ENQUIRIES AND RESULTS
Blood and urine tests are sent to the hospital for processing. When the results are returned to us they are checked by the doctors and you will be advised if any of your results are unusual in any way. If you have not heard from us and would like to know the results of your test, please leave it about 2 weeks before you contact us. This ensures the results will have been returned and checked. Our reception staff are only able to give out results to the patient concerned, and after they have been checked by the Doctor. Please phone after 3pm for your results.
If you are prescribed regular medication, your Doctor may sanction a repeat facility. This enables you to obtain further prescriptions by returning the prescription counterfoil to Reception, either into the box on the counter or by post. Each item you require must be marked with a tick in the box next to the drug on the counterfoil. If nothing is marked we assume nothing is required. If you are on regular medication that is not listed on the counterfoil, you may need to discuss this with a doctor. A telephone appointment may suffice for this.
Please allow at least two working days for the processing of your request. Prescriptions can then be collected after 3pm. If you live more than 1 mile from the nearest chemist we are able to dispense your prescription in the surgery within 3 working days – please ask for more information about this. If you do not live more than 1 mile from a chemist you can either collect your prescription from the practice or arrange for your prescription to be collected by a pharmacy, so that you can pick up your medication from them. We normally issue sufficient medication for at least a month, so we may query an early request for another prescription.
Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered on line through our website using the secure SystmOne online facility. You first need to obtain a Username and Password from Reception and will need to show photo ID.
After discussion with a doctor and by appointment, minor operations can be performed at the surgery.
