FACE MASK POLICY 


Although face masks will no longer be a legal requirement from 19 July 2021, as a clinical healthcare setting, Kiveton Park Medical Practice has decided that all staff and patients must continue to wear masks within the surgery until further notice. 


Infection rates of Covid-19 are on the increase, especially in our locality, and we feel it is imperative that we protect our most vulnerable patients and our workforce.  This is essential if we are to continue to provide patients with a local primary care service.  The Delta variant is highly contagious and has the potential to spread quickly in confined areas.  We simply cannot risk acting as a focus for infection. 


We thank patients for their understanding and co-operation.  In the hopefully unlikely event that a patient refuses to respect this request, then they may be asked to rearrange the appointment so that we can see them in a COVID secure environment. 


Thank you.

Repeat Prescriptions

All your medication is recorded on our practice computer which routinely checks for interactions and allergies. 

You will need to order your prescription online, via the link at the top of this page. To use this service you will need to provide ID to the reception team who will then give you a password and username. If your are unable to use this service contact the surgery.

It takes TWO WORKING DAYS to produce a new prescription (released after 5pm) or dispense medication, but we can sometimes rush this a little if you explain the need to reception. We usually issue a single month's supply of medication in line with NHS guidance so even if you are on several different treatments it should be possible for you to make a single monthly request. Requests for repeat medication should not be made over the telephone as there is more likelihood of a mistake with the prescription.

Queries about routine medication can be dealt with by our dispensing team at Harthill or by ringing the prescription department at Kiveton. You may have to leave a message but someone will get back to you. 

Dispensing Patients

If you live more than a mile from a chemist, you may obtain your medicines from our dispensary at Harthill. This generally means patients who live in Harthill, Woodall, Thorpe Salvin and Kiveton Park Station. Unless you request otherwise we will issue the relevant medicines rather than a prescription if you have seen the doctor at the Harthill Surgery. If you live within a mile from a pharmacy you will receive a prescription.

Deliveries

Harthill Surgery offers a free delivery service for patients who are unable to collect their medication. 

Urgent Medication

If you require urgent medication when Harthill surgery is closed please contact the main surgery at Kiveton on 01909 770213 and 111 when this surgery is closed.

Medication Reviews

The doctors regularly review the records of patients on long–term medication so don't be alarmed if you are asked to make an appointment to discuss your treatment. You might also be asked to attend for routine blood tests, in which case the relevant form should be with the request letter.
