NHS Winter pressures key messages

18 January 2018

Our Win-Win Alliance – disabled people leading change has attended an NHS E webinar about ‘winter pressures’.

We were asked to help NHS E communicate key actions you may be able to spread across your own members and networks of NHS patients:

  • Activating additional information on your Summary Care Record (SCR) will help emergency healthcare professions treat you quicker and more effectively. Patients with LTC or complex care needs should speak to their general practice about how to activate access to additional information on their SCR.

  • Electronic repeat dispensing will free up GP appointments enabling GPs to see and treat more people. Patients who receive regular prescriptions should be encouraged to sign up to the electronic prescription service via their preferred pharmacy.
