URGENT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING INFORMATION

To reduce the risks of spreading Coronavirus for patients and staff we will NOT accept paper prescription requests until further notice.  We do not want patients entering the practice exposing themselves or our staff to risk of infection. You should request your prescription in one of the following ways:-


*NHS App - available in the App Store (Apple or Android). It’s easy to use and you can order your prescriptions quickly and easily. You can even see when they've been approved by a GP.


*Go to PatientAccess.com - we can send you a link to get started in creating an account if you do not already have one.


*You can email us at prescriptions.mrmc@nhs.net


You need to decide where we should send your prescription electronically. It can be to any pharmacy. You will not be able to collect your prescription from the Reception desk - please let us know your pharmacy preference. 


We no longer accept requests or produce paper prescriptions.


In some circumstances during this pandemic we will accept telephone requests for those unable to use the alternatives above, but you will still need to have a nominated pharmacy.


Thank you for your patience and understanding.


When We Are Closed

.

When Manchester Road Medical Centre is Closed

closedA doctor is always on call between the hours that the surgery closes and re-opens the following day and also at weekends when the surgery is closed. Patients are asked to ring the freephone out of hours service on 111.

Please only use this service if you feel the problem is urgent and cannot wait until normal surgery hours.

NHS 111

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

You can also visit theNHS Choices Website for non-urgent advice and information.

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
