New Repeat Prescription Line

From Monday 22nd October, repeat prescriptions can be ordered via our new Repeat Prescription Request Line on 01563 599300.

We will no longer be taking repeat prescription requests on our main line.

The Repeat Prescription Request Line allows you to leave a message day 24 hours a day.

Please ensure you leave the following information on our answering machine:

Your Name, Address, Date of Birth, Contact Telephone Number, Full description of the items you require.

If you telephone our main line, you will be asked to redial the above number.

This allows the practice to free up the lines for those requiring more urgent assistance.

For more information on how to order your repeat medication, including online, in person and by telephone, click on the Prescription tab above.

COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

We always try to provide the best service possible, but there may be times when you feel this has not happened. The following information explains our in-house complaints procedure, drawn up to respond to patient grievances. We hope you will use it to allow us to look into, and, if necessary, correct any problems that you have identified, or mistakes that have been made. Any complaints should be addressed either by telephone or in writing to our Practice Manager, Lorna Attia.

Stage 1 - early, local resolution

We aim to resolve complaints quickly and close to where we provided the service. Where appropriate, this could mean an on-the-spot apology and explanation if something has clearly gone wrong, and immediate action to resolve the problem. Sometimes we will have to make some enquiries before we can respond to your complaint. We will give you our decision at Stage one in five working days or less, unless there are exceptional circumstances. If we cannot resolve your complaint at this stage, we will explain why and tell you what you can do next. We might suggest that you take your complaint to Stage two. You may choose to do this immediately or sometime after you get our initial decision.

Stage 2 - investigation

Stage two deals with two types of complaint: those that have not been resolved at Stage one and those that are complex and require detailed investigation. When using Stage two we will: acknowledge receipt of your complaint within three working days; where appropriate, discuss your complaint with you to understand why you remain dissatisfied and what outcome you are looking for; and give you a full response to the complaint as soon as possible and within 20 working days. If our investigation will take longer than 20 working days, we will tell you. We will agree revised time limits with you and keep you updated on progress. Most complaints are resolved within our in-house complaints procedure, but should you feel that we have not dealt with your complaint adequately then you can ask the Ombudsman to have a look at your complaint. You can contact them as follows: Scottish Public Services Ombudsman, FREEPOST EH641, Edinburgh EH3 0BR. Online contact www.spso.org.uk/contact-us Freephone 0800 377 7330 or call 0131 225 5300
