Shared Decision Making

Making decisions about your care with your doctor or nurse (shared decision making).

When you visit your doctor’s surgery you will often find that there are decisions to be made about your health and the treatments that might be available to you. This includes when you are choosing between different types of treatment or different ways of managing any condition(s) you have.  When these decisions are made it is important that you are part of that process, so that you are able to come to the best decisions based on what is important to you

For my information, please see the Shared Decision Making page under further information located on the right hand side of the page.

Clinical Pharmacist

All of our patients who are on repeat medication are expected to have medication reviews at least once a year. These can now be done by our new practice pharmacist, Karen. If you have more than 7 medications on your repeat prescription, please book a double appointment.
