Treatment of urinary tract infections at your local pharmacy
Pharmacists are playing a larger role within our communities. They offer a wide range of services in addition to dispensing our prescriptions. They offer smoking cessation therapy, minor ailments service, flu vaccinations and blood pressure monitoring to name a few!
As from Monday the 4th of December, your local pharmacist will now also be offering treatment for urinary tract infections in women aged 16-65 years and impetigo for those aged >2 years.
There will be instances where referral back to your doctor will be needed, however the pharmacies advise to approach them first if you feel the need for treatment for the above ailments.

From 12pm today (11th August) until Monday afternoon (14th August), our computer systems will be down. This is to combine our computer systems with the former Dr Neilson & McGonagle practice.
We will be holding emergency surgeries only during this time. After 12pm today we will be unable to access your medical records or issue routine prescriptions. Our online booking services and text message reminders will also be unavailable during this time.
We ask that you only contact us if your enquiry is urgent. If you do find yourself short of essential medication during this time, please do contact us or approach your pharmacy who may be able to give you an emergency supply.
We thank you again for your support during our downtime and apologise for any delays and incovenience this may cause.

We would like to welcome patients from the former Dr Neilson & Dr McGonagle practice.
Over the next few weeks both sites will be busy merging records.
During this period we will require some IT downtime falling over the 11th & 14th of August. Just like when our servers were updated, we will be running emergency surgeries and emergency prescription requests only over those 2 days.
We will keep you informed here re the downtime as well as via email & text updates.
We appreciate your support during this time to allow for these changes to take place.
