Coronavirus Money Worries

 

Coronavirus is highly infectious; it can be spread by droplet and mist inhalation. This means you can pick it up by simply talking to someone.

***THE 6 FOOT RULE IS A MINIMUM***

There is a very good self help guide for Coronavirus available on the NHSinform website please read this now, even if you are well:

Coronavirus is highly infectious, there is no cure and unless its progress is halted it will overwhelm the NHS.

In order to protect the most vulnerable in our community we are all responsible for maintaining social distance.

***********Coronavirus or Covid-19 Information***********

GP Appointments

Patients are advised to telephone at the duty team times (8.30 - 9am & 1.30 - 2pm) to speak with our duty team for all GP appointments.

To maximise our valuable and limited resources, it is essential that patients cancel any appointments (doctor/nurse) that they no longer require or are unable to attend

 

Repeat Prescriptions multicolour_pills

With the current situation with Coronavirus/Covid-19 we are still processing prescriptions the same. There is a letter box at the side of the building for prescriptions to be posted through, if you do not have a repeat form please write your full name, date of birth, medication required and also your preferred chemist. Please still allow 48 hours for prescriptions to go to the pharmacy.

All medication requests are processed within 2 working days (48 hours from when the surgery receives the reorder form/ online request) For efficiency, prescriptions are routinely sent directly to the preferred chemist.

The online service is available 24/7: enabling you to reorder your repeat medication at any time of day.

We DO NOT accept requests over the telephone.

If you fail to order your medication on time, you will be instructed to attend the surgery to complete an urgent request form. Failing to order medication in advance puts an unnecessary additional strain on our limited clinical time and resources.

Repeat prescription requests will only be accepted in the following ways:

  • Placing reorder forms in the prescription box at reception or via the letterbox located at the right hand side door before reaching the main entrance.
  • Posting your reorder form to the practice and enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope
  • Ordering online via our online service ( you need to be signed up for this )  

Please allow extra working day/s to the above when the surgery is closed for public holidays. If you are ordering early due to holidays, please add a note to your reorder form.

The chemist has a duty to return your reorder form, this is your property and contains info/follow up advice from the GP.

 

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor at least once a year to review their regular medication, and notification of this will appear on your repeat reorder slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delay to issuing of further medication.

If you have been asked to speak to the GP over the telephone about your medication you can call the clinical team using (option 2) Monday to Friday between 9.00am-1.30pm.

The clinical team will either action this for you and send the prescription to your preferred chemist or contact you to discuss.

Patients are responsible for ordering all medication on time and allowing 48 hours for it to be processed.

We DO NOT accept repeat medication requests over the telephone.
