A Change to Repeat Prescription Ordering 
To minimise the risk of errors, we no longer accept voicemail requests for prescriptions. You can order your repeat prescription by registering with Patient Access, please ask at reception for details. You can still order by telephone from 9.00am-12noon, by returning your prescription ordering slip to the practice between 8.00am & 6.00pm Monday to Friday or through your pharmacist (ask your pharmacist for details).

 ____________________

Ordering Prescriptions Online
To order a prescription online, in the first instance all you have to do is obtain a pin number from reception at the surgery to access this, this system is accessed online.  If you cannot attend the surgery contact us and we will arrange to have this posted to you.  You will only be prescribed what you doctor has authorised on the up-to-date medical record kept by the practice.

 ____________________

Flu Clinics 
Criteria: age over 65; pregnant; chronic medical conditions including chronic respiratory, heart, kidney or liver disease, chronic neurological conditions; diabetes; immunosuppression; residents in long stay care facilities; carers; healthcare workers.

Childrens' Flu Immunisations 
Pre-school children will be offered flu immunisation through their GP Practice (children must be aged 2 or over on 1 September 2015 to be eligible). All primary school children will also be offered the vaccine this year at school.

____________________

GP Training
We are an approved GP training practice, which means that we may have a GP Registrar attached to the practice for several months at a time. GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors with at least 2 years experience of working in hospitals and who wish to specialise in general practice.

We are pleased to have Dr Alison Hunter and Dr Faye Porter working as GP Registrars in the practice from 2014-2015.
____________________

Video Consultations
From time to time individual GPs or a GP Registrar may wish to video some consultations for training and education purposes. Your consent will always be requested both before and after such videoing, and further information will be provided at the time. Your participation in these consultations is much appreciated, but entirely optional.

Patient Participation Group
If you feel that you have ideas and suggestions to put to the practice and can do so constructively then we invite you to meet with us to improve our service to you.  Interested patients should give their name to reception staff and, depending on numbers, we will be in contact at some point over the next few months.

Donate Unwanted/Unused Medicines

Inter Care - Medical Aid for Africa
We are now registered with Inter Care, a charity that recycles medicines and supplies medical aid to Africa. If you have any unwanted or unused medicines at home these can be returned to the medical practice. Intercare can accept items that have at least 15 months to their expiry and are in their original packaging in complete blister strips. They cannot accept controlled drugs (these should be returned to the dispensing pharmacy).

 Inter Care will collect the medicines from us and their team will check and sort them before they are shipped to clinics in Africa. For further information on the work of Inter Care please visit their website by clicking the link above.

"This year Inter Care has sent nearly £700,000 worth of surplus medical supplies to 125 clinics in Africa. We rely upon the kind support of family grants, donations and fundraising activities to treat people who would otherwise not have access to medical treatment. Please donate today and make this possible."

Letter of thanks from Nzama Health Centre, Malawi
