Prescriptions and Christmas 2019!

Cut off date for repeat prescription requests is Friday 13th December.

NHS England have recently published a new information standard about accessible information. It is called SCCI 1605 and it came into full force from 31st July 2016.

 

The standard sets out new rules for communication formats and represents a real step forward for people who are unable to read standard print to be able to access health information and appointments in a format that they can read.

 

If patients have a sight impairment and cannot read ordinary print, they can now request that any documentation that the practice sends to them, can be in the format indicated below.

Audio on CD

Audio on USB 

Braille grade 1 

Braille grade 2 

Email (please provide the Practice with your email address) 

Large print 18 point 

Large print 22 point 

Large print 24 point

If you would like to receive future correspondence from the Practice in any of these formats, please complete the document below and send this in to us.  We will process your requests and inform you within 21 days that we have recorded your required format on your clinical records.
