NEW October 2022:
We will not prescribe Diazepam for patients who wish to use this for a fear of flying. We have made this decision due to the following reasons
We appreciate a fear of flying is very real and very frightening and can be debilitating. However, there are much better and effective ways of tackling the problem. We recommend you tackle your problem with a Fear of Flying Course, which is run by several airlines. These courses are far more effective than diazepam, they have none of the undesirable effects and the positive effects of the courses continue after the courses have been completed.
For safety reasons we are unable to accept prescription requests over the telephone:
If you are taking regular medication, you can order your prescriptions online via Patient Access or by emailing your Name, Date Of Birth and prescription request to email@example.com If you haven’t registered for Patient Access yet, please call the Practice so we can set this up for you.
You can also order your prescription in the following ways (however we are currently advising against coming into the surgery unless you absolutely can’t order online from home due to the global pandemic):
If you currently collect repeat prescriptions, you can sign up for the EPS service and will not have to visit your GP practice just to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send the prescription electronically to the pharmacy of your choice, saving you time.
The prescription is an electronic message so there is no paper prescription. Please speak to your local pharmacy / chemist to register with them for this service.
Please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription as once signed by the GP they are filed in reception therefore are not ready to collect before 15:00.
|Prescriptions received before 12pm on:
|Will be ready to collect after 15:00 on:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to have a consultation with a doctor or pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. They need to check that your ongoing medication is working adequately and not causing you any problems. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
