May 2018 Newsletter


There will be no GP availability at Barrowford Surgery for the week commencing 27th May.  This means that paper prescriptions will not be processed as normal.

It is recommended that patients register for EPS (Electronic Prescription System) with their local pharmacy or simply ask a receptionist to set this up for you.  Prescriptions are ordered in the same way, but are processed electronically, meaning your prescription is ready to collect from the pharmacy without having to come into the surgery.

If you would rather not have EPS, please be aware that your prescription will be collectable from our Yarnspinners surgery for that week.
