    My chemist always puts a copy in my meds delivery 

    It's just the back pages you need where you tick which items you want to order

    You don’t need the prescription anyway, I can just write out your list of medicine,
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    For patient access with my GP surgery we have to take some form of ID to them and then they will give you the access code.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    My GP required me to take in my passport, after that I received a letter in the post with my linkage keys for Patient Access.

    Hi all i noticed the other day that my GP has my wrong address so i called them and they said they would change it but normally i would have to go and show proof of my address. I live in a flat my address is my street name and flat name they just have street name i noticed because post code was different but 3 days after phoning them to change address i got my medication and it was my old address. Does it take them so many days to change it about 3 years ago i had to go for tests once a month for 3 months i never heard nothing back after they did not tell me what was wrong do u think they could have sent my letter to a different address advising on poor diet before i got anemia

    @salty1212334 You also have to take in to account how many days after your GP has approved your order for delivery, they might of approved it before you phoned. I advise you to call the chemist today and change your address with them so it doesn’t happen again.

    On that point, I signed up to Patient Access about 6 years ago. There was no option for this then, I also don’t like the NHS app, I feel PA is easier to use.

    Yes and I appreciate what you’re saying I was simply just giving my experience. I know many don’t have photo ID but that is what my surgery required and if you didn’t have it you could use your Birth Certificate along with a letter to your address. Passport just felt easier to me rather than messing looking through my documents.

    Indeed, i was just saying how it works with my GP surgery.
