MAY BANK HOLIDAY


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRACTICE AND DISPENSARY WILL BE CLOSED ON BOTH MONDAY 7 AND MONDAY 28 MAY 2018 AS THESE ARE BANK HOLIDAYS.


IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN AND YOUR ISSUE CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT DAY THAT WE ARE OPEN, PLEASE CONTACT 111 AND THEY WILL SIGNPOST YOU TO THE MOST APPROPRIATE SERVICE.


IF YOU ARE IN NEED OF EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE - CRUSHING CHEST PAINS, OR UNEXPECTED SHORTNESS OF BREATH FOR INSTANCE - DIAL 999 IMMEDIATELY


CHANGES TO REQUESTS FOR REPEAT MEDICATIONS - South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SLCCG) have instructed all Community Pharmacies that they may no longer accept Repeat Medication Requests from patients for delivery to Beechfield Medical Centre - the onus is now on patients to deliver their requests directly to us, or to register online with us and make their requests that way.  Arrangements have been made for those patients who consider themselves to be "vulnerable" to continue to service their requests through Community Pharmacies on application to the pharmacy.  Please note that if you are unable to register for online requests, then the simplest option will be to hand deliver your request outside of normal working hours, and post it in the letterbox for that purpose just to the left of the main entrance to the surgery building.  


Please note that this change has not been instigated or driven by the Practice, but we have no choice but to comply with the instructions of the SLCCG in this matter.


See Latest News Section for details of recent in house surveys of our services, and for details of our Training Closures in 2018.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow 2 WORKING days to process your repeat prescription from the time that we receive it, or 3 WORKING days when the week includes a bank holiday.

Please use the repeat prescription form for ordering medication either by posting it to the surgery or bringing it in. If you require the prescription to be posted to you please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration prior to using this service, and this can be done at the practice during normal opening hours.

If you have a repeat prescription query, please contact the practice on 01775 724088 and select option 3 between 0900-1700 only.

Dispensing

If you live more than one mile (in a straight line) from a dispensing chemist you can request that your prescriptions be dispensed at the surgery.

The dispensary is open between 08:00 and 18:30 Monday to Friday, but closed from 1300-1400 every Thursday for training. If medicines are required urgently when the dispensary is closed patients should contact the Out of Hours Service on 111 for further advice and guidance.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review their regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions as this process is an essential element of your ongoing care by the Practice.
