NEW ONLINE SERVICE FOR ORDERING REPEAT MEDICATIONS

We have introduced a new improved service for ordering your repeat medications on line.   When you next order your medication you will be emailed an information sheet with a tear off slip which should be completed and either handed in to the practice or emailed to:  coldside.tayside@nhs.net  (Information sheets are also available at reception).

Upon receipt of the completed slip we will register you for the service and you will then receive an email with your unique ordering number and instructions on how to set up your account.

As from 01 04 18 repeat medications can only be ordered online using the new service.   Please ensure you complete and return the slip to the practice before your next order is due.

CONTRACEPTIVE PILL

Should you require a further prescription for the contraceptive pill please arrange an appointment with Nurse Ramsay.

It has been brought to our attention that some patients, particularly elderly patients, are being telephoned by someone wishing to make an appointment to visit and discuss the patients' long term conditions and giving the impression they are part of, or working with, the NHS.    We would stress that any details relating to a patient's health or otherwise have not come from the practice and would advise patients to contact the Police if they feel threatened in any way by these calls or companies.
