Patient feedback and complaints

We welcome comments about our practice and the health services we provide. Anyone who is registered as a patient at our health care practice in Coventry or who has received treatment from us can make a complaint. Where criticism is made we will respond to the complainant and, where necessary, put right what was wrong.

We aim to give the best possible standard of service, both clinical and administrative, at all times. However, there may be times when you feel this has not been achieved.

We operate a NHS complaints procedure to deal with comments, suggestions and complaints about the service we provide. All staff are trained in this procedure and will be happy to give you further information.

We will try to address all your concerns promptly, provide you with an explanation and discuss any action that may be needed to prevent a future occurrence.

Prescriptions

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.00
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

  • Surgical bra: £29.50
  • Abdominal or spinal support: £44.55
  • Stock modacrylic wig: £72.80
  • Partial human hair wig: £192.85
  • Full bespoke human hair wig: £282.00

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

Repeat Prescriptions and NHS POD - Prescription Ordering Service

With effective from 1 October 2019 we will not be accepting requests for repeat prescriptions. Patients will be asked to use the Coventry Prescription Ordering Service (POD) for all repeats. This not only frees up staff time but it ensures all prescription requests are handled consistently. The POD is now used by all GP practices in Coventry, Rugby, Bedworth and Nuneaton.

As a reminder:

NHS Prescription ordering direct (POD) service is the easy way for you to order your repeat prescription! Patients are advised to:

  • Please check your medication cupboard before ordering
  • Order your prescription when you have 5 days of medication left
  • If you have a build up of medication please let the POD know so that they can adjust the quantities, so that everything falls in line
  • Please do not order ‘just in case’. If you need the medication in future then you will still be able to request it
  • Let the POD know if you have stopped taking any of your medicines

Please click here to view the POD leaflet for more detail about the service.

PATIENTS WHO ARE REGISTERED FOR ONLINE PRESCRIPTION ORDERING WILL STILL BE ABLE TO USE THIS FACILITY

Electronic Prescription Service

This practice uses EPS (Electronic Prescription Service) which means your prescription can be delivered electronically to your preferred pharmacy. The POD Prescription Ordering Service will ask you which pharmacy you wish to nominate, once this has been set up, ALL prescriptions will automatically be sent to that pharmacy for your convenience.

You will only be able to request a result, over the phone, on Tuesdays between 12:00noon-14:00pm when a Patient Services Navigator will be available for this purpose. Our staff will not give out results at any other time. When you ring, the phone system will clearly remind you that results will not be given over the phone at other times.

If your result needs to be communicated to you urgently WE WILL CONTACT YOU, so please make sure we have up-to-date contact details on our system. If we do not contact you this does not mean your test results are NORMAL
