Repeat Prescriptions

You can obtain your repeat prescription at 24 hours’ notice, by posting the slip in the repeat prescription box, although requests placed on a Friday will not be ready for collection until the following Monday. Alternatively, you can post your request slip to the Surgery, together with a stamped addressed envelope, and it
will be returned to you. Please note that requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone by reception staff, this is to ensure patient safety.


If you are not on routine repeat for a medication you will be asked to make an appointment with a doctor.

 

The maximum repeat medication that can be issued is 2 months supply, if you require more than the maximum for long term travel abroad, then you must make alternative arrangements for this further supply, i.e. buying this medication abroad.

Adult Immunisation

For those whose resistance is lowered because of conditions such as asthma and chronic bronchitis, or heart trouble and diabetes, influenza can be a life threatening disease. Each winter we offer influenza vaccinations to any patients who may be at risk. These vaccinations are also offered to anyone who is aged 65 and over.

Travel Vaccinations

If you are travelling abroad, especially outside Europe, you may need extra vaccinations and will need an appointment with the Practice Sister.  Please contact the Surgery at least six weeks prior to travelling, as some vaccinations need to be given a few weeks before the date of travel. You may be required to collect a prescription prior to attending for the vaccination.

 

Child Immunisation

It is important that all children and babies are immunised.  Illnesses such as diphtheria, tetanus, and polio, because of recent immunisation policies, are thankfully rare, but if contracted can be crippling, or even fatal. Whooping cough (pertussis) is a most distressing illness, and can lead to permanent lung damage.  We strongly recommend that all babies have this vaccination, along with their other baby injections.  If you have any worries or queries about any aspects of your child’s immunisation, please feel free to discuss them with your doctor, the Practice Sister, or the Health Visitor.

Internal Examinations (including smears)

During your care the Doctor or Practice Sister will need to examine you in order to provide you with the best possible care. Occasionally this may involve an examination of intimate areas. We understand that this can be stressful and embarrassing. If this sort of examination is necessary:

  • we will explain what the examination will involve, including whether you can expect it to be painful or uncomfortable.
  • we will obtain your permission before carrying out such an examination.
  • at all times, we will respect your privacy during the examination and whilst undressing and dressing.
  • you will be offered a chaperone during the examination.
  • The doctor and nursing staff will be happy to discuss any concerns you have about this.
