Noticeboard

myGP app

We are aware that some patients are having issues with the myGP app.  This can be either a very slow connection or the inability to order repeat medication.  myGP are aware of this and are working to resolve the issue. You can, however, use Patient Access either via the app or on your PC.  Click here for details on how to register for Patient Access.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

For your safety, due to COVID-19, we have changed the way you get your flu vaccine this year.

Please note: unless you are in an at-risk category, people in the 50-64 year old age group will not be vaccinated until November at the earliest, providing there is sufficient vaccine. This is to ensure that those who are most at risk are vaccinated first. 

Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19 or is close to someone who has COVID-19.

The message from Public Health to parents in Lancashire is that you should continue to use the national portal or 119 to arrange a test for your child, and you should not contact their GP. Anyone who tries to book a test and is unable to do so, or who is offered a location or time which is not convenient, is being asked to please wait a few hours and then try again.

Ordering Medication

To order your medication, you can:

  • phone your nominated pharmacy and ask them to order on your behalf. Your local pharmacy may offer a home delivery service.
  • use the myGP app on a smart phone or tablet to request medication and collect from your nominated pharmacy or if available arrange delivery.
  • Alternatively, patients may post their prescription request in the post box at any of our sites and so avoid the need to come into the surgery. These will be checked regularly throughout the day.

If you have not already nominated a pharmacy, please phone the surgery and speak to one of our Reception Team to do so or visit your chosen pharmacy and ask them to sign you up for EPS prescriptions.  Please note doing this WILL NOT order your prescription – you will still need to choose one of the methods above.

We would also ask that you order your medication in plenty of time, and allow 4 working days for a prescription to arrive at your nominated pharmacy.
