Repeating your Prescription

  

There are many times when it is easier and simpler to request your next prescription for medicines. We can do this once a year, providing your health is stable.  The doctor needs to see you once a year 

We call this a

“Repeat Prescription”.

Until now we have been able to take verbal requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone.

We are introducing a change in the process and will now require all request for prescriptions to be

made in writing.

The Irish College of General Practitioners now recommends that requests for repeat prescriptions

be made in writing, and we areviding you with this guidance on how to request your prescription

from the practice going forward.

 

 

We Strive for 3 Things in Tallaght Medical Practice:

 

1: Mutual Respect To You The Patient And Us The Staff in Practice

2: Mutual Responsibility For Your Personal Health

3: Mutual Treatment Plans For Optimal Health

 

WHEN BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT:

The secretary may ask you "in confidence", what you are coming to see the GP about, it is to allow enough time for the GP to see you. 

 

Please remember that the morning surgeries are for ACUTE EMERGENCIES, and are very quick appointments, and the afternoons are longer appointments, where the GP has more time to spend with you.

There is no funding for the demand , a minimal  yearly fee,  That does not mean if your child is very young and dehydrated we must know and a new born must seek medical advice in surgery or out of hours  after 5.30 pm tel 1890202224 up 9pm at local out of hours GP Co OP in Nearby Russell Building   or  and accident and emergency after 9.30pm if very unwell

    Checklist for Controlling Low Blood Sugar

    Let's Talk Diabetes

    Let's Talk Diabetes

    DIABETES MELLITUS IS A LIFELONG CONDITION CAUSED BY A LACK, OR INSUFFICIENCY OF INSULIN. Insulin is a hormone — a substance of vital importance that is made by your pancreas. Insulin acts like a key to open the doors into your cells, letting sugar (glucose) in. In diabetes, the pancreas makes too little insulin to enable all the sugar in your blood to get into your muscle and other cells to produce energy. If sugar can’t get into the cells to be used, it builds up in the bloodstream. Therefore, diabetes is characterised by high blood sugar levels. Excess sugar is also excreted in the urine.
