A MESSAGE REGARDING PRESCRIPTION ORDERING

Our GP practices and Community Pharmacies are working incredibly hard to keep their services operating and medicine supply flowing in this extremely challenging time

Medicines are NOT in short supply. Please only order the medicines that you need from your GP practice. Do not order all of your medicines automatically every time. Please tell the practice which pharmacy you wish to collect medicines from. GPs and Community Pharmacies will work together to ensure you get your medicines when they are due.  Pharmacies are extremely busy, please allow at least FIVE days from ordering your medicine to collection from the Community Pharmacy.

If you have any COVID-19 symptoms (new continuous cough, fever, shortness of breath) or had contact with someone with corona virus DO NOT go to your Community Pharmacy. Stay at home and self-isolate.  Please ask someone else to collect your medicines.


Hello from Marnock Medical Group, we hope you are well.  

Recently it has become apparent that being overweight puts people at higher risk from coronavirus.  We understand that this message may not be relevant to all our patients, but if there is a second spike we would like to have tried to reduce the numbers of those who might be at risk as much as possible.  

 If you are not sure if this could apply to you please complete this BMI form.  During the process it will let you know what your BMI is which can let you know if you are over the recommended healthy weight.  

Once completed, you are given the option to be directed to NHS weight management resources if this is something you are interested in. 

We hope this information is helpful to you.
