*** NEW ***  Introducing the Health M8 Monitor

The Health M8 is an innovative addition to Boroughbury Medical Centre and can be found in the downstairs waiting room.

The Health M8 measures blood pressure, height and weight (BMI).

All patients are welcome to come and use the new machine – it is operated by collecting a token from reception.

Many of our patients will be invited to come and record their blood pressure on the Health M8 in their own time rather than wait for an appointment with a clinician – this prevents delays for you and frees up much needed clinical time for acutely unwell patients   Find out more...

Repeat Dispensed Prescriptions

For our patients whose medication remains stable we are now doing doing RD (Repeat Dispensed) prescriptions. This means your GP will issue 6 months worth of medication at once which will wait at your pharmacy to be dispensed monthly.

If you notice that your prescription states it is not due until a future date (i.e. February 2017) this means your prescriptions are all ready at the pharmacy and you will not need to request them monthly.

Not able to attend for your appointment?

BMC DNA Policy is intended to free up more appointments and make them available for use, click for more details

In our busy Practice, appointments are extremely valuable.  Every week we have huge numbers of patients who fail to attend for an appointment.  This is a waste of resources and means that the appointment could have gone to someone else who genuinely needed it.  Help us to offer the best service possible by cancelling your appointment in plenty of time if you no longer need it or cannot make it.  Patients who repeatedly fail to attend appointments will be removed from our list.
