    Are you a Carer?

    Carers play an important and fundamental role in the lives of those whom they care for. A carer is any individual who provides care and support to a family member or friend who has a disability, mental illness, drug and/or alcohol dependency, chronic condition, terminal illness or who is frail. Grafton Road Surgery can support those who care for others in different ways. We have information available at the Surgery and work with local agencies who can give advice and guidance in relation to services that are available to carers. If you are a carer, please let a member of the team know to enable us to support you.

They will have to be picked up from the surgery as someone will have to sign for them. Thank you.

    It is the patient’s responsibility to manage their own medication and ensure that they are ordered in a timely fashion. The surgery has 48 hours to complete any repeat medication requests and 72 hours for any requests which may need to be queried. We know that the practice runs well and many prescriptions are completed on the same day that they are brought in, however we are increasingly being asked to produce prescriptions at very short notice because the patient has forgotten to order them and have now run out. This puts pressure on reception, and even more so, on the Doctors who are already managing full surgeries and hundreds of prescriptions each week. Please ensure that you order your medication at least 48 working hours before you need it. Many thanks in advance for your co-operation.

    It is important that patients have a voice in how the service is delivered here at Grafton Road Surgery. With this in mind we would like to reform the practice Patient Participation Group (PPG), to meet regularly to discuss ways forward for the surgery and share ideas about how we can work together. If you are interested then please leave your name and contact details at reception and the Practice Manager will be in touch.
