***Notice Regarding Antibiotic Prescribing***
We would like to inform you that GP’s in the practice do not prescribe antibiotics for infections that usually get better on their own such as colds and flu’s. We recommend you visit your local pharmacy for advice if you suffer from these conditions.
We are a “Benzo-Free” Practice.
We DO NOT prescribe Benzodiazepines routinely.
We have an active withdrawal programme in place and plan to reduce and stop usage by mid 2017.
We changed our ordering protocols back on 29th February 2016.
We no longer take telephone message requests for repeat medications.
Preferred methods include: fax, online, by post in writing or by using your right hand side repeat slip, in person or text your request to the usual number.
We do have exceptions for those that are unable to use any of the above methods, this can be discussed at any time with our prescription lead.
Thank you for your cooperation,
