Text Message Reminders
We have installed a software package that allows us to send text messages to patients’ mobile phones. Text messages are faster and more ecologically friendly than writing to you and are often more convenient than a telephone call or message.
We will send a reminder for all routine appointments such as Asthma, Flu and Diabetic etc to patients over 16 years of age. If you wish to register for this service, please complete the consent form below and return it to reception. Find out more
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS
Following guidance received from the Health & Social Care Board we have decided to make changes to the system for ordering prescriptions.
Patients who receive items on a repeat prescription MUST order them directly from us and not from their chemist, except in exceptional circumstance.
This can be done:
When we are open
- Face to face at the reception desk
- Phoning the practice (028 9260 3111) - please avoid calling 8.30-9.30am when patients are ringing for urgent appointments.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year
- On the Repeat Prescribing Line (028 92501289)
- Online via the Practice website
You can specify ONE chemist to collect your repeat prescriptions from the surgery. If you wish to use this service, please ask reception for a consent form.
If you change your mind or wish to change the chemist you use at a later date, then you must let us know.
