GP information

Do you have any information or communication needs, please inform reception and we will meet your needs

Do you have a disability, please inform reception if you need any help accessing the services at Rawmarsh Health Centre

Are you a carer, please inform reception, we keep a carers register, to provide help and support when needed

It is now a requirement that all patients are allocated and informed of the name of their GP. All patients registered at Rawmarsh Health Centre are allocated to Dr Chandran. This does not mean that he is the only Doctor you can see,  you can ask to see any GP of your choice. The practice does have numerous emergency appointments each day- these appointments are for any GP working on the day. We also have appoints available for our female Advanced Nurse Practitioner

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) of GP's working to deliver NHS services to patients at each Practice. The average pay for GP'S working in Rawmarsh Health Centre in the last financial year was £70,439 before tax,national insurance and pension contributions. This is for 1 full time GP and 1 GP locum who worked at the practice for more than 6 months

Repeat Prescriptions

From February 2017 we will not accept any prescription requests from pharmacies or companies.

Why is this happening ?

  • This new system will give you more control, under the current system, many patients have reported that they have build up a large stock of unused medicines that they did not request. This could not be stored safely and used within date. This change will address this serious safety concern.
  • This change will also mean that your GP practice will have a clearer picture of the medicines you do and do not use. This will help with your discussions during your medication review.
  • Finally, it is important that NHS money is used as efficiently as possible. Medicines wastes costs the NHS in Rotherham £1.5 million every !

This change will reduce medicines waste,allowing monies to fund other services to improve the health of the people of Rotherham

What is not changing ?

  • If you already order repeat prescriptions directly from your GP practice yourself, you will not be affected and do not need to take any action

Ways to order repeat prescriptions

  • Order online
  • via the practice repeat boxes
  • via post

If you feel you might need support ordering your repeat prescription or you know someone who might need help, please contact reception at the practice

 

Please only order the medicines that you need.

Please check how many days medicine you have left before ordering your repeat prescription.

Please do not order until you have 7 days of medicines left. It usually takes the surgery 2-3 working days days to issue a repeat prescription
