WINTER PRESSURES

Harrogate District Hospital is experiencing unprecedented high levels of admissions and would ask members of the public to only use the A&E Department if emergency medical attention is needed. We would always encourage the public to consider using other services that are available to ensure that patients with emergency conditions can be seen as soon as possible. 

 

For patients with non-emergency symptoms please visit your community Pharmacist for advice or look online for advice at https://www.nhs.uk/pages/home.aspx  

 

If you feel you need medical attention but are unsure where to turn, please contact NHS 111. If you feel that you do need to see a clinician, please consider ringing your GP practice to book an appointment with them or request an appointment at the extended hours Primary Care Hubs in Harrogate (and Ripon if you are a Ripon patient) which are open on Saturday morning. NHS 111 is still available when the practice is closed if you feel you need out of hours non-emergency medical help and advice.

 

 

"If you have not registered for on-line prescription requests, please come in to the Practice for further information, along with forms of I.D (photographic ID and a utility bill for proof of address)". 

Repeat Prescriptions

medication7Repeat prescribing guidelines require that the quantities of medication issued on repeat prescriptions will usually be for a single month's supply.  A review of medication given on repeat prescriptions is undertaken at intervals of usually no more than six months (and may require blood tests or an appointment with the nurse rather than the doctor). This allows us to ensure that continuing treatment is appropriate and safe.

There are three ways to request a repeat prescription:

  • return your pre-printed prescription counterfoil to the box on the reception counter, having marked it to indicate those items you wish to reorder.
  • telephone the repeat prescription line 01765 609345. This line is open 24 hours a day and there is an answer phone for you to leave a message if we are unable to take your call.
  • follow the link on this page to the online form
