SELF CARE

Empowering people with the confidence and information to look after themselves when they can, and visit the GP when they need to, gives people greater control of their own health and encourages healthy behaviours that help prevent ill health in the long-term. See advice resource bottom of right hand column.

In many cases people can take care of their minor ailments, reducing the number of GP consultations and enabling GPs to focus on caring for higher risk patients, such as those with comorbidities, the very young and elderly, managing long-term conditions and providing new services.

Oriel Surgery Training Practice

 

Oriel Surgery has been accredited as a training practice, and from early August 2015 we will be hosting qualified doctors intending to become GP’s. Becoming a training practice means that we have been recognised for achieving higher standards of patient care – something that we earnestly value and treasure.

 

The GP Trainee is a fully qualified doctor who already has experience of hospital medicine and will gain invaluable experience by being based within the practice.

 

Please do not hesitate to speak to the GP or staff member about this new development

 

 

 

 

 

Cancelling your Appointment

 If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery as early as possible to cancel your appointment.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Test Results

The Practice has an electronic link to the laboratory at the local Hospital.

To receive test results, please contact the Practice between the hours of 11-12pm and 3-4 pm. The receptionist will be happy to inform you of the test results reported by the doctor.

For reasons of confidentiality, information will not be given to another person unless prior permission has been given.

Repeat Prescriptions and On-Line ordering

pill_bottleThe surgery now operate on online prescription ordering service for repeat prescriptions only! Registration is available by calling at reception ONLY and photographic ID is required before a user profile can be created.

Prescriptions and sick lines can be obtained by ringing the practice on 028 94 464936, or by request at reception.

Alternatively you can use the right hand side of the prescription , tick or write required items and leave with your usual pharamist

It takes 24 hours to process repeat scripts and to have them collected by your designated chemist, therefore it is vital that you order your medicines well in advance and ensure that you don’t run out.

Scripts for acute illnesses (i.e. needed the same day), should be ordered from reception before 11:00. If ordered after 11:00, the script may be collected at the surgery after 17:30 that day or after 10:00 at the designated pharmacy the next day.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
