Changes to Repeat Prescriptions
In line with many CCGs nationally, NHS Milton Keynes CCG is recommending to GP practices that they do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions from community pharmacies. Work elsewhere has shown a high level of waste particularly when the patient isn’t contacted by the pharmacy before the repeat is requested from the practice. You should hear more about this shortly.
We are, of course, asking practices to think very carefully about “exceptions to the rule” so that vulnerable patients continue to receive the support they need.
The expected rollout date is 1 September 2019 to give practices plenty of time to communicate with their patients.
Lissel Road Bridge
Due to difficulty in demolition of the edge parapet beam in close proximity to a gas main on the west side of the bridge deck, a design modification was needed on the east side.
Additionally, complications were met due a foul sewer built-in to the reinforced concrete deck resulting in change in the methodology of working.
This has resulted in the site programme being delayed by 3 weeks.
The new completion date is Friday, 21st June 2019.
