Thank you for visiting us at Ship Street Surgery in Brighton. This site provides you with all of the information and guidance you need about our lovely surgery and
the medical services we provide. We are a well-established Practice providing a full
range of services and facilities for NHS patients. Our core team consists of a GP, Practice Nurse, Practice Manager and administrative staff. Other staff attached to the Surgery include a diabetes nurse, mental health workers and substance misuse nurse.
NHS Electronic Prescription Service
The practice plans to start providing the NHS electronic prescription service in October 2014. If you collect repeat prescriptions you will not have to visit your GP practice just to collect your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send the prescription electronically to the place you choose. To enjoy the benefits of this service ask our reception staff if you can ‘Nominate’ a Pharmacy.

Online Patient Services (EMIS)
The Practice is pleased to be extending its services to patients by introducing EMIS, the online Patient Access System. By registering for EMIS you will be able to order repeat prescriptions, book routine appointments and send messages to the practice. To register for a new Username & Password to access EMIS, please bring current photo ID to Reception along with the EMIS Access Application Form available on the left hand menu (copies also available at the Surgery). Note that after the 31st December 2013 you will need to have registered with EMIS in order to request repeat prescriptions as emailing the Surgery directly will not be an option.
Care Data Sharing
Certain information about you helps us to provide better care. Your medical records can now be used by the NHS to improve services offered. This information, along with your postcode and NHS number (but not your name), is sent securely to the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) and NHS England. You do have a choice about your data - if you are happy for your information to be used in this way, you don't need to do anything. Alternatively,
if you don't want to share this information, please contact the Surgery by email, phone or in person. Further information can be found at the link below.
