Outside Surgery Hours
If you need a doctor outside our normal surgery hours, EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBERS are available at all times on : 01254 282282. The Practice operates out-of-hours cover as part of East Lancashire Medical Services (ELMS) - a service operated by local General Practitioners and nurses.
The Surgery will be closed on Bank Holidays. However, a range of other health services are available during these periods. For more information about health services and pharmacy opening times during Bank Holidays, please visit www.eastlancspct.nhs.uk
A NEW SERVICE - ELECTRONIC ACCESS - AVAILABLE OCTOBER
Patient Access is a new service that allows you to access the Practice online. Initially we will be offering the facility to:
- Book or cancel your appointment at your convenience
- See a list of your medication and request a repeat prescription
The system is intended to be quick and easy to use, avoiding queues and busy telephone lines. All data is protected to the highest standard internet security, so you can be sure that your personal information is safe and secure.
Ask at Reception for details of how to register - you will need to bring in photographic evidence of your identity such as a Passport or Driving Licence, and you will be given a registration letter which will include any passwords or login details you need.
Once you have registered at Reception, you can access the system here.
Please note: The first time you access the system, you will be asked to click on the green 'register' button on the Patient Access website. This link will ask for the details contained within your registration letter.
Following this initial online registration, you will simply be able to log in subsequently using your username and password on the right hand side of the screen.
HOW INFORMATION ABOUT YOU HELPS THE NHS TO PROVIDE BETTER CARE
Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so that the best possible care can be provided for everyone.
This information, along with your postcode and your NHS number - but not your name - are sent to a secure system where it can be linked with other health information. This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out medical research to use information from different parts of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
You have a choice: If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. However, if you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happenning, please ask at Reception for a copy of the leaflet "How Information About You Helps Us To Provide Better Care." More information can also be found at www.nhs.uk/caredata
