Electronic Prescription Service - 22 October 2014
The Electronic Prescription Service enables GP's to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser such as a pharmacy of the patient's choice.  This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients. You can discuss this with your usual pharmacist who will arrange for the pharmacy nomination form to be completed or ask at the surgery for more information.  The Electronic Prescription Service is not compulsory.  All patients deciding to use this service will still need to order their prescriptions as usual.  We would like to remind you that practice staff cannot direct patients to a named pharmacy and it is the patient's choice to name a nominated pharmacy.
 
Transfer of Electronic Patient Information
NHS England is continuing to develop the facility of transferring patient information electronically within GP Practices.  This includes:
- Transfer of Patient Records between Practices when a patient registers or de-registers with a GP Practice
- The facility to enable patient to view online, export or print any summary information from their records i.e. medication, allergies, adverse reactions and any   additional information agreed between the GP and The Patient.
-  The Summary Care Record enables healthcare staff faster and easier access to essential information about you i.e. medication, allergies, and adverse reactions.  This information will only be viewed in an emergency or in urgent care settings with the explicit consent of the patient unless the patient is unable to give their consent e.g. if they are unconscious.

Oakenhall Medical Practice intends to achieve these requirements by 31st of March 2015
