Wye Surgery closed its fax line 3rd October
Last year the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced that the NHS will phase out all fax machines by 31 March 2020 and must use secure email instead to improve patient safety and cyber security. Accordingly, the Wye Surgery fax line will close on the 3rd October 2019. After this date patients will only be able to send their repeat prescription requests either via Patient Access online, or by email or by post or hand to the Surgery. As recently as 2017 the NHS was the world's largest buyer of fax machines.
