Noticeboard

COVID-19 VACCINE

If you are 18 or over and you have still not had your vaccine, you can have this done at Ivry Street Medical Practice. Please call 01473 254718 to make an appointment.

 


 Named GP

All patients registered at Barrack Lane Medical Centre hold a practice wide registration. This means you can elect to be seen at either Barrack Lane or Stoke Park site. Every patient is allocated a named GP, but this does not prevent you from seeing the clinician of your choice if they have availability. If you would like more details please contact us or ask at reception.


Keep or Cancel

Patients who do not attend for their appointments cost the National Health Service many millions of pounds each year.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.


Out of Hours

For urgent advice after the surgery has closed, during the night and at weekends dial 111 for the Out of Hours Service for Suffolk. Calls to this service are free of charge from both landlines and mobiles. 


Test Results

Specimens need to be dropped in at the reception desk by 12 noon so that we can send the samples off to the laboratories.  Please ring for results after 2.30pm when the surgery is less busy.

Electronic Prescription Service

Almost all prescriptions can now be sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy. This means that you can avoid having to come to the surgery to collect your prescription. Once we have generated a prescription we can send it to your chosen pharmacy (electronically) and you will be able to collect your medication from the pharmacy directly.

If a pharmacy is unable to get a medication you can ask for a 'token' which allows you to take your prescription to a different pharmacy.

Please always check the repeat prescription slip for messages from the surgery. We may add information regarding whether you need to been seen for a review.

As we normally give you a month's notice please do not leave it to the last minute to make that appointment.

SHARPS BOXES

Please be aware that we are no longer taking sharps boxes. You will also need to get any new boxes from your pharmacy. Various sizes are available and your pharmacist will be able to request them on your behalf. For more information and advice on how to arrange a collection please click HERE
