We are delighted to be able to announce the recruitment of a new GP partner to the practice. Dr Andrew Cox is a very experienced GP and has worked in both remote and rural general practice and will be joining us on 14 August 2017. We are extremely excited to have him on board and look forward to a bright future ahead!
Medicines Waste and Adherence Campaign & Questionnaire - watch out for this in 2017!
An estimated 3-4% of prescribing cost is incurred through prescribing waste, a half of which is thought to be cost effectively avoidable.
It is suggested that between a third or a half of all medicines prescribed for long-term conditions are not taken as recommended.
A medicines awareness campaign for patients could assist the Practice in working towards reducing medicines waste and improving patient safety.
