Important changes to ordering your prescriptions

In order to make our prescription service safer, and after careful consideration, our GPs have made the decision that it is in our patient’s best interest and for safe prescribing of medications that we will no longer take medication requests over the telephone, this includes the removal of our repeat ordering telephone message service as of the 15th April.

Between April and September we get lots of days with a cold wind or breeze and a clear or lightly clouded sky. This can lead to “unexpected” sun burn. Be aware that precautions are needed every day when you are to be outside between 11am and 3pm. Our weather changes rapidly and we need to be ready with sun protection as rain protection. Be prepared. Do not depend upon the SPF in moisturisers or make-up as the application will be too thin and the SPF too low.
