Please note from the 10th January 2018 Medical Students maybe with the doctor you have an appointment with.
Taking antibiotics encourages harmful bacteria that live inside you to become resistant. That means that antibiotics may not work when you really need them. This puts you and your family at risk of a more severe or longer illness.
Take your doctor or nurse's advice when it comes to antibiotics.
The Old School Surgery are planning to CLOSE Greencroft Annexe from 1st February 2018. Until the New Year we are open for business as usual.
Please see Practice Newsletter link on the right hand side of the home page for the latest edition of the practice newsletter.
Many people don't quite know how to provide feedback on the care they have received from the NHS, but it's incredibly important to have your say so you can help shape and improve your local services.
The NHS Friends and Family Test gives you the chance to provide quick, anonymous feedback on your care and treatment experience. All you have to do is ask to complete the Friends and Family Test in the surgery or complete online by clicking on "take the patient survey" on the home page, and you can say what went well and what you think can be improved.
Your feedback really can help to make a difference to patients' lives. To find out more about the NHS Friends and Family Test please visit:- www.nhs.uk/friendsandfamily
You should dial 111 if you need urgent medical care when the surgery is closed. Please refer to the opening times when we are closed section.
We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff with due respect. We take seriously any threatening, abusive or violent behaviour against any of our staff or patients.
If a patient is violent or abusive they will be warned to stop such behaviour. If they persist, we may exercise our right to take action to have them removed, immediately if necessary, from our list of patients.
The way repeat prescriptions are ordered is changing. From the 30th June 2019 you will have to order your repeat prescriptions directly through The Old School Surgery and not your high street or internet pharmacy or appliance contractor.
If you already order repeat prescriptions directly through your GP Practice this change will not affect you. When you order your repeat prescription directly through The Old School Surgery, your pharmacy will continue to collect or receive your prescription as before. Pharmacies may also continue to deliver your prescription if they offer this service.
You can order repeat prescriptions through The Old School Surgery online, by post or in person by using the tick slip, which is the right-hand side of your prescription which lists your current repeat medication.
Find out more on the West Leicestershire CCG website.
Please note this does not affect the surgery dispensing patients. Please order your prescription in the normal way.
All patients on repeat medication must have their medication reviewed anually. Please note that the review date is on your repeat script. Please allow 2 working days (more for bank holidays) for repeats to be processed.
We dispense medicines for patients living in Sharnford, Elmesthorpe and Thurlaston. A delivery service is available every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your prescription is with us no later than Friday morning for a Monday delivery and Tuesday afternoon for a Thursday delivery if you require this service. All other patients must use a community pharmacist.

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
PPCs offer savings for those needing 4 or more items in 3 months or 13 or more items in one year.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Sometimes patients receive medicines they don't actually use or use only occasionally.
Around half of all medication returned to pharmacies have not even been opened.
This means that patients are ordering and receiving medication that they don't even start to use.
Unused medicines cost the NHS (that's us) around £300 million every year in England.
By reducing the amount of medicines being wasted each year we could increase the available funding for other health services:-
Before ordering a repeat prescription, work out what you actually need.
Think before you tick a repeat prescription box. Try not to stockpile your medication.
Once you leave a pharmacy your medicines cannot be recycled or used by anyone else. This means that any you return are destroyed.
Medicines taken incorrectly or unused could result in worsening symptoms and extra treatments that could have been avoided.
The NHS spends more than £80m each year on paracetamol at an average cost of £3.83 per prescription. Four times more than those purchased over the counter.
In West Leicester £1 million was spent on paracetamol products in 2014/15 out of a total prescribing budget of £50m.
We welcome your thoughts on Paracetamol Prescribing. Some patients have decided to cross paracetamol off their repeat prescriptions and to purchase it themselves it's your choice.
