ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Patients,

As we move into the next phase of the COVID19 pandemic we all would like
say a huge thank you to our patients for your help and understanding
this year.

Throughout the Lockdown we have remained open and available to look
after you although you will probably be aware that we have been trying
to provide as much care as possible by telephone / video consultation to
reduce the risk of infection. Some routine proceedures were temporarily
put off but we are now working through the back log.

However, some changes need to stay as we know the COVID19 virus contues
to circulate and cause serious illness. We will continue to provide care
by telephone / video consultation wherever possible. Throughout the
pandemic we have seen patients face to face where clinically necessary
and this will contuine. We will continue to protect each other by
patients and staff wearing masks / face coverings for consultations and
by using social distancing and restricting the number of people in the
surgery building. We will continue to do everything we can to make sure
that coming to the surgery does not put you at increased risk of
catching COVID19.

The single most helpful thing that you, our patients, have done is that
you have heeded the advice about preventing the spread of the virus and
Milton has not been overwhelmed by the pandemic.

Although 111 remains in charge of advising and treating people who may
have COVID19 please remember that we are still here to look after you
for other illnesses.

The Milton Surgery Team

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be requested by returning the repeat prescription slip which accompanies each prescription. These can be posted or faxed to the surgery; or you can put the slip through the letter box at the surgery or you can come to the surgery in person.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a registration form and show identification (list above) at the surgery prior to using the service.

The prescription will usually be ready for collection two working days later.

We do not accept routine medication requests over the telephone.

Dispensing Medication

If you live more than a mile (1.6 kilometres) from the nearest chemist you are allowed to collect your medication directly from the surgery rather than having to take a prescription to a chemist. If you would like to do this, please ask at reception.

Prescriptions Advice

Our Dispenser, Shirley Earl, is available to discuss your prescriptions on 01223 519053 every weekday between 08:00 and 12:00.

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 these 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.
