Noticeboard

You may have noticed our building is up for Sale but Don't Worry, we are not going anywhere! I can assure you we have no plans to close the business but are purely selling the building to lease back to the partners.  There is no cause for alarm or panic we are not going anywhere!  We are currently advertising for an additional GP and have become a training practice and will be hosting our first GP registrar this year.

Home Medicine Cabinet

You can help yourself by always being prepared for any accident or emergency around the home. A basic kit would contain paracetemol mixture for young children, soluble aspirin tablets, cough linctus, vapour rub, sticking plasters, antiseptic solution and cream, calamine lotion, 3 inch crepe bandage, cotton wool, thermometer and tweezers.

We suggest you keep the following:

  • Paracetamol and aspirin (children under 16 and people with asthma should not take aspirin)
  • Mild laxatives
  • Anti-diarrhoeal medicines
  • Rehydration mixture
  • Indigestion remedy (for example, antacids)
  • Travel sickness tablets
  • Sunscreen – SPF15 or higher
  • Sunburn treatment (for example, calamine)
  • Tweezers and sharp scissors
  • A thermometer
  • A selection of plasters, non-absorbent cotton wool, elastic bandages and dressings

Remember:

  • Keep the medicine chest in a secure, locked place out of reach of small children
  • Always read the instructions and use the suggested dose
  • Watch expiry dates – don’t keep or use medicines past their sell-by date
  • Take all unwanted and out-of-date medicines back to the pharmacy
