GENERAL ENQUIRIES AND BLOOD RESULTS
Please can we remind patients that when telephoning the Surgery for general enquiries and blood results to call between 2pm and 4pm.
May we remind Patients when re-ordering your medications please provide the prescription side slip enclosed with your delivery and NOT your empty boxes or cartons. This has been picked up in a recent audit and it is something we should not be doing. We need your original prescription side slip for the re-ordering process.
ALSO WE WOULD REMIND YOU TO ALLOW 3 WORKING DAYS BEFORE COLLECTING YOUR REPEATS. Too many Patients are calling the Surgery to see if their prescription is ready ! Below is a table setting out the collection process :
Delivery Ready for Collection
Friday (+ Sat and Sun) Wednesday
Please remember if you have difficulty in collection your prescription we do have a Courier Service on a Friday morning.

SMALL YELLOW SHARPS BINS
To avoid risk of infection to the public all sharps should be disposed of safely in a yellow "sharps or burns" bin.
These are available on prescription from the Surgery via dispensary. THEY ARE NOW COLLECTED BY CORNWALL COUNCIL. You must register with them by filling in form UN3291 and posting it back to the Council. Forms are available in the Surgery if you want to collect one. You can also go online or phone 0300 1234 141 to request collection. The Surgery are no longer able to receive used sharp bins. The Council website is https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/environment-and-planning/recycling-rubbish-and-waster/clinical-waste-an-sharps-collections/
PROVISION OF MEDICATIONS
In light of Brexit, Patients may be concerned about the provision of medication over the next few months. We have been assured by the Government that the NHS have made plans to ensure that all medications will be available during the changeover period. Please do not try to stockpile your medications. Thank you.
