Don’t let hay fever spoil your summer 

 

Did you know you don’t need to see your GP for hay fever treatment? 

Hay fever and seasonal allergy treatments such as tablets, eye drops and nasal sprays are all easily available at low cost from your local pharmacy – no prescription from your GP required! 

Antihistamines are usually the best treatment for hay fever and these can easily be bought from local pharmacies or supermarkets. Buying a packet of 30 tablets can cost as little as £2, but if a patient goes to their GP to get a prescription then it costs the NHS considerably more. 

By going to the pharmacy you’ll be saving yourself time and money, freeing up GP appointments for people with more urgent needs as well as doing your bit to help the NHS save money on unnecessary prescription costs. 

For more information about treating allergies or to find your nearest pharmacy and opening times visit www.nhs.uk 

 

Top tips to help ease hay fever symptoms:  

  • Keep house and car windows closed, especially when the pollen count is high (early morning between 7am to 9am and evenings between 5pm and 7pm) 
  • Avoid large grassy areas, woodland, cutting the grass and car fumes 
  • Wear wrap-around sunglasses 
  • Use petroleum jelly inside your nose to block inhalation of pollen 
  • Don’t dry washing outside to avoid pollen sticking to your clothes  
  • When you get in from outside wash your hands, face, hair, rinse your eyes and change your clothes.

New Appointment System _ October 2017

From October 2017 we will be operating a new appointment booking system.  This has become necessary to try to reduce patients who DNA's (Did not attend)

 

The daily appointments are to be split 25/75.  Approximately 25% of appointments are released two weeks in advance.  These are useful if you need to plan an appointment or manage an ongoing condition.

 

The other 75% of appointments are "book on the day appointments" and realeased at 08.00am each morning.

 

Once all of our daily appointments have been taken, the receptionist will ask whether the problem can wait until the next morning.  If the appointment is for a clinically urgent problem your details we be given to the triage doctor who will call you to access the problem
