OVER THE COUNTER MEDICINE

Processing these prescriptions can cost 20 times the price of buying identical medication at your local pharmacy or supermarket

THE PRACTICE WOULD LIKE TO ASK  PATIENT'S WHO REQUIRE MEDICATION FOR HAYFEVER AND ALLERGIES TO PURCHASE THESE AT YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY OR SUPERMARKET. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.

 

**ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY**

Please note the practice operates a zero tolerance policy. In recent months we have noticed a significant increase in abuse towards our staff. At Cityview Medical we treat all our patients with dignity and respect and we expect all our staff to be treated with respect. We will not tolerate any abusive language, threatening behaviour or aggression towards any member of staff. Any violation of this policy will result in removal from the practice list.

PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Home Visits

Doctor's bag

Home visits are made only when the medical condition of the patient makes it impossible for them to come to the Health Centre.  

The doctors generally start home visits after their morning surgery around 12pm onwards.  It is therefore important that requests for home visits be made before 10:00.   

It should be noted that patients are not normally routinely visited on discharge from hospital. 

You can be visited at home by a community nurse if you are referred by your GP. You should also be visited at home by a health visitor if you have recently had a baby or if you are newly registered with a GP and have a child under five years.
