Providing lifelong care that is: safe, effective & dependable - for all of our community.

 

September 2020 - In order to keep our patients safe, the surgery is continuing to operate a triage model of care.  Once your care needs have been assessed by a clinician - either by phone or by reviewing your online consultation - please be assured that you will be offered a face-to-face appointment if the clinician feels that your care cannot be handled over the phone. 


Please use Online Consult - This is a new service for all NHS GP Practices and our reception team can walk you through how to use it.

Further to recent Government Guidance on wearing face masks, please see document from Worcestershire & Herefordshire LMC, stating that our GP's are not in a position to provide patients with exemption letters.  There is more information about this in our NEWS section of this website.

Repeat Prescriptions

 

If you are a new patient please make an appointment to see a doctor before requesting repeat medication.

 

Repeat medication can be collected 48 hours

(2 working days) after your request has been received.

 

Herefordshire Prescribing Committee recommends that 28 days should be the usual treatment length for routine repeat prescriptions, and we comply with these recommendations at Fownhope Medical Centre. Where certain medications are only available in larger packs, exceptions to this rule apply, such as some hormone replacement therapies and oral contraceptive pills.

 

Different ways you can order your repeat prescription

  1. Use the computer slip from previous prescriptions and hand it in to the Dispensary when you collect your repeat prescription, it will be dispensed ready for you 4 weeks from this date.
  2. Use Patient Access to order repeat prescriptions online. See the Patient Access page for details on how to register for this service.
  3. Email fownhope.dispensary@nhs.net
  4. Post the computer slip to Fownhope Medical Centre, Fownhope, Hereford HR1 4PZ. 

You can order repeat prescriptions by telephoning the Dispensary on 01432 860241 between 10 am and 12 noon.  However, with the high volume of calls we receive, you may find that the dispensary number is often engaged. Therefore, it is advisable to order your medication by one of the alternative methods as suggested above. If you choose to order your repeat medication by telephone, please have all the necessary information to hand, to ensure that you order the correct items.

 

If you need glasses for reading don’t forget to bring them with you when you order your prescription! This makes things so much easier when you have to decide which medication you need!
