From 1st February 2018 pharmacies and suppliers of medical appliances will no-longer be able to order repeat prescriptions on your behalf. PLEASE NOTE: Park & Calder Community Practice will not be able to accept prescription requests via telephone. If you have any specific needs, please speak to our reception staff, don't struggle, please ask us for help.
Prescription medication can be ordered from your GP by:
In addition to GP consultations the practice offers a range of clinics and healthcare services:
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Clinical Pharmacists in our Surgery
Park and Calder Community Practice is supporting a new training pathway for pharmacists in general practice
As a part of the national NHS England pilot we employ two Clinical Pharmacists in our GP surgery.
Our Pharmacists will offer appointments to patients to help manage long-term conditions such as Hypertension and Asthma, for Medicines Reviews and other medicines-related support, including discussing side effects. Pharmacists can also help patients with their medicines following a stay in hospital.
Having Clinical Pharmacists working at our surgery will increase the availability of appointments, ease the workload of GPs and provide valuable medicines support.
Pharmacists work alongside GP’s and Advanced Nurse Practitioners to ensure that patients receive safe and effective drug treatments, and follow the most up-to-date evidence-based guidelines.
When will you see a Clinical Pharmacist?
Seeing the pharmacist does not replace an appointment with the doctor. You will still be able to see your GP if you need to.
Please see leaflet for more information.
