Are you taking Gabapentin or Pregabalin (brand names include Lyrica, Alzain, Neurontin) ?

There will be changes that may effect you from 1st April 2019.  These changes follow a government consutlation because of concerns around possible misuse and mean that these medicines become Controlled Drugs (CDs).  The medicines themselves will not change, but this will mean that only 28 DAYS supply can be prescribed at a time.

November 2019- Appointment DNA's

During November 194 patients did not attend their appointment at the surgery.

 

If you have an appointment booked and cannot attend please call us to rearrange or cancel the appointment.  This does have a major effect on to how long patients wait to book an appointment to see a GP or a Nurse.

Many thanks
