URGENT PATIENT UPDATE - PRACTICE CLOSURE
Due to adverse weather conditions, School House Surgery has been forced to close today for the afternoon (Tuesday 27th February 2018). All patient services have therefore been re-directed to our branch site - Church Surgery. We apologise for any inconvenience.
FREE FLU VACCINATION 2017/18
REMINDER TO ALL PATIENTS OVER 65 YEARS OR IN A RISK GROUP - IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR FREE INFLUENZA VACCINATION (FLU JAB) PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT.
"On-Line requests" - Please come into the surgery with Photo ID to open an account.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways. Please use the tear off strip on the computerised prescription, carefully tick the items required and either drop it in to the surgery or post it to us. If you want us to post it back to you please remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Alternatively you can arrange with your Pharmacist to organise your repeat prescription for you.
Please note we are unable to accept requests for medication over the telephone.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
The practice is due to go 'live' with EPS in September 15. Please read the attached patient information and if you would like to nominate a preferred pharmacy please contact them directly to arrange this.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow two full working days , excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
