Noticeboard

For your safety & ours, we must insist that you do not come to the surgery to make routine enquiries, please call us instead.

Anyone approaching or entering the surgery building must wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or to act as a chaperone.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment as we are not able to permit patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available.  Please, therefore, be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.

If you find yourself in a queue outside the building, please remember to observe the 2 metre distancing rule.

We would like to thank you for your continued understanding and support during these challenging times.  However, we are very sad to report that our staff have recently been receiving an increasing amount of verbal hostility, both from telephone and face-to-face encounters with patients and their families.  We operate a zero tolerance policy and will not condone abuse of our staff and partners in any form.  The Whiteparish Surgery team work very hard to provide the best service possible in, what are often, very difficult circumstances and we have been disheartened by recent events.  PLEASE BE KIND.

A repeat prescription allows you to reorder your medication a certain number of times before having to see a Doctor or a Nurse to have it reviewed. However, you still need to be monitored to ensure that the medication is still suitable for you and the Doctor or Nurse can monitor how you are getting on.

How do I know when I am due a review? 

Each medicine listed on your prescription will tell you the following;

  • The name of the medicine
  • Its strength and how to take it
  • When the medicine was last ordered and,
  • How many more times you can order it before you need to see the doctor for a review.

 

If you can see - please see GP to order more -  this is when you will need a review. One of our Dispensers will sit with you when you come to collect your medication and ask you some brief questions about your medication and your management of them. This will then be passed on to your Doctor or Nurse who can reauthorise your medications, or who will contact should they feel it necessary.

If your review date has expired, a dispenser will tell you how to obtain a further prescription. This may involve making an appointment. If you need your medication before that appointment please tell the dispenser and they will organise what to do next. 

We have a community Pharmacist who is available to discuss your medication queries or undertake medication reviews on a Thursday morning.
