Noticeboard

We have a MESH pharmacist working for us who will be contacting patients to arrange a Home Visit to do a Medication Review. She will not ask for your address as she has all your information to hand. If anyone rings you and asks for your address please contact the surgery immediately.

Important notice – From July 2018 we are now recording all telephone calls for quality monitoring, training, compliance and security purposes in accordance with GDPR regulations.  If you have any questions please refer to our Recording telephone calls policy on the website.

General Data Protection Regulations

On Friday 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force. This regulation ensures that the practice will have processes in place which ensure that all information held about patients and staff is secure. For further information please see the practice Privacy Notice accessible on the right hand side of this page.

thepillRepeat Dispensing

 

We are now encouraging repeat dispensing for patients taking three or less regular medications. As long as your treatment is likely to stay the same for a year it allows us to issue you a years worth of prescriptions at once. It has several advantages:




    • You will know when your review is due when your pick up the last prescription.

 


    • You will not have to request your medications from the surgery 48 hrs before you can take it to the pharmacist. This is quicker and more convenient for you.

 


    • Your prescriptions will be with the pharmacist and ready to collect when you run out.



 

 

Medication Reviews

 

Any of our patients on repeat prescriptions will be asked on an annual basis to have their medications reviewed. This may be possible on the phone or may need to be in person involving blood tests and blood pressure checks prior to seeing the Doctor. You will be reminded of this on your prescriptions and advised what will be needed. Please look out for these and note the reivew date on your prescriptions.
