Patients are requesting additional medications due to COVID-19 and patients concerns re self -isolation.
The Practice will NOT be issuing additional supplies of medication.
Patients can order their medication in the normal way to avoid any stock piling causing shortages of medicines in the system.
We ask that patients do the following:-
1. Order their medication either on line, by email or post in the outside post box at Kippax Health Centre, as normal at Monk Fryston and letter box Garforth. We will also accept request via telephone from vulnerable patients /patients self isolating etc whilst we are in pandemic phase. NB We will NOT be reverting back to pharmacies taking 3rd party orders on behalf of the patient
2. We ask that patients nominate a pharmacy for dispensing and collection of medication to reduce footfall in practice. If you have a problem collecting your dispensed medications pharmacies provide a delivery service. Ask your nominated pharmacy for further details.
3. We will be increasing the number of issues that patients can have of their repeat medication before they are due a review to avoid clinically stable patients having to be seen during the pandemic.
