Private Prescriptions - There may be a need for the doctor to issue you with a private prescription if the service you require is not covered by the NHS. The practice can provide a dispensing service for these prescriptions.
Medication Reviews - We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.
Monitored Dosage System (Blister Pack)
A Monitored Dosage System is designed to assist persons who find it difficult to keep track of their medications and who sometimes forget to take the medication as prescribed. The system consists of a weekly set of medications, which is blister packed for different times of the day as appropriate. The patient can receive the full monthly prescription packed in four blistered cards or the medication can be dispensed weekly, according to the wishes of the doctor.
