Medicines you can buy without a Prescription - Over the Counter Medicines (OTC)

Following a public consultation across Hertfordshire we are no longer able to routinely write prescriptions for medicines that you can buy yourself; it is estimated that this costs £6 million a year just for Hertfordshire. These items include antifungal creams for athletes foot and thrush, antihistamines and other hay fever remedies (such as nasal sprays and eye drops), treatment for head lice, Indigestion remedies such as Gaviscon, Cold sore treatments, painkillers including Paracetamol, Ibuprofen and Co-Codamol.   For more information, there are leaflets at the surgery plus information on our website. Some of you may already have received a leaflet with your repeat medications if they include one or more of these items.

Patient Participation Group 

 

Your surgery needs you!!

 

MHHC has recently set up a Patient Participation Group (PPG). The aim of this group is to encourage patients to become actively involved with their surgery.

The PPG is made up of patient representatives who will work closely with the GPs to develop a common understanding of patients needs and then to address these needs in whatever way is possible.

 

The PPG has held several meetings and a Patient Representative Core Group (PRCG) has been established. The core members currently are:

 

Hugh Labram

Val Sargent

Catherine Scott

Kay Kerr

Peter Rook

Pamela Webb

Mihaly Saary

 

 

We are actively seeking to recruit more people.  In order to truly represent the practise population we need more representatives from the following groups-

Patients who are carers

Male patients

Patients with disabilities

Ethnic minority patients  

 

Your surgery needs you!!

 

 

 

patient surveyWe would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff.

To help us with this, we have set up a virtual patient participation representation group so that you can have your say. We have asked the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. The Patient Core Group contact you via email and keep their surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We still need more members from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, carers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
