Why not start the New Year with the staff and patients of Ladybarn Group Practice in a walk around Ladybarn Park

The next walk is on Thursday 5th April 2018 and then weekly.  Please meet at Ladybarn Group Practice reception at 12.45 p.m.

Walking with us will also be members of BUZZ who can talk about health and wellbeing and services that are available



If patients do not attend their appointments and do not cancel this means others wait longer for appointments.

Please help us to reduce our wasted appointments and cancel so that others patients may use it.

Repeat Prescriptions

inhaler2.jpgSome patients may need medication on a long-term basis. Your GP will decide with you which medicines you need to take long-term. These medicines can be issued for a set period, usually on a one or two month prescription, but the GP will vary this review date for each patient. Certain medicines cannot be given on long-term prescriptions, e.g antidepressants.

If your medicines are changed, the new medication may not be included on your repeat list until the GP has confirmed that the new medication is suitable for you.

Oral contraception pills are not given out on repeat prescription. You will be issued a 3 or 6 month supply and you will need to see your GP or nurse for a blood pressure and pill check with each prescription.

Certain drugs require regular monitoring and blood tests. For example, patients on lithium will require lithium, kidney and thyroid blood tests. If you have not had the necessary blood tests taken, you may not be issued with your repeat prescription.

Order repeat prescriptions via your local pharmacy

Ordering repeat prescriptions can be a pain and can take up a lot of your time. If you regularly order repeat prescriptions from your GP, your local pharmacy can save you time and trouble.

You can order your prescription from the practice and then collect your medicines directly from the pharmacy of your choice (ask your local pharmacist how to register for this service). You won't have to wait for your medicines to be dispensed.

If your medications change you must let your pharmacy know.
