To obtain your repeat prescription please give 48 hours notice.

This 48 hour period relates to the generation of the signed prescription and does not include the items being ready for collection at a nominated pharmacy. Please discuss with your pharmacy the time period that should be allowed for the medication to be ready for collection.

You can leave a message on the answerphone by dialling 658519 giving your computer number, name and address and the name(s) of the medication(s).

Medication Reviews

redpills1

To make sure we give the best possible care, patients who receive regular medication from their doctor should have a drug review at least once a year. The back of the prescription listing your repeat medication includes the date when your review becomes due and need to see your doctor again. The doctor will need up to date information, and to make the process as simple as possible, it is important that you have an appointment with a health care assistant at least one week before you see your GP. Please tell the receptionist you are having a drug review and will need two appointments.

The health care assistant will up date your medical record with any relevant information such as: height, weight, blood pressure etc. and can take any routine blood tests so that the results will be available by the time you see the GP.

If you suffer from Coronary heart disease, Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Hypothyroidism or many other long term conditions then you may need a blood test before your review.

We hope that this system will prove to be more convenient for you and ask you to either call into the surgery or telephone 653600 to make your appointments.
