Birtley Medical Group has changed the way it deals with repeat prescriptions from 3rd January 2017.
To make it easier & safer for patients to obtain repeat prescriptions, patients will no longer be able to order these over the telephone with the surgery. However, repeat prescriptions can still be posted into the repeat prescriptions box located in the entrance to the surgery, be requested via the Patient Access online service (Please click the Patient Access logo below) or arranged directly by telephoning your pharmacy.
Please remember to give a minimum of 48 hours’ notice for your prescription to be processed.
Fitting & removal of contraceptive implants can no longer be carried out at the surgery, however alternative providers for this service are available at Trinity Square Health Centre. Alternatively a referral can be made for you to attend Wrekenton Medical Group.
Details for Patient Access
Once registered for this service, patients can immediately book or cancel two appointments online. Upon appropriate I.D. verification with a receptionist, patients can have additional services enabled such as booking additional appointments, managing repeat prescriptions, and access to aspects of their medical record. Please be aware some services can take up to 28 days to be approved.
(Please click T41C Application for online access to my medical record form to see a list of appropriate I.D. to bring with you).
NB: Patients signing up to online access, need to produce appropriate I.D. at reception within 6 months of initial sign up, after which time patients will need to re-register.
