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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
