Dr Crossin & Higgins Practice Notice
NO MEDICATION will be prescribed until you have completed the New Patient Registration. Prescribing any medication must be through a doctor. You must speak to a Doctor either over the phone or face to face. This practice does not prescribe sleeping tablets, anxiety tablets and strong painkillers unless recommend by the GP. If you are currently on sleeping tablets or anxiety tablets these will be reviewed, reduced and eventually stopped in line with best practice as most of these drugs are not for long term use. Your previous GP is responsible for your medication requests until you have been accepted onto our Practice List.
Failure to attend or cancel an appointment results in reduced availability for other patients and wasted time. Patients who DNA an appointment 3 times within a twelve month period will be sent a warning letter informing them of the consequences. To cancel an appointment you can either, ring the surgery, call in and speak to the receptionist in person, send a letter or send an email.
