About Pharmacists

Pharmacists can provide health advice at any time.  They can offer help on everyday illnesses such as coughs and colds and they are able to answer any questions you may have about prescribed medication or medication you buy over the counter.  A pharmacist can also give advice on a range of health topics such as asthma, healthy eating or giving up smoking.

Some pharmacists do have private areas where you can talk in confidence.   You can watch this video to find out more about what a pharmacist can offer.

If you are prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, you may be able to get extra help and advice about your medicine from your local pharmacist through a new free scheme called the New Medicine Service (NMS).  You can click here  to watch a video about this service.

Annual Reviews

If you have a long-term health condition e.g. Asthma, Diabetes, Hypertension, COPD, Coronary Heart Disease etc. You will be invited into the surgery once a year for a blood test and then an appointment with the nurse to follow up.

 Not all health conditions need a blood test e.g. Asthma 

You will be invited via a text or letter around the month of your birthday each year and it is imperative you attend.  If you would like to change the time or date of your appointment, please call the surgery.

If your appointments aren’t booked and you request any medication, it can cause the doctor to reject your request in order for you to be reminded to book.

These appointments are very important for your doctor to continue to safely prescribe medication needed for your health condition.

If repeated attempts are made asking you to book, then the quantity of your medication will be reduced until such time as you attend appointments needed.

NHS Health Check

If you do not already have a diagnosed long-term health condition, you will be invited for a NHS Health Check between the ages of 40 & 74. You should receive a letter telling you that you are eligible and this is done every 5 years.  Patients with Asthma are also able to have the NHS Health Check as well as their annual review.  Should you not receive an invitation in the post, you can self-refer by contacting the surgery.

You would have a blood test first and then a follow up appointment with the Healthcare Assistant to discuss the results, take some readings and measurements e.g.  blood pressure, height, weight, pulse and discuss lifestyle, family history etc. 

This health check is to help prevent you developing any long-term medical conditions and will let you know a risk score based upon the results and answers given during the appointment.

Prescription charges

These charges apply in England only.   In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.65
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
