We will also welcome Tom Humphreys, Nurse Practitioner to the surgery at the end of August.

 

Working with Local Clinicians

In common with most medical practices in North & Mid Devon we work from a limited list or ‘formulary’ of drugs and dressings. Local hospital consultants work from the same formulary. Prescribing exclusively from this formulary means that we use drugs with which we are familiar and whose benefits, dose range and potential side effects are known to us.

Drugs are not excluded from the formulary on the basis of cost but new drugs are only introduced when they have been extensively tried and tested and proved to be effective and safe. Only under exceptional circumstances will we prescribe drugs not in the formulary, usually because of recommendation by a specialist.

As part of the NHS campaign towards generic prescribing, you may notice a difference in the shape or colour of your medication. The actual medicine is exactly the same, only the company that makes it has changed. If you have any worries about this, please contact dispensary on 01769 580295.
