EVERGREEN HEALTH APP

 

Please note the evergreen health app does not integrate with our clinical system.

If you try to use this for prescriptions or appointments you will fail to make contact.

Please remove the app and replace it with a TPP app that can be downloaded from your app store.

You will still need to register at the practice to have ON-LINE access.

On-Line Services ( posted on Aug 4, 2017 )

On-Line Services

 

We are now up and running with the on-line services.

 

We recommend that any patient, that has access to a computer/smart phone or other device that will allow access to the internet, register for the service.

 

It is very easy to use and will save you time and effort. The service will give you access to appointments (if any are available), ordering repeat prescriptions, vaccinations / immunisations and limited access to your clinical record if you wish it.

 

We also recommend that you sign up with a pharmacist of your choice for electronic prescribing to save you having to come into the surgery to pick up a prescription.

New Rules to Prescribing ( posted on Nov 15, 2016 )

From 31 October 2016 the majority of patients in East Leicestershire and Rutland will no longer be prescribed medicines by their GP if they are available over the counter at pharmacies and supermarkets. These medicines will include pain killers, cough medicines, hayfever tablets and coldsore treatments. 

 

Some patients will be exempt from this change if they have particular conditions, for example those who need paracetamol to manage chronic pain, and these people are being advised to discuss this with their GP.

Dr Richard Palin, GP and East Leicestershire and Rutland CCG Governing Body Member, said: “As national and local NHS budgets are tightened, we must ensure we spend our money wisely. As a CCG we need to find £18 million in savings this year. It costs the NHS around three times as much to prescribe these medicines than it does for people to buy them at the pharmacy. By asking patients to buy medicines such as paracetamol, hayfever treatments and cold remedies from their pharmacist or supermarket, we can use the savings to fund essential health care.”

 

Dr Palin adds: “Other CCGs in the country have already taken this step and we would rather make this change than have to look at taking funding away from other more essential healthcare services.

“If patients find their prescriptions are discontinued but they believe they shouldn’t have been, we would urge them to talk to their GP in the first instance. If patients are still concerned about the changes they can then contact the medicines management team at the CCG.”
