There will be no open surgery in Albert Street on Friday 30th March. The surgery will be closed on Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd April. Please make sure all prescriptions are collected before 12 Noon on Good Friday and adequate medication is ordered to cover the holiday period.
The practice has recently installed a new phone system. There will be a dedicated line for ordering repeat prescriptions which we will pilot in the Albert Street site (02895 905300). If successful we will make this permanent and introduce it in Carrickhill.
Sinead Fay works with the practice as our pharmacist. She will help ensure best practice with medicines management and enhance the service we provide.
With the help of our practice pharmacist we are currently reviewing past prescriptions for antibiotics. We plan to update our protocols and remind patients that an antibiotic is not required for simple coughs and colds.
As part of an overall plan to reduce patient attendance at the local A/E departments the practice has been asked to produce an action plan. We wish to highlight our open surgery policy and availability Monday-Friday. We would ask patients to contact the practice in the first instance when possible. More detailed information about our plan can be requested at reception.
