Public Health England is advising the public to ensure they have had 2 doses of MMR vaccine after outbreaks of measles are confirmed across England. We are bringing this to your attention as we encourage our patients to have the MMR vaccine. You can find more information and advice about the measles outbreaks accross England on the Nhs website and also in the media.
Please speak to a Practice Nurse if you need any further advice.
Over-the-counter medicines, changes to prescribing
Did you know in 2017-2018 we spent £3.2 million on prescribing over-the-counter medicines in Leeds?
And across England, in the year prior to June 2017, the NHS spent approximately £569 million on prescriptions for medicines which can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy and other outlets such as supermarkets.
To help ensure we make the best use of our budget we have now implemented national guidance (issued by NHS England) and are asking GPs not to routinely prescribe over-the-counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns. Instead we are asking local people to buy over-the-counter medicines from their local pharmacy or supermarket.
Sign-up for Online Services
The Practice is always looking for ways to simplify your engagement with us. We encourage you to register for our Online Services which will enable you to book and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions and handle additional tasks without having to call us or wait in a queue. The NHS App will be launched in early 2019 and make this even easier.
We would also ask you to provide us with up-to-date mobile phone numbers and email addresses, so that you can receive free text messages regarding your appointments, medical reviews and vaccinations, and changes to our services.
