GHRA achieves Gold Award

Galley Hill Residents Association has been awarded a gold certificate in our recent Helth Check by Milton Keynes Council. This is very good news indeed for future funding and is mainly due to a lot of hard work and form filling mainly by our Chairman David.
Jenna Smith from Milton Keynes Council | Housing & Community Group dropped by to the coffee morning today to give us the physical certificate.


Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering


In line with many clinical commissioning groups nationally, and in particular Luton, Bedfordshire and Nene / Northamptonshire, NHS Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group is recommending to GP practices that they do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions from community pharmacies.  Work elsewhere has shown a high level of waste particularly when the patient isn’t contacted by the pharmacy before the repeat is requested from the practice.  See below where we have attached a leaflet that patients will receive along with a personalised letter from their practice.  Practices will also take the opportunity to promote sign up to on-line services.
