E-Consult


We have gone live with a new online system called eConsult. It allows patients to self-check symptoms and receive medical advice without attending the Surgery. You can use this 24 hours a day and if needed our GPs will respond no later than the end of the next working day. Please see our home page for further details.


 

                                    

Repeat Prescriptionschd

 

We run a computerised system to issue repeat prescriptions which have been agreed with your doctor. If you are taking a regular course of medication, repeat prescriptions can be obtained by ringing the dispensary on 01482 896826 between 9.00am and 12.30pm and 1.30pm and 4.30pm. An answerphone is available at all other times for you to leave your prescription request.

 

Alternatively you can submit the right side of your prescription slip to reorder either at the Keyingham or Hedon surgeries, or online via the form on this website.

 

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

 

The Dispensary

 

If you live more than a mile from a chemist, you may obtain your medicines from our dispensary. This generally means everyone except those in Hedon, Thorngumbald, Bilton and parts of Preston.

 

Prescription Charges

 

Free prescriptions are available for the following:

                          

  • patients over retirement age
  • under 16
  • under 19 if in full-time education
  • pregnant ladies
  • mothers who have had a child in the last 12 months
  • patients receiving: income support, Working Tax Credit Child Tax Credit, Disabled Pension
  • certain medical conditions qualify

If you are unsure please ask.

For those who need a number of prescriptions and who pay for them, it may be worth investigating the purchase of a ‘season ticket’. Further details can be obtained from leaflet P11 available from the dispensary, chemists, Post Offices or DSS offices. All must be signed. Exemption must be seen.
