Changes to ordering of Repeat Prescriptions within Sunderland CCG GP Practices

From the 16th of May 2018, a large number of GP Practices within the Sunderland CCG area will stop taking prescription requests from pharmacies on behalf of patients. This move has come from the CCG to reduce wastage in medications. However, there are a number of patients who will be able to order via the pharmacy (those on repeat dispensing and those who receive weekly trays are still eligbile to order via the pharmacy). Woodlands Pharmacy are still committed to collecting, dispensing and delivering prescriptions and our service will not change, however we must respect the changes set out by the GP practices and direct patients to their practices when ordering medication.
