GP Winter Pressures Extended Opening Hours Clinics

We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or Nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP Practices across the region offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. The GP extended opening hours service operates between 6.00 pm - 8.00 pm on weekdays and 8.00 am-1.00 pm on weekends and allows patients to be seen within a network of GP Practices at a convenient time and location, depending on availability.

Our practice is taking part in an important national project about Diabetes care and treatment in the NHS. The project is called the National Diabetes Audit (NDA.

To take part we will be sharing information about your diabetes care and treatment with the NDA, the type of information, and how it is shared, is controlled by law and enforced by strict rules of confidentiality and security.  For further infrmation about how your information is used please see the NDA patient information leaflet.

Taking part in the NDA shows that this GP practice is committed to improving care for people with Diabetes.

If you do not want your information to be used, please inform the receptionist, your GP or Nurse. This will not affect your care. More information is available - please ask a member of staff for a patient information leaflet.

PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSE FOR YOUR HEALTH CHECK

What is an NHS Health Check?

The NHS Health Check is a health check-up for adults in England aged 40-74. It's designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. As we get older, we have a higher risk of developing one of these conditions. An NHS Health Check helps find ways to lower this risk.

Patient Participation Group

We are actively seeking more people to join our on line group if you are interested please email  westbury.medicalcentre@nhs.net or phone 01743 884727 and please email us with any thoughts/ suggestions that you would like us to consider

 

Repeat Prescriptions

Requests for repeat drugs or prescriptions must be made in writing or by fax or email. Alternatively you can register at the surgery for our online services, we need proof of ID a passport/driving licence and proof of address and then you can order on line or order via the link at the top of this page.

If a prescription is to be sent back to you or to a chemist by post then please ensure we have  a stamped addressed envelope, or if you require it to be faxed to a chemist of your choice we will also need a stamped addressed envelope supplying first.

How To Obtain Medicines Urgently

Urgent medications prescribed by the doctor for dispensing patients are done before you leave the practice or a prescription is given to patient to take to a chemist if we don't have it in stock. If you are non dispensing a prescription will be given to you to take to the chemist.

Collection

Some drugs have to be specially ordered, so please allow 2 working days for preparation. They will then be available in the reception area  at the medical centre during opening hours. All drugs have to be signed for and payment made at the time of collection. We do not take card payments.

We offer a drug drop off service to Ford village hall on Thursdays at approximately 12:45, although this service is only available to those patients who are over retirement age or under 16 (i.e. patients who are exempt from payment).

Dispensing

We provide medicines and drugs for those of our patients who live more than a mile from a chemist, prescribed by our doctors only. The dispensary at the medical centre is always open during surgery and clinic times.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
