Prescriptions can still be ordered online, and via posting your request slip in the box OUTSIDE the surgery. Patients are advised to ask their pharmacy to sign them up as their nominated pharmacy and prescriptions will now all be sent electronically without the need for coming into the building to collect them. We can also now accept an emailed request for repeat medication at culcheth.mc@nhs.net and we can help vulnerable patients with orders over the telephone as long as the patient is clear on what medication they need.

PRESCRIPTIONS ARE CURRENTLY TAKING THE PRACTICE 72 HOURS TO PROCESS DUE TO DEMAND AND THEN IT TAKES A FURTHER 72 HOURS FOR THE PHARMACIES TO COMPLETE.

OUR SERVICES ARE WORKING AT CAPACITY TO TRY TO GET YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION REQUESTS PROCESSED AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE.

YOUR PATIENCE AT THIS TIME WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Information about Rescue Packs

There has been some misinformation on social media about rescue packs. We would like to highlight a recent social media post from Asthma UK:

 “We’ve been made aware of some posts on social media, saying that if you have a respiratory/lung disease your GP will issue a rescue pack of steroids and antibiotics. This is recommended for some people with COPD to be used as part of a personalised plan. However for people with asthma, we do NOT recommend these as standard.

“If someone’s asthma is bad enough to consider steroids it is essential they are assessed by a healthcare professional. Even at this busy time for the NHS, getting early support for any problems with your lungs is critical to keep you well and out of hospital.”

Please visit the Asthma UK website for further advice about coronavirus and your asthma.​

Only patients who normally have a COPD rescue pack should order one.
