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

ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS: calendar

Routine appointments can be booked through Reception or via our website (Please note that you will need to register at reception for our online services).

You can pre-book appointments with GP's and nurses up to 6 weeks in advance. GP's can offer you either face-to-face appointments or telephone consultations. Face-to-face appointments are allocated a 10 minute time slot, if you think that you will need longer than this please book more than one appointment.

TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS: 

Telephone Consultations are offered when a GP can deal with your problem over the telephone, saving you a visit to the surgery. A 5 minute time slot is allocated for a Telephone Consultation.

URGENT APPOINTMENTS:

There is an On-Call doctor available daily to offer advice over the telephone or see you if the problem is urgent for that day. You will be asked if it is a medical emergency for the same day and will be expected to take the next available appointment.

Please also note that if you suspect you have a URINARY TRACT INFECTION (WATER INFECTION) please ask at reception for a form (or download via the link below) and sample bottle - an appointment with the nurse or GP is not necessary. Please hand in your sample before 11.30am, your sample will be tested and we will inform you of the outcome as soon as possible.
