Noticeboard

We are having to make some significant changes to the way repeat prescriptions are ordered. These changes are for safety reasons.  Please click here to further details

2017-18 seasonal flu vaccinations.  

It is that time of year again when we look to provide the seasonal flu vaccination to all eligible patients.  We aim to provide the maximum service available over 3 weekends in September and October and these clinics are now open for patients to make there appointments.  Please contact reception to make your appointment

Patients aged 65 and over and those in clinical 'at risk' groups are eligible including children in the 'at risk' groups.  Please see the following leaflet for further guidance.

2017-18 Flu Vaccination information

Attending Appointments

Appointment availability is something we monitor regularly and is always an area of interest to patients and we would like to thank all of our patients who turn up for their appointments on time. To help patients remember appointments, we offer an sms reminder service - please ask at reception for details 

We have previously agreed with the patient participation group that minimising the number of appointments lost through patients who 'did not attend' (DNA) prebooked appointments is a priority.   'DNA' appointments are expensive and effectively lost instead of being offered to someone else with a more urgent problem.  By letting us know in good time that appointments are no longer required helps us to: offer these to someone else; improve access to the GPs and nurses, and helps to reduce appointment waiting time.

Please be courteous to our staff and to your fellow patients and let us know in advance if you no longer need your prebooked appointment.  Please help us to help ALL of our patients.  Thank you

Appointments outside of normal working hours

Particularly helpful to working patients, your GPs provide a limited number of appointments outside of normal opening hours. However, we prefer not to disappoint so it's important to stress that this time is for pre-booked appointments only. We are not open for normal service at these times. Although available to all, we would respectfully encourage our non-working patients to avoid these times where possible.  Our extended surgery hours are held on Saturday mornings.

Repeat Prescriptions

pills_thermometerThere a number of options available to order your repeat prescriptions:

- Through the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by registering with the practice, you may view your own medication and order on-line at

https://systmonline.tpp-uk.com

- Tick the appropriate medication on your computer slip, hand it in or send it to the practice

- We can no longer accept telephone ordering of prescriptions.

The local pharmacies provide a free delivery service to those who need it although we understand some require up to 4 days notice - please ask your pharmacist.

Please ensure you allow 48 hours for regular repeated prescriptions to be available for collection but please note that these can only be collected Monday - Friday. The collection service is not available on those occasions we open on a Saturday.

If you require a regular supply of medication it may be cheaper to purchase a pre-payment certificate. Details are available through our receptionists, your pharmacist or Lincolnshire NHS (the address is on your medical card).

Why not sign up for the Electronic Prescription Service - you repeat prescription can then be sent straight form the doctor directly tot he pharmacy of your choice-  this saves you the need for coming in to the surgery to collect it.  Ask at recpetion for details, or call in to your preferred pharmacy and they can sign you up too.

 

Controlled Drug Prescriptions

 

If you are being prescribed controlled drugs, we have a system in place for the collection of repeat prescriptions. For safety reasons, we will require signed authorisation from you if someone else is collecting the prescription on your behalf and evidence of identity from the person collecting the prescription.
