We are now able to offer access to a Pharmacist every week day via a telephone consultation. A Pharmacist can offer many aspects of your care without the need to see a Doctor.
Audrey Ghanney and Zoheeb Saeed will be available to all patients via telephone consultations, covering 5 weekdays between them. Audrey and Zoheeb are experts on all things to do with medicine/medication. Services they can offer include;
- One of the routine consultations to suffer in the pandemic has been the 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 for a telephone consultation with the Pharmacist.
