Telephone Prescription Requests

No Longer Accepted

 

In the interests of patient safety and better telephone access to the surgery for appointments, from 1 May 2018, the Practice can no longer accept prescription requests by phone. The partners have decided the risk of errors are too great and the time often taken to deal with these requests causes too long a delay for patients trying to book an appointment.

 

Alternative methods to request repeat prescriptions are:-

 

  • Request repeat prescriptions online, via the Practice website – please register for online access via Reception.
  • Request repeat prescriptions by post / in person – use the right-hand side of your printed prescription, ticking the medication you require. Post it to the practice or drop it in at reception (include a stamped addressed envelope and we’ll post it out to you).
  • Get your nominated Pharmacy to request and collect your prescription for you – speak to your preferred pharmacist for information on the scheme.

 

 

Please note: Prescriptions are ready for collection from the surgery in 72 hours (3 working days).

Blood Tests

blood_tests_4A blood test is when a sample of blood is taken for testing in a laboratory. Blood tests have a wide range of uses and are one of the most common types of medical test. For example, a blood test can be used to:

  • assess your general state of health
  • confirm the presence of a bacterial or viral infection
  • see how well certain organs, such as the liver and kidneys, are functioning
A blood test usually involves the phlebotomist taking a blood sample from a blood vessel in your arm. and the usual place for a sample is the inside of the elbow or wrist, where the veins are relatively close to the surface. Blood samples from children are most commonly taken from the back of the hand. The child's hand will be anaesthetised (numbed) with a special cream before the sample is taken.

You can find out more about blood tests, their purpose and the way they are performed on the NHS Choices website.
