PRACTICE PHARMACIST

Kemi Daniels has been with us now for a few months and she works every Thursday. She is very skilled at medication reviews and can answer all types of questions on prescribing and prescriptions.

If the receptionists suggests you see Kemi for a medication review and lifestyle advice, then this is because the practice would like you to do so. She supports us in our prescribing and also helps with audit work and monitoring of prescribing trends.

Practice Pharmacists have now been utilised in many practices nationally over the last few years and are proving to be a very useful resource to practices. You are still free to see the GP for your medication review should you wish, just let the receptionist know.

Appointments

pen_on_diaryTo book an appointment please call the surgery on 01924 220256 after 08:00 on the day you wish to be seen. Some morning and afternoon appointments are pre-bookable in advance.

Appointments are for one person and only usually to discuss two problems. If you feel you need more time then please book a double appointment.

Emergency cases will be seen on the same day however you may have to wait in the surgery and you may not be able to see the doctor of your choice.

Telephone Consultations

If you feel your problem could be dealt with over the telephone rather than by a visit to the surgery please call after 08:00 and inform reception. A doctor or nurse will then call you back.

Examples of subjects suitable for telephone consultations include minor ailments, medication requests outside of your normal repeats or follow up consultations for long-term problems.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend your appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order that the slot can be given to someone else. Patients who repeatedly fail to attend without cancelling will be invited to the surgery to discuss the problem.
