Contraceptive Pill Reviews
We are trialling an online review service to see if we can reduce the need for you to take time from work to undergo a face to face review.
Women 18 years and older, who are currently taking a contraceptive pill, prescribed by Park Medical Centre who are happy with their current contraception and wish to continue taking it can request a repeat prescription via our online questionnaire.
These questions help us to identify those who may be at risk of complications therefore, it is essential for your own safety that you answer all of the questions accurately. It is your responsibility to ensure that the answers you give are honest and accurate.
In order to complete this questionnaire, you will require a current height, weight and blood pressure reading obtained within the last month. A blood pressure machine is available for you to use in the waiting room if needed.
If you are having any problems with your medication or would like to consider alternative contraception options, please book an appointment to speak to Nurse Lynsey or Sam, or your GP, who will be able to offer advice.
The District Nurses are attached to the practice and provide care to patients, especially the elderly, who are confined to their home and need nursing care. Your doctor will arrange for this service to be provided, when necessary.
Health Visitors usually become involved with families during the late antenatal period or first four weeks of baby’s life. They advise on health care of expectant mothers, babies and young children (including child health, breastfeeding, immunisation and post-natal depression); also of the elderly and disabled.
You can contact the Health Visitors on (01244) 398010.
The doctors and midwives provide antenatal and postnatal services. When you have a positive pregnancy test you should inform the receptionist who will give you a pregnancy information pack. Please note that the process requires expectant mums to choose a maternity service provider and self refer per the details in the Pregnancy Advice and Information Leaflet.
