PRESCRIPTIONS

Most of you will have found that the regulations change from time to time regarding prescriptions. In most cases we can provide three month prescriptions for regular medication, and repeat prescriptions can be issued where this is appropriate. Sometimes for repeats we will ask you to see the nurse, for example to check your blood pressure etc.

Please, when leaving a message for a prescription or repeat prescription, make sure you speak slowly and clearly and state exactly which medications you require.

Please phone 578 0979 between the hours of 0830 to 1700 Monday to Friday.

Ring for a repeat prescription or call in. Sometimes though, you’ll need to see a nurse or doctor, to check your blood pressure for example. For medicines you take regularly, mostly we’ll provide three-month prescriptions. These can be collected 24 hours after ordering, or 48 hours for a controlled drug. Express scripts can usually be provided that day for an additional fee.

You may also email us for prescription. These will be completed within a 48 hour period, so should not be used for urgent need. Tell us:

MEDICAL CONSULTATIONS

Our Doctors provide a full range of individual and family medicine. Although we do not provide maternity care we can advise you as to what options are available to you in the Marlborough area.

Consultations are booked in as quarter hour appointments, however, patients can ask for a longer time slot. This may incur a higher fee. An additional fee is added to any accounts not paid on the day or by the end of the month. Click here for details of our latest fees.
