(Added 1 December 2017)

Most medicines have two names - the unbranded (Generic) and the brand name that the company who first produced it may use.

As a result of imposed arrangements by our drug wholesaler we are no longer able to guarantee a specific make of generic medication.

Where appropriate we will continue to work within NHS budgets and prescribe medication by its Generic name but will not be able to guarantee that the medication is from the same manufacturer. The type and strength of your medication will remain the same.

(Added 18 October 2017)

Many patients have a basic Summary Care Record which allows other services such as hospital A&E departments and Out of Hours to view basic details i.e. address, current medication and reactions to medicines.

We can upgrade a Summary Care Record by making it an Enhanced Summary Care Record with your consent.  This means allowing access to additional information such as:

  • Long Term Conditions
  • Relevant Medical History
  • Healthcare Needs and Personal Preferences
  • Immunisations

For further information on how to go about getting an Enhanced Summary Record please access the following:-

Thank you.
