Health Promotion Afternoon

The Knares Medical Practice is holding a Health Promotion afternoon with a talk from “ACE Lifestyles”. Please feel free to come along at 1pm on Tuesday 6th June 2017 where we think this could prove to be of an interest to our patients with any health issues. Refreshments will be provided.

How to get a prescription

pills1If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. Our practice nurse/nurse practitioner can also issue prescriptions for common ailments. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation with a doctor. Please ask the receptionist.

Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication. Ask us about registering for our dispensing service if you think you qualify.

How to get a repeat prescription

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor (or nurse practitioner) will decide who can have a repeat presecription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor (nurse practitioner) to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

You can ask for a repeat prescription: by calling into the surgery when the reception is open or by post or fax. Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering. Please allow at least 48 hours before collection or 72 hours if it is something not normally on your repeat list.

We cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.
