Questions about your Prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

If you would like to speak to someone at the GP Practice about your prescription please phone our Pharmacist after 10am Tuesday – Thursday on 01257 442600.

Medication Reviews

If you have a repeat prescription, we will ask you to come in once a year for a review. Please make sure you book a routine appointment when we ask you to come in for your review.

About Pharmacists

Pharmacists are experts in medicines. They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.

We work closely with local pharmacists to support you with certain minor health conditions. It may be more appropriate for you to have your NHS consultation with a pharmacist instead of the GP Practice. You can choose a pharmacy convenient to you and we will arrange this for you.

Many pharmacies are open until late and at the weekends. You do not need an appointment.

Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.

Disposing of Old Medicines

If your medicine is out of date, unwanted, or some of it is left over after you have stopped taking it, do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet. Instead, take it to your pharmacy to be disposed of safely.
