Medication reviews

If you are on repeat medication or suffer from a chronic illness, The GPs recommend that you have a review appointment at least once a year. At this appointment, usually with the Practice Nurse, she will check your blood pressure, your height and weight, enquire about any problems, check a urine sample and may take a blood sample. We have set up a rolling review system which means that you will be sent a letter giving a date and time for your appointment.

If you are over 75 you should have this type of review at least annually, even if you are not on regular medication. You can arrange this by contacting Reception.

If you are on regular medication, you should also consider whether to have a flu jab. Any of the staff will be able to tell you if you fall into the recommended category.

Waste medications

Do not order any drugs you do not take regularly, this will help to save the NHS millions of pounds. Take any drugs that you have stopped taking; to either a community pharmacy who dispensed your medication, or the Dispensary at the Surgery.
