REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

 

For routine repeat prescriptions, you may re-order your medicines a week in advance of requiring them, but please allow a minimum of 48 hours.

 

Patients on long-term medication will be asked to attend for regular check ups.

 

All requests for repeat medication must be in writing, with the only exception of housebound patients, who should telephone after 10.30am for their repeat medication. Telephone requests are not accepted to avoid possible errors. Please do not embarrass staff by asking them to take a repeat prescription over the telephone as they are not allowed to do so. If you would like your prescription posted to you, please include a stamped, addressed envelope.

 

The Prescription Administrator can also deal with concerns you have about your medication.

 

N.B. Our on-site Pharmacy, Day Lewis, will be happy to deliver to housebound patients who live within the locality. Similarly, Mr Shah of IS Pharmacy at Rosehill is happy to provide home delivery for the housebound within his catchment area.

 

 

TEST RESULTS

 

Results may be requested over the phone (e.g. Blood, Urine, X-ray, Ultrasound) preferably between 12:00pm and 2:00pm. Information is available from the Receptionists.

 

If the Doctor or Nurse feel that the results require further attention or intervention, you will be contacted by telephone. Alternatively, a letter will be sent to you requesting a follow up appointment .

 

 

TRAVEL VACCINES

 

We are happy to give travel vaccines and advice. You should allow at least 6 weeks before travel for vaccines to become fully effective. Please remember:

  • Seek advice from the Nurse.

  • You may not be able to have all the vaccines at once, so allow sufficient time.

There may be a fee for some vaccinations so please ask the Nurse or a Receptionist for details.

Sickness certificate

 

You do not require a sick note for the first 7 days of your illness. A self-certification form, available from your employer, is sufficient for this purpose. Alternatively, you may obtain a DSS self-certificate (SC2) from the Receptionists. If your employer insists that a sick note is issued by your Doctor, you may then need a private certificate for which a fee is charged.
