Coronovirus (Covid-19) Alert

Shielding - Protecting those who are most vulnerable. The Government are writing directly to people this week (23rd March) whom they deem to be "vulnerable" depending on their medical background. The letter will advise these individuals to self isolate, in order to protect themselves and the population. Those affected will receive a letter in the post. Please refrain from contacting the surgery about this as we have no further information at this stage. We are working hard to continue to ensure the safety of our patients and thank you for your understanding at this time. More info here.

Please do not come to the surgery if you do not have an appointment.

This is in the interest of patient safety with the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. We are now operating a full triage service before you are able to enter the building.

This is a pandemic and guidance from the government is changing on a daily basis. Please go to the daily government public health information for the latest update.

Currently we are working on the basis that if you have a high temperature or a fever OR a new continuous cough, please refer to 111.NHS.uk to follow their guidance. If you don’t have access to the internet please telephone 111, we anticipate there may be delays in answering.

To protect others, DO NOT GO TO A GP SURGERY, PHARMACY OR HOSPITAL.

To access our services:

Please complete an E-consult which will be passed to a clinician to triage.  (Click on “Get an eConsult response within 24 hours” on the right hand side of the webpage.)

You can email us at enquiries.mayfield@nhs.net

If you do not have access to the internet or if you don’t fulfil the criteria, in bold above, to contact 111 and believe you need to be seen urgently today please phone the surgery. We are expecting larger delays in answering than usual - please call 01803 495400.

Prescriptions:

We are suspending paper prescription requests until further notice to avoid spreading the virus.  Please order your prescription electronically.  You can do this via 1. Patient Access, 2. NHS App or 3. Email us at prescriptions.mayfield@nhs.net

If you have to stay at home because of Coronavirus, this is the Isolation Note for your employer.

Many thanks for your understanding and cooperation to help us protect our patients and staff

What our local PHARMACISTS can do for you

We have a late night pharmacy which is open 7 days a week and our pharmacy opening hours are:

 

Monday to Friday  8:00am - 8.00pm

Saturday  9.00am - 6.00pm

About the pharmacy

We are a friendly family-owned independent business which opened as a 100 hour pharmacy in 2008 based in Mayfield Medical Centre.

We are delighted to offer a full and comprehensive range of pharmacy services at times that suit you. The late night opening 7 days a week means that picking up your prescription is so much easier to pick up in the evenings and weekends when you park in the surgery car park free of charge to pick up your medication.

Medication

We stock and dispense a full range of medication. On that rare occasion when we do not have an item in stock, for example, an infrequently prescribed or unusual item we pride ourselves at being able to source the medication as soon as we possibly can. If this is an ongoing prescription we can then order it in for you the next time.

We can go through your prescribed medication with you, explain what they are for, how to take them and advise regarding any possible side effects. This is called a Medication Usage Review.

We also have a small retail area which stocks a wide range of items from plasters, pain killers and bandages, to toiletry such as soaps, shower gels and deodorants to infant feeding bottles and even flypaper.

Advice

We can advise regarding common ailments such as coughs and colds, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea, hay fever, pain relief, vitamins and allergies, contraceptive services such as 'the morning after pill' and review asthma inhaler techniques. We can also advise you whether it would be appropriate to contact your GP or Devon Doctors if out of hours.

We also offer

  • Free collection of prescriptions from all Paignton Surgeries.
