‘CALL FIRST’ APPOINTMENT SYSTEM


How to book an appointment with your doctor from Mon 6th NOVEMBER 2017


From Monday 6th November, we will be improving our appointments system and how you book an appointment to see your GP.

Repeat Prescriptions

In order to free telephone lines for more urgent calls and to improve efficiency for all our patients, we regret requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone.

'Only Order What You Need' Campaign

The Doctors are running a campaign asking patients to only order the medication that they need.

Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS across the UK over £300 MILLION every year!

£300 million could pay for:

  • 80,906 MORE hip replacements!
  • 101,351 MORE knee replacements!
  • 19,799 MORE drug treatment courses for breast cancer!
  • 11,778 MORE community nurses!
  • 300,000 MORE drug treatment courses for Alzheimer's!

Winsley Dispensary

We are a Dispensing Practice with our dispensary based at Winsley.  Dispensing doctors are GPs who are allowed to both prescribe and dispense prescription-only medicines to certain patients.  Community Pharmacies (Chemists) are often not financially viable in rural areas, which is why some GPs have been allowed to dispense medicines themselves.  The system is tightly controlled and we are only allowed to dispense for registered patients who live more than 1 mile/1.6km from a Community Pharmacy (as the crow flies).  If you are not sure whether you are eligible for dispensing, just ask at reception.

Your prescription or medication will be available within two working days unless suppliers are short of stock.  If you are collecting medication or prescriptions for others or collecting certain medicines, the receptionists may ask for proof of identity. Where prescription payment exemption applies, proof of this and completion of the back of the prescription will be required.

You can collect medication from 0830 to 1300 and 1400 to 1800, Monday to Friday.  However you may be eligible for our free delivery service for dispensing medications (excluding refrigerated items and controlled drugs).  This service is for patients who have severe difficulty getting to the dispensary to collect their medicines.  Please ask at Winsley reception for more details.

If you need medication urgently or need your medicines early due to holidays please speak to a receptionist so that she can process your request appropriately.

The dispensary is able to offer a service of providing weekly medication compliance trays (Nomads), or dosettes as they commonly referred to. These are for patients who have difficulty in remembering to take their medication. Please speak to the dispensary for further information.

Please note we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone.

Yellow card scheme lastest APP

It’s a system borne from one of the biggest healthcare scandals of our time to protect public health.

Fifty years on from its inception, the Yellow Card Scheme is moving into the digital age through a free-access mobile app that was launched today (14 July) by Life Sciences Minister, Mr George Freeman MP.

The Yellow Card Scheme was introduced by Sir Derrick Dunlop, Chair of the Committee on the Safety of Drugs, in the wake of the Thalidomide disaster in 1964. The aim was to monitor the safety of UK medicines and act as an early warning system to identify potential side-effects and adverse reactions.
