IMPORTANT MEDICATION INFORMATION

From 1st April 2019 Gabapentin and Pregabalin will be classed as controlled drugs. This means that prescriptions for these medications can only be collected from reception with proof of photo ID.

They can no longer be sent to your chemist.  Please bear this in mind when ordering your repeat prescriptions.

Pharmacists must dispense the drugs within 28 days of the prescription being written.

If you have any questions please speak to the Reception Manager.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Welcome to Gosforth Memorial Medical Centre

At Gosforth Memorial Medical Centre we aim to treat all our patients courteously, fairly and in complete confidence. We endeavour to provide a family based service and have particular interest in antenatal, children’s health, minor surgery, dermatology, family planning and chronic disease management.

Prescription Collection is changing

Commencing July 2018 anyone asking to collect a prescription for either themselves or on behalf of someone else will need to bring proof of ID and sign on collection.  This is to protect your personal data in line with GDPR.

Should you wish your prescriptions to be collected by someone else, we will need signed consent from you to do so.

DO YOU TAKE PREGABALIN OR GABAPENTIN?

The law is changing from April 2019 - click below for more information.

Age for consent has changed

The age for parents having automatic consent to a child's record has now reduced to 11.  There is national guidance which the Practice has to adhere to.  If the child consents to the parent having access a proxy access form can be used which needs to be completed and signed by the child at the surgery.  Ask a receptionist for further information if required.

Children and young people

If your child has become unwell in the last few days and you would like urgent advice then please contact the surgery and we will arrange for a clinician to speak to you and if necessary to see your child the same day – this could save you an unnecessary trip to A+E or a Walk-in Centre. Can we also make you aware of the Little Orange Book, which provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children – ask at the reception desk for a copy, or view it online here
