During this time if you have any other medical needs please contact the surgery and you will be offered a telephone consultation with a clinician and your health needs will be assessed – this may lead to a face to face consultation if needed.

Access to the surgery building will be restricted to those who have been invited to attend for an appointment. Only the patient with the appointment will be allowed into the building. Only one adult will be allowed to accompany a child with an appointment.

You can access the surgery by telephone, email ( newland.surgery@nhs.net for non urgent problems) or online (if you have registered).

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Read more about EPS on the NHS website.

PRACTICE PHARMACIST

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

If the receptionists suggests you see Sara 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.
