Who we are
Based in the Bollington site the Middlewood Prescribing Team is made up of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and support administrators
GPs are rostered to assist the team for both the morning and afternoon sessions, working alongside them and taking responsibility for clinical decisions that arise.
What we do
We process prescription requests sent to us by the administrative teams based across the four middlewood sites, ensuring that all items ordered are assessed, issued if appropriate with queries being passed on to the supporting GPs . We also inform patients of any blood tests, other checks and/or medication reviews they require.
Some of the other roles we are involved in include:
- Answering medication queries from colleagues, pharmacies, and patients
- Supporting practitioners to make sure patients are making the best use of medicines
- Ensuring Cheshire medicine management guidelines are followed which means that evidence based safe , effective and cost efficient prescribing is adhered to .
- Actioning medication safety alerts and recalls.Please remember that while we aim to process your prescription as soon as we can some requests can take up to 72 hours to issue. At busy times this can increase by 24 hours.
