Welcome To Chapel Street Medical Centre

 

Dr Stringer has asked receptionists to collect brief Information from patients to:

  • ensure you are treated as efficiently as possible when you are in surgery
  • help doctors prioritise home visits and phone calls
  • ensure that all patients receive an appropriate level of care
  • direct patients to see the most appropriate healthcare professional for you medical complaints such as:
    • optician for minor eye complaints
    • dentist for oral, gum and teeth issues
    • pharmacy for minor ailments, such as coughs, colds, fevers, hayfever etc
    • midwife for maternity issues
    • health visitor for some young children's
    • as well as many others

Dr Stringer would also like to remind you that in asking such questions on his behalf, they are not trying t provide health care but not help him provide you with the best possible and navigate you to the most appropriate care for your needs. He also reminds you that the reception staff, like all members of the team, are bound by strict rules of confidentiality.

  

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Changes to how your medication is ordered

From 1st January 2018 your Pharmacist will no longer be able to order any medication on your behalf. This is what now happens for most surgeries in Tameside and we have been asked to do this by our commissioners.

We feel that encouraging our patients to order their own medication ensures that they are taking responsibility for their own health and also helps to discourage pharmacies from ordering unwanted items.

You can continue to order your medication at the surgery by using your re-order slip but we would suggest that you order on-line  (Please ask our Staff for details); this is quicker for us and possibly more convenient for you as you can do this from home 24/7, even if you are away on holiday!

You can also arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a specific Pharmacy, to make the process easier for you. Our Staff or your Pharmacist will be able to set this up for you.

If you are aware of anyone who might not be able to order their medication themselves for any reason, then please let our Staff know.
