We sincerely apologise if you have been inconvenienced by the temporary removal of online access to your medical notes.
We have had to change how we manage requests for online access to make sure we comply with new GDPR regulations.
You are absolutely entitled to online access and we would be very happy to reinstate it but we do need to ask that you complete some additional paperwork. Please read through the patient information leaflet for further guidance and then click on the link below to download a copy of the form.
Thank you for your patience in this matter.
The Partners of Whalley Surgery.
NHS ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE AND ONLINE PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
- In March 2018 we are introducing the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
- This is a free, confidential and safe service that makes obtaining your prescription quicker and easier
- If you are a dispensing patient, your prescription will automatically be sent electronically to the Practice Dispensary
- If you are not a dispensing patient, your doctor will send an electronic prescription to your chosen pharmacy
- In the future, for safety reasons and to reduce medication waste, the Practice may look at stopping repeat prescription requests directly from pharmacies
- We encourage all our patients to order their requests online via the Patient Access system, please ask a member of staff for further details.
- Alternatively prescription requests can be posted to or dropped off at the surgery.

SABDEN & WHALLEY MEDICAL PRACTICE PUBLICATION OF EARNINGS The average pay for GPs working in the Sabden & Whalley Medical Practice in the last financial year before tax and National Insurance was £71,591 This is for 5 full time GPs, 5 part time GPs, and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months. 2018/19 All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. It should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
