Welcome to Walton Village Medical Centre
Walton village Medical Centre is committed to providing high quality medical care in a friendly environment.
We have been practising from the same building for more than 18 years, and the practice is undergoing changes to deliver Modern family practice in a traditional setting.
We believe that patients receive the best possible care when it's provided by a healthcare professional who genuinely knows their patient. This personal approach is vital for primary care. That's why we make it a priority to get to know our patients, understand their circumstances and healthcare requirements.
CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ORDERING
Liverpool CCG Intranet Update on direct patient ordering
Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering
The NHS in Liverpool is making a change to how repeat prescriptions can be ordered.
From summer 2018 patients in Liverpool will no longer be able to use a third party, such as a high street or internet pharmacy to order repeat prescriptions on their behalf. Instead patients will need to order repeat prescriptions direct from their GP themselves – either in person at their practice, via GP online services, or by post.
A letter and information leaflet explaining this change in more detail is being sent to all patients who may be affected by this change. This information is also available in a range of other languages and formats here.
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please speak to a member of our practice staff for further help and advice.
