ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE

This practice is now able to offer the Electronic Prescription Service, so if you nominate a pharmacy, your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy. If you would like to take advantage of this service and haven’t yet completed a nomination form at your chosen pharmacy, you should ask your preferred pharmacy to set your nomination. You don’t need a computer to do this.

This will not affect the way that you order/ request prescriptions from us.

Benefits for you

If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.

Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose – whether it’s near home, work or the shops.

You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive, If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, the can be ordered in ready for you.

What happens if you do not wish to use the service?

 

Nothing – You will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.

 How information about you helps us to provide better care

Confidential information from your medical records can be used by the NHS to improve the services offered so we can provide the best possible care for everyone.

 

This information along with your postcode and NHS number  but not your name, are sent to a secure system where  it can be linked with other health information.

 

This allows those planning NHS services or carrying out 

medical research to use information from different parts 
of the NHS in a way which does not identify you.
 
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information 
to be used in this way you do not have to do anything.
 
If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from 
happening, please speak to practice staff or ask at 
reception for a copy of the leaflet “How information 
about you helps us to provide better care”.
 
 
 

 National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme.

We've all done the test at home: Product code BCSPPSTRA4

The NHS Bowel Cancer Screening Programme is now fully rolled out.

This means that most people in their sixties will have already received an invitation from the programme.

It is important that you send back the FOBt kit, even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.  For further information please visit www.cancerscreening.nhs.uk/bowel/bowel-cancer.html

Screening is for people without symptoms.

If you are concerned about any symptoms, please contact your GP or visit NHS Direct Online.

There were 37,514 new cases of bowel cancer diagnosed in England in 2009, 18,538 males and 15,066 females. This represents rates of 57.3 per 100,000 males, 37.6 per 100,000 females and 46.6 per 100,000 overall.

What are the risk factors?

  • Age: Bowel cancer can occur in younger people but 8 out of 10 people who get cancer of the bowel are over the age of 60.
  • A previous bowel polyp
  • Personal history of chronic bowel inflammation: Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease will slightly increase the risk of developing bowel cancer.
  • Diet: A diet that is high in red meat and fat and low in vegetables, folate and fibre may increase the risk of bowel cancer.
  • Lack of exercise: Moderate exercise may help prevent bowel cancer.
  • Obesity: Being overweight or obese may increase the risk of bowel cancer.
  • Smoking and alcohol: Although not as strong a risk factor as for other cancers, smoking may also increase the risk of bowel cancer, particularly in heavy drinkers. Alcohol consumption may increase risk, especially in those with low levels of folate in their diet.
  • Family history: Fewer than 1 in 10 cases of bowel cancer are due to an inherited gene defect. However, there are certain families who have an increased risk of developing bowel cancer due to a variety of conditions including familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and hereditary non-polyposis colon cancer (HNPCC).
  • Personal history of bowel cancer: Having had bowel cancer before increases the risk of a new cancer developing.

For a more detailed discussion of the risk factors see Cancer Research UK - risk factors .
