A new continuous coughb. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)

MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCE. STAY AT HOME AND SAVE LIVES.
From 31st July 2017 we will no longer accept telephone requests for Repeat Prescriptions
Repeat prescriptions should be ordered at least 48 hours in advance. The easiest way to order your repeat prescriptions is online. Please click on the link above.They can also be ordered by sending in the tear off slip from the side of your prescription. Please tick the items you require. If you would like your prescription posting to you please remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope and allow extra time for posting. Alternatively you may come to an arrangement with your usual pharmacist to leave your request there and pick up your medication at a later date. This will usually take longer than 48 hours.
A new service has been set up to enable your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. You need to select a local pharmacy and ask them to make Kilmeny Surgery aware of your preference. This will hopefully make ordering and collecting prescriptions easier
Please do not request additional items on your slip unless this has been agreed with your doctor. Please note when your review is due. This is the date on the bottom of the tear off slip. When your medication is due near this date please make an appointment to see your usual doctor. If you have a condition where you have to have blood tests, please attend a phlebotomy clinic at least one week before your review, so the doctor has the test results
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone 01535 606415
Pharmacies in Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven offer a service called Pharmacy First that gives you more choice and easier access when you need health advice and treatment.
Your local pharmacy can give you advice and, if needed, medicines for common illnesses, so you don’t have to make an appointment with your GP.
Your pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can help with your health problems. The pharmacist may offer you a private space to talk to you about your symptoms.
If you don’t normally pay for your prescriptions, then any medicines prescribed by your pharmacist will be free.
If you do pay for your prescriptions, then the cost of the medicines should be less that the prescription charge and you get advice from your pharmacist.
Just ask your pharmacist about Pharmacy First.
