Appointments

A small number of online appointments are available to book. This includes onlline booking for telephone appointments.

We continue to have a very high number of patients who fail to attend appointments they have made each day so please do remember to cancel so they can be offered to other patients who may really need them . You can cancel your appointments online. 
 Online Access to records

We now offer patients limited access to their medical records. We will have further information about this on our website shortly. Please note you will need to provide photographic ID to get the required log on. Please ask reception for more information.

How You Can Reduce Medicines Waste

Sometimes patients receive medicines they don't actually use, or use only occassionally. This means that they can lose out on the intended health benefits of their prescription. That can be a major headache in more ways than one.

Not only does it mean that that their symptoms can get much worse if left untreated - the latest Department of Health report suggests this can cost the NHS many, many millions in avoidable extra treatment costs - it also means that these medicines cannot be used again and need to be incinerated.

There are a number of reasons patients do not take their medicines as prescribed including;

  • patients not believing the medicine is necessary;
  • possible side effects;
  • fitting taking or using medicines into daily routines;
  • choosing between medicines if patients’ feel they are taking too many, and;
  • cutting down or stopping medicines they have been taking for a long time.

 

Please only order the medication you need & avoid ordering early. If you have any queries over your medication please book an appointment with our practice pharmacist.
