Medicines Use Reviews at Stoltons Pharmacy

 

 Do you have to order medicines several times a month?  Are you unsure of how to take your medicines?

 

Have you been on a medicine a long time and wonder if you still need it?

 

Do you order repeat medicines but have not seen the Doctor for a while?

 

Do you need advice about your medicines?

 

If you can answer yes to any of these questions or have other problems with your medicines and your health, you might be ready for a Medicines Use Review.

 This is a FREE service, taking 10-20minutes, which we and the National Health Service promote to patients to encourage good and appropriate use of your medicines.

 You can book this service with your Pharmacist, or at quiet times you may be able to obtain an immediate review. There is a similar service available for new medicines prescribed to you by your doctor to ensure you obtain the maximum benefit from those medicines

  

Repeat Dispensing Service

 

You can arrange for up to 6 months of prescriptions to be managed by us, saving Dr’s appointments and your time.  You would simply call at the Pharmacy, we would make a few simple checks and you can collect your medication. Please ask about this service for further details

Some of the above services are funded by the NHS, some are privately offered as part of our wider and expanding healthcare services

 

FLU VACCINATIONS


Our Flu vaccination service is available FREE on the NHS for eligible patients, which includes those over 65 and those with certain medical conditions or risks to their health. We also now offer a non-NHS private flu vaccination service for a small fee. Available from October until March.


Your vaccination will take place in private in our consultation area, although you may choose for one person to accompany you. Usually an appointment will not be necessary, but at busy times you may need to wait until the pharmacist is available.

 

The service will not be available on Wednesdays or Saturdays or when our usual pharmacist is not present.


If you have already booked with your GP or have had a vaccination this year then it would not be appropriate for us to offer this to you.

Should you have any questions, then please speak to one of the staff who will be pleased to help you.




TRAVEL ADVICE


We re able to offer the most up to date advice on the relevant vaccinations and malaria medicines, insect repellants and essential first aid equipment for travelling abroad for business or pleasure. 


We can supply relevant medication on a Doctor's prescription but are planning to extend our services to offer medication direct from the pharmacy without needing to go to the Doctor's surgery.
