As you are probably aware, there is a lot going on in the NHS at the moment, with a great deal of change still to come over the next couple of years. At present all GP surgeries are being asked to make changes to some of the medication that we prescribe.
This may be because the drug is no longer licensed; clinically proven that an alternative is better or carries a much higher risk of medical complications. Therefore you may find that something you have been taking for a while is either being changed to an alternative drug or no longer available on prescription – which would mean you would have to purchase it from your local pharmacy.
We aim to offer the best possible service to our patients with the highest clinical care and would ask that you support us through these difficult and changing times.
If you wish to discuss the matter please feel free to contact Lynne Marsh, Practice Manager.
