Welcome to GPS Healthcare
‘To provide high quality primary care services which improve the health and social care outcomes for the population of Solihull’
Changes to Prescription Ordering
Effective from the 1st September 2017 GPS Healthcare will no longer be able to accept prescription orders from Pharmacy’s. Prescriptions may only be ordered by Patients, their Carers or Relatives with our reception teams.
Over the last few years, many patients have allowed their Pharmacy to order their medication on their behalf, which has resulted in many medications being wasted as they were never needed or only needed occasionally .
We alongside other practices in Solihull and across Birmingham have decided to change this system. Our aim is to save NHS resources be eliminating this medicines waste.
GPS Healthcare is providing extra appointments in the first quarter of 2018 in anticipation of increased demand during the winter months.
Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment – have your say!
Solihull Council would like to hear your views on a draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) which will help ensure residents have good access to local pharmacy (chemist) services.
This is a follow-up consultation from a survey carried out in September asking for people’s views on pharmacy services in Solihull.
The draft PNA looks at the current provision of pharmaceutical services across Solihull and whether they meet the current and future needs of residents, identifying any potential gaps in services.
NHS England will use the PNA when making decisions regarding applications for new or changes to, existing pharmaceutical services. It will also be used by NHS England, Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Solihull Council to inform their commissioning of local pharmaceutical services.
The draft PNA has been put together on behalf of Solihull Health and Wellbeing Board using the analysis of local health needs, local information, intelligence, and surveys with the public and pharmacies.
Please read the draft PNA and share your views by completing a short survey. They can be found on Solihull Council’s website.
The closing date for the consultation is Monday 22 January 2018. Your answers will be used to inform the final PNA which will be ready for publication by 1 April 2018.
If you are over 65 or in an at risk group please book in to have your flu vaccine.
Flu appointments are available across all our sites. Other Dates/Times are available, please phone reception to book an appointment.
