Changes to the way you order and collect repeat prescriptions

From Friday 12th July 2019 you will no longer be able to order your repeat medication on the prescription telephone line. When prescriptions are requested over the phone, mistakes are more likely due to either confusion with drug name pronunciation, or errors made when interpreting the verbal request.  Further information can be found in the Spring Newsletter.

 

Non-NHS Serviceshealth_clipboard

A number of medical examinations, reports, insurance forms and certificates are not available on the NHS, but may be provided by the GPs privately, for a fee. These may be requested via the Reception staff and you will be notified of the relevant charge. While the GP’s endeavour to complete requests within 10 working days, core medical work must take priority.

Although some travel vaccinations are available on the NHS, many are not. Patients travelling abroad are advised to complete a travel form (available here and from reception) and make a travel advice appointment, so that the nurses can advise you of any NHS or non-NHS vaccinations you might need. You will need to return the completed travel form at least 2 days prior to your appointment to give the nurse the opportunity to decide which vaccines you need prior to your appointment. Both types of vaccination are available, although there will be a charge for non-NHS vaccinations.
