We are now able to offer access to a Pharmacist every week day via a telephone consultation or face to face appointment and occasional Saturdays. A Pharmacist can offer many aspects of your care without the need to see a Doctor.
Rosie Darby will be available to all our patients. She is an expert on all things to do with medicine/medication. Services on offer include;
- An annual medical review whereby a patient’s drug regime is examined to establish if certain medicines are still needed and how best their care can be managed in future. The number of reviews that could be carried out has reduced considerably in the last 18 months, but the Practice is now able to reinstate them for all patients actively taking prescription medication. If patients delay a review, they may find that they may not be able to obtain repeat prescriptions until the review is carried out.
- Answer queries on medication
- Signing of some repeat prescriptions
- Organising medication after hospital discharges.
These tasks will be invaluable to the Practice as they allow GPs to concentrate on seeing more patients with complex medical problems and those who are experiencing ill health.
If you have not had a review in the last 12 months or have any concerns regarding your medicines or prescription, simply call the Surgery to be booked in for an appointment with the Pharmacist.
