CALL TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

The way we handle electronic prescriptions for some of our patients is changing from 27th March 2017. Click here for more information and to find out whether these changes will affect you.

*IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE*

As a result of the recent temporary closure of a local practice and the subsequent influx of nearly 600 patients registering with us we have taken the decision to temporarily close our list from the 1st September 2016 until 31st August 2017 , which in effect means we will not be registering any new patients during this time, at which point we will review our position. LIST RE-OPENS ON 1ST SEPTEMBER 2017

The only exception will be existing patients who are registered with us and a direct family member wishes to also register and who are living in the same household or within our boundary. For those patients that sit outside this criteria please got to NHS Choices: http://www.nhs.uk/pages/home.aspx where you will be able to find other practices in our locality  of which there are several.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and be assured we have taken this decision to allow us to review our current staffing resource and to identify any additional staffing support we may need; this is essentially to ensure we support our staff with the correct levels of resources so we may continue to provide continuity of care to our patients.

Pharmacy First List NNECCG

 

Pharmacy First

Pharmacy first aims to improve patient access to GP appointments by encouraging patients with certain minor ailments to use the pharmacy for treatment rather than making an appointment at the surgery.


This will relieve the pressure on current appointment schedules and allow those patients with more urgent or serious needs to see the GP sooner. The scheme covers the whole of the NHS Nottingham City area including community pharmacies and all GP practices.
 
Patients can self-refer to any NHS Nottingham City community pharmacy or referral can be made by the GP or practice staff or by any other healthcare professional.
 

What minor ailments can be treated at the pharmacy?         

Who can use Pharmacy First?

  • Patients must be registered with an NHS Nottingham City GP.
  • The scheme treats patients over three months old with no upper age limit. Children under three months should always be treated by their doctor.
  • The scheme includes all children up to 16 years old.
  • Patients should be exempt from prescription charges.
  • The patient should always be present at the consultation in the pharmacy.
  • Medicines will not be provided for the ‘store cupboard’ or ‘just in case’.
  • The pharmacist may not always provide medicines.
  • Any treatment or medicines provided will always follow the guidance laid down in the agreed protocols.
  • Pharmacists can only provide medicines that are listed in the agreed formulary under the Pharmacy First scheme.
  • Patients who are referred to their GP by the pharmacist do not automatically ‘jump the queue’. They should receive an appointment in line with the practice’s reception protocols.

 

Do I need to make an appointment  to use the scheme? 
No. It is possible to walk into any community pharmacy (chemist’s shop) and ask to join the Pharmacy First scheme. You will then be able to have a consultation with the pharmacist if necessary. Most pharmacies have consultation areas you can use to provide privacy.
 
Why do I have to bring my ill child to the pharmacy to receive treatment?
The scheme is intended for patient with minor ailments. If your child is not well enough to attend the pharmacy then it is advisable to seek advice from your surgery.
 
If the patient is not present at the pharmacy the pharmacist is unable to supply any treatment under the Pharmacy First scheme.
 
Medicines will not be provided for the store cupboard, or ‘just in case’. Only patients who present at the pharmacy with existing symptoms will be treated.
