Heat Health Watch Service

Heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for the very young, the elderly or those with a chronic disease. Prolonged exposure to very high temperatures can mean the body is unable to reduce its own temperature, causing dehydration and heatstroke, which can be fatal. In particular, hot temperatures overnight make it difficult for the body to cool.

The Heat Health Watch Service operates in England from 1 June to 15 September each year, in association with Public Health England.

The Met Office forecasts day-time and night-time maximum temperatures, which are monitored regionally. When certain heat thresholds are passed, a warning is issued and sent to relevant NHS, social care, local and national government professionals, well as being displayed on our website. This enables organisations, frontline staff and individuals to take action to minimise the impact of the heat on peoples' health.

Audiology Service

The practice is currently offering a new audiology service from the Padiham and Nelson sites - ask at reception for further information. Over 55 year old can ask to be referred into the service for Free NHS hearing aids.

East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group

Over the last 18 months East Lancashire CCG has been working alongside patients, carers and wider stakeholders like doctors and pharmacists to develop a vision for how they would like GP services to develop in future. Our vision is for GPs and partner organisations to work together more closely; to provide quality joined up care; with equal access to services wherever you live in East Lancashire. Together we came up with a simplified system to provide appointments in the practice, on the phone, online and in patients’ homes as required. Further information in document below.

 

Repeat Prescriptions

red_pills_bottlePatients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • You can call at the surgery and drop the tear-off slip from your last prescription into the repeat prescription box provided in the surgery.
  • You can post it to the surgery and enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
  • You can order your repeat medication online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.

Please note we do not accept medication requests over the telephone due to increased risk of error.

Requests for medication that is not due will only be given in exceptional circumstances. 

 

Collecting Your Prescription

 

Your prescription will be ready for collection 2 working days after we have received it.

  • You can collect your prescription from the surgery in person or you can ask a friend or relative (who must be over 16 years of age).
  • You can use a local pharmacy of your choice to collect your prescription, they may also deliver your medication to you. You must have an agreement with the pharmacy of your choice and inform the surgery before requesting your prescription.
  • Alternatively, you can send us a stamped addressed envelope and we will post your prescription to you – please be aware that this option could take longer so kindly take this into consideration.

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.
