Prescription and Medication Queries
If you live more than one mile from the nearest pharmacy, we can dispense your medicines so you don’t need to go to a pharmacy. Medication can be collected from any of the surgeries within the practice. Please allow two full working days for the prescription to be ready.
If you live within a mile of a pharmacy we are unable to dispense your medication. This is a condition of our regulation and one over which we have no control. We will issue your prescription but it is then your responsibility to arrange the supply of your medication with your pharmacy.
When you are issued with medication from the dispensary, you will receive a patient information leaflet about each of the drugs you have received. Please read the leaflet carefully. Each package or container will be labelled with dosage instructions from the doctor. If you do not understand the instructions or you require further information, please discuss with the dispenser.
Our doctors periodically review repeat medications, and may request that you attend an appointment to ensure that all prescribing is safely monitored.
Dr David Lightwing, who has worked in the practice for 19 years, has now retired and we wish him well in the future. We are also pleased to announce that Dr Tim Longmore has now taken on the role of Senior Partner for the practice.
In addition to overseeing prescription management systems, Andy will be providing appointments for medication reviews and will also be available to answer any medicines related queries by telephone.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice, the required disclosure is shown within this article.
The surgery will be open on alternate Monday evenings (until 8pm) from January 2017, starting on Monday 16th January.
