Medication should be looked at and adjusted by the practice once a year and some Surgeries will arrange an appointment for this to take place. There is a danger we can end up on medications where we do not need them after illness and can be withdrawn. Sometimes new medications can be introduced and contrindications can also be controlled. This can help patients discuss their concerns with their medications and see if doses can be reduced or if something needs to be increased.
At the end of a twelve month period if you use a certain chemist they will also offer you an appointment to discuss your medications in general, they can advise you or the GP if something is wrong. This will also allow you to discuss any other problems you may have.
One thing that is not understood if we move areas and change Practices
Your new Surgery will arrange an appointment with the Nurse and GP. This allows them to look at your medications and any treatments you have in hospital or your old Surgry. This is normal and we need to accept that this is a getting to know you as Patient and Practice can address any medical conditions you may have.
You should never be concerned when visiting the Surgery, they are there to help keep you well. You are there to help them understand your fears and concerns.
Remember you are in Partnership with your Surgery and Doctor to keep you well. So in the future you may be invited to undertake routine tests and procedures. This is normal.
Sometimes your normal GP will ask you to see another partner in Surgery. This is because they Specialise in certain types of complaint. You can actually go on NHS Choices Web Page and look up your Practice and Dentist who deals private or NHS.
