DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN NOW SELF REFER TO PHYSIOTHERAPY WITHOUT SEEING YOUR GP?
A physiotherapist can advise and treat problems with your back, neck or any muscle, bone or joint. Physiotherapy is provided from 20 different clinics across the city and evening appointments are offered by some clinics.
To arrange to see a physiotherapist call 0121 466 6540, Monday to Friday 8 am - 4 pm
Patients on lon-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
By Fax - to 0121 465 8242
By Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
Online - follow the link at the top of this page and carry out a simple registration.
Where possible we would ask that you use counterfoil issued with the repeat as this reduces the risk of errors. For the same reason we do not accept requests by telephone unless in exceptional circumstances.
Please always bear in mind that prescriptions are subject to 2 working days notice so wherever possible try to order early enough so that you don't run out.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a 12 month Pre Paid Certificate.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
The national Antibiotic Guardian campaign aims to raise awareness on how to use antibiotics in a responsible way that will help keep them effective for the future. We are encouraging our patients to take part by watching the Antibiotic Guardian video, choosing a pledge and becoming an Antibiotic Guardian at www.antibioticguardian.com.
Did you know?
· It is estimated that at least 5,000 deaths are caused every year in England because antibiotics no longer work for some infections.
· These antibiotic ‘resistant’ infections don’t just infect you; they can spread to other people in close contact with you.
· It is important we use our existing antibiotics wisely and make sure these lifesaving medicines continue to stay effective for ourselves, our children and grandchildren.
· Without urgent action from all of us, common infections, minor injuries and routine operations will become much riskier.
· Antibiotics should only be taken when prescribed by a health professional.
Colds and most coughs, sinusitis, otitis media (earache) and sore throats often get better without antibiotics. Your GP may not prescribe antibiotics for these conditions but your local pharmacy can help provide self-care advice and suitable over the counter medicines to treat your symptoms.
