Heatwave

Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for the very young or very old or those with chronic disease.  Advice on how to reduce the risk either for yourself or somebody you know can be obtained from NHS Choices at www.nhs.uk/summerhealth, NHS 111 or from your local chemist.

Private Prescriptions

 

In certain circumstances it may be appropriate to prescribe your medication as an NHS script, but the prescribing policy that is applied to all our NHS prescriptions complies with guidance from the West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group and will be followed. This is because the prescribing doctor takes responsibility for monitoring your treatment.

 

If your consultant prescribes a medication that falls outside a licensed indication or is outside the local recommendations on prescribing, your consultant will need to provide you with a private prescription, which you will be able to take to any community pharmacy for dispensing.  You will have to pay a charge for the drugs on this prescription even if you are normally exempt. 

 

Please be aware that two working-days notice is needed for the practice to process NHS prescriptions.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
