MEDICINE WASTE CAMPAIGN 2019 AND HOW IT WILL AFFECT YOU

Medicines over-ordering and drug wastage has been identified as a serious and growing problem within the NHS.  It is estimated that as much as three hundred million is wasted every year on unused or partially used medication.  We are asking all our patients to look at the medications they order regularly and ask that they only order the medications that are needed.  In an attempt to reduce the amount of waste prescription medications and inline with other Leicestershire practices and other areas in the UK, we will no longer be accepting third party requests for medication.  This means that all repeat requests must be ordered by the patient themselves as only they know exactly what they require.

The date we have nominated for our new process to start is: Tuesday 1st January 2019

EXPRESS CONSENT TO SHARE YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS

Is it ok if we share important health information about you with other health professionals,  if they need it to look after you?

Most of our patients already have a summary care record, where medications and allergies can be viewed, if you choose to add additional information to this such as relevant problems,   communication needs etc, this will further increase the quality of your care - Quicker access, diagnosis and treatment.

If the answer is yes - please contact the reception who can update your medical record.

Travel Information

To help us offer the appropriate advice, please print and complete the 'Travel Form' at the bottom of this page and hand it in to the Surgery. You can also collect a travel form from reception. This form requires information on which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting in order to determine what vaccinations are required.  There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below.


Once you have handed in your completed form the Nurses will then assess it and if you require any vaccinations or advise relating to foreign travel you will be contacted to arrange appointment with the practice nurse. 

It is important to attend your appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel. This allows the vaccines an appropriate amount of time to work and also allows us time to order in the vaccines if need be.

Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge.  This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
