CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING
From 30th October 2014 we will be making changes to the way you currently order your repeat prescriptions. We will be replacing this with Emis Access which will enable you to order your medication directly into the practice clinical system. You will also be able to book appointments online to see a GP of your choice.
If you still want to place prescription orders online you will need to call into the practice and pick up a patient access registration form.
If you are not able to come to surgery you can log onto the following internet address and follow the online instructions.

Stonyhill Medical Practice sometimes has to consent to Audit by the Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group or other outside agencies. This means doctors from outside our practice may need access to medical or computer records of our patients. Medical records may be used for educational purposes. Because of this, we ask patients registering with us to sign a consent form giving permission for their records to be used in this way. This information is completely confidential and does not leave the practice.
This website is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. It tells you about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates.
