Named GP for all Patients
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. This GP has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required, based on the GP's clinical judgement.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. Please inform us if you wish to change your accountable GP.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
The notice applies to all patients at Park House Medical Centre including children. Patients over 75 have already been informed of their own GP.
Please note: There is no need to call the practice for this information.

Changes to Repeat Prescriptions Ordering
Pharmacies and suppliers of medical appliances will not be able to order medicines on your behalf
Instead you will need to order directly form your practice or online,
How to order your repeat prescription directly from your GP practice.
What are repeat prescriptions?
A repeat prescription allows you to get your regular medication without having to see your doctor each time.
What is changing?
Pharmacies and suppliers of medical appliances will not be able to order medicines on your behalf from 1st December 2017. Instead you will need to order your repeat prescription directly from your GP practice by.
- Online ordering through smartphone app or computer
- Dropping your repeat prescription request off at the GP practice
- Posting your repeat prescription request to your GP practice. Please allow 4-5 working days.
If you already order repeat prescriptions directly from your GP surgery this change will not affect you.
Pharmacies that collect prescriptions from GP surgeries, and pharmacies that deliver medications and other items to you will continue to do so.
What you need to do
As your GP practice will not accept repeat requests from pharmacies or other suppliers you will need to order your repeat prescriptions from your GP practice when you have 7 to 10 days of medicines left. You should contact your community pharmacy to let them know you have ordered a prescription if you wish for them to collect this for you.
Remember your GP practice needs 2–3 working days to issue a prescription, so don’t leave it until the last minute. The community pharmacy requires an additional 48 hours to dispense your medicines.
To register for online services you will need to visit your GP practice and request a user login.
Why is this happening?
Under the old system some patients built up a stock of unused medicines. The NHS can reduce the cost of waste medicines through improving repeat prescribing systems.
The new system is also safer as your GP can monitor your prescription more easily and discuss the prescription items that you continue to need at your regular review.
Who can I speak with to get help with this change?
In the first instance contact your GP surgery.

Third party processors
In order to deliver the best possible service, the practice will share data (where required) with other NHS bodies such as other GP practices and hospitals. In addition the practice will use carefully selected third party service providers. When we use a third party service provider to process data on our behalf then we will always have an appropriate agreement in place to ensure that they keep the data secure, that they do not share information other than in accordance with our instructions and that they are operating appropriately. Examples of functions that may be carried out by third parties includes:
- Companies that provide IT services & support, including our core clinical systems; systems which manage patient facing services (such as our website and service accessible through the same); data hosting service providers; systems which facilitate appointment bookings or electronic prescription services; document management services etc.
- Delivery services (for example if we were to arrange for delivery of any medicines to you).
- Payment providers (if for example you were paying for a prescription or a service such as travel vaccinations).
Further details regarding third party processors can be supplied on request.
