Save Your Time and Paper!
Do you know about Electronic Prescribing?
You can have your prescriptions sent directly to your chosen pharmacy (EPS). In doing so you will no longer have a paper prescription to collect, it will go directly to the pharmacy of your choice. Please speak to your pharmacy or reception regarding this.
Some of your medication may be eligible for repeat dispensing (eRD). This means the doctor may be able to give you up to six month's worth of your medication in one go. You will not have to request your medication again until your last prescription is issued. Not all medication can be issued on repeat dispensing. You may want to discuss this with your doctor or inform a receptionist.
We have reviewed our prescribing policy and Prescriptions will now only take TWO WORKING DAYS to complete!
Prescriptions MUST be requested BEFORE 12:45pm in order to be ready for collection AFTER 3pm two days later.
In preparation for #CarersWeek 10th-16th June, we want to celebrate our MANY Wonderful Carers at YWHC by asking patients to NOMINATE a CARER into our raffle for a Hamper! We will draw a name and contact the Winner so remember to provide reception with contact details. Good Luck! pic.twitter.com/cZVq43eR27

Chronic Review Recall
We have introduced a new annual review recall system grouping chronic conditions together into one letter where possible and calling for patients alphabetically. For this year only you may receive your recall letter earlier than you would expect to attend, but we would still like you to make the required appointments. Through introducing this new system we aim to reduce the amount of letters/correspondence we send you, reduce multiple and unnecessary blood tests and save the amount of time patients take to attend the surgery for multiple reviews.
Your Eye Health
The Association of Optometrists (AOP) has produced information leaflets designed to help patients recognise and treat eye conditions. The leaflets form part of the Association of Optometrists patient resources – a suite of more than 10 leaflets and videos on eye health including sight-threatening conditions such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma.
