Healthy Living Practices Scheme

Kingswinford Medical Practice are taking part in a new pilot scheme to enable our receptionists to assist patients who don't require the services of the GP, but instead could be helped by community support, thereby allowing more people to make appointments who need them.  

Receptionists from 8 practices around the borough

The scheme, giving GP receptionists more training to offer patients health advice, is being trialled in surgeries around the borough and if successful will eventually be rolled out to all 41 GP practices around the borough.

NHS Electronic Prescription Service


Are you one of the 51% of our patients that have registered for the NHS Electronic Prescription service? If so, thank you!

If you aren't already registered, would you be interested in registering?

As explained below registration allows us to send your prescriptions directly to your nominated pharmacy-as such, you won't need to attend the surgery to collect your prescription, saving you time.

You can choose the most convenient place for you, such as near your home, where you shop, or where you work. This is flexible and can be changed at any time-just let our reception team or your pharmacy know.

EPS is reliable, secure and confidential. Your electronic prescription will be seen by the same people in GP practices, pharmacies, and NHS prescription payment and fraud agencies that see your paper prescription now.

Please ask a member of our reception team for further information.
