CHANGES TO THE APPOINTMENTS SYSTEM
From the 1st October 2014 we will be taking part in a 6 month pilot project along with several other surgeries in Brighton & Hove, looking at ways to improve access to your surgery.
How will this affect me?
When you ring for an appointment with a doctor you will be given a time for a telephone consultation, we may ask you for additional information to help the doctor prioritise, the doctor will phone you back within an hour of your appointment time. Then, if you need to be seen in the surgery the doctor will arrange this at a time convenient for you. Whenever possible this will be with your regular doctor.
Why are things changing?
The aim is to improve access to appointments. Many things can be sorted out on the telephone, which means you may not need to come to the surgery, which hopefully will be more convenient for you.
During this 6 month pilot scheme there will also be access to additional evening and weekend appointments at 175 Preston Road for those who find it difficult to get to the surgery on weekdays. Whilst these appointments will not be with a doctor or nurse from this surgery, they will be able to access to your GP records. The surgery can book these appointments for you. These extra appointments are in addition to our existing Monday evening and Saturday morning surgeries.
For convenience, please try to phone between 8am and 4pm weekdays.
Half day closure
Please note Stanford Medical Centre and Islingword Road Surgery will be closed from 1pm on Thursday 23rd October 2014 for Staff training.
There will be no Doctors/Nurses or Reception staff available during this time.
The surgery will re-open at 8am 24th October 2014.
In case of an emergency please call 0845 145 0121 up to 6.30pm - after 6.30pm please call 111
Statement of Intent - Patient Online: Records Access

Patients will be able to view this information by logging onto an online account. This will be the same online account which some patients already use to book appointments and order repeat medication.

The practice would like to know what patients think about online services, please send your feedback to email@example.com

Electronic Prescription Service
What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)?
EPS is an NHS funded service in England. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the healthcare professional you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
If you currently collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be more time for your repeat
prescriptions to be prepared before you arrive.
For more information about EPS visit www.cfh.nhs.uk/eps, or ask your pharmacy or talk to us.
