CHANGES TO ORDERING PRESCITIONS BY EMAIL

PLEASE CLICK ON PRESCRIPTIONS SECTION ABOVE TO SEE HOW TO GO ABOUT ORDERING ONLINE AND OTHER METHODS.

CHANGE TO PROCEDURE FOR BOOKING ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS

From 1st December 2018 Appointments may be booked as follows:-

  • On-line from 6.00pm
  • By telephone from 9.00am

It will no longer be possible to book appointments in person at reception desk, this will end the unacceptable practice of having to queue outside in order to make an appointment.

Forms to register for online booking are available at reception.

Planned Extension to Quayside Medical Practice

Work will be ongoing from February 2018 - January 2019

During this time access to the car park maybe curtailed and you may need to allow extra time to find a suitable parking space.

The partners apologise for any inconvenience but the situation cannot be avoided while construction work is being carried out.

NEW ARRANGEMENTS FOR CAR PARK

WE REGRET THAT WE HAVE HAD TO SECURE THE SERVICES OF A CAR PARK MANAGEMENT COMPANY FOR OUR CAR PARK.

A CAMERA IS NOW INSTALLED TO RECORD THE NUMBER PLATE OF ALL VEHICLES ENTERING THE CAR PARK.

ANYONE WITH LEGITAMITE BUSINESS IN THE SURGERY MUST ENTER THEIR CAR REGISTRATION NUMBER ON 1 OF 2 IPADS LOCATED IN RECPTION AREA TO RECEIVE A PARKING PERMIT, ALSO IF SOMEONE IS WAITING FOR YOU IN THE CAR PARK THEIR REGISTRATION NUMBER MUST BE ENTERED ON 1 OF THE IPADS.

CAR NUMBER PLATES THAT ARE NOT VALIDATED WILL RECEIVE A PARKING FINE.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
