ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE (EPS) As from the 26th June, Danebridge Group Practice has been able to offer the Electronic Prescription Service to our patients. The EPS gives patients the choice to have their prescription sent electronically to their nominated Pharmacy, rather than having to come into the surgery to collect it. The pharmacy can be near to where you live, work or shop, whatever is the most convenient.If you would like to use the EPS you must first ‘nominate’ a pharmacy. This is done by going into your chosen pharmacy and completing a consent form (forms are also available from reception, but these must be given back to the pharmacy NOT to the surgery). This service is not compulsory and patients can continue to request and collect their prescriptions as they do now if that is preferred.

CARE QUALITY COMMISSION (CQC) The Care Quality Commission make sure hospitals, care homes, dental and GP surgeries and all other care services in England provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care and encourage providers to make improvements. This is done by an Inspection.Danebridge Group Practice received an inspection from the CQC in June 2015. -CLICK HERE FOR THE REPORTIf you would like more information about the CQC, please visit their website at www.cqc.org.uk
