Switching of emollients on repeat prescription
You may find that there is a change to your emollient prescription when you next apply for your repeat medication. This is because the CCG has asked us to review the prescriptions of all our patients to make sure that we are following up to date guidelines.
Many emollients have the same ingredients, but come in different brands. Some brands are much more expensive for the NHS to pay for than others. It makes sense for us to save money for the NHS where we can, by prescribing the cheapest brand of the same cream.
If a change has been made to your prescription, please try your new medication. If you are unhappy with the change, or think we have made a mistake, then please let us know so that we can review your prescription again.
Welcome to Dr Cartwright.
From Wednesday 3rd January 2018 we are delighted to welcome Dr Cartwright to Fleet Medical Centre. Dr Cartwright will be taking over the patient lists from Dr Mangat who will be leaving the practice at the start of the New Year.
The Partners and all the staff of Fleet Medical Centre would like to thank Dr Mangat for his time with the practice and to wish him well for the future.
If you have been a previous patient of Dr Blume or Dr Mangat you will now be registered under the care of Dr Cartwright to ensure we maintain the continuity of care for all of our patients.
We are sure you will join us in wishing Dr Cartwright well in her new role at the practice.
