, Tuesday 25th February, Brierley Park will move entirely to using electronic prescriptions. This is mandated by NHS England, will help the environment (saving paper and ink), and release Doctors’ time.

You can help this transition by picking a pharmacy, where your prescriptions will usually go electronically. If you don’t Pick a Pharmacy, or need to use a different pharmacy than usual, you will get a Prescription Token. This looks like your usual paper prescription but has a barcode for your pharmacy. Your Doctor does not need to sign it.

To ensure the process is efficient, it is important that requests for medications are submitted with at least 48 hours’ notice. It will no longer be possible to sign late-requested paper prescriptions on the day while patients wait. Urgent requests will normally be dealt with electronically by the On-Call Doctor at fixed points in the day and patients will need to liaise with their chosen pharmacy or collect a token from the practice at the end of the day.

Have you asked your pharmacist?

Minor short term illnesses can be treated at home or by getting advice from your local pharmacy. You don't always need a doctor or nurse for:

 

- Coughs, colds and blocked nose

- Hay fever

- Headaches or Migraines

- Indigestion and heartburn

- Minor pains (aches, sprains or strains)

- Constipation or diahorrea

- Temperature or fever

 

If your symptoms are not improving after a few days of treatment with over the counter medications, you should contact the local pharmacist or your GP for more advice.
