Important Drug Information

Dear Patients,

In October 2018, the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) recommended that pregabalin and gabapentin should be controlled as class C Drugs.

Under Uk law, Gabapentin and Pregabalin will now be reclassified as Class C Controlled substances from April 2019 to reduce the growing number of deaths associated with its misuse. 

This change means we are only able to supply these medications one month at a time, and we will no longer be able to electronically send this prescription to the pharmacy for patients who require this medication

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Telephone System Experiencing Technical Issues

Dear patients, 

Please note that our telephone system is currently going through some technical issues and you might not be able to get through to a member of staff. We are working to resolve these issues and implement a new telephone system as soon as possible.

If you are unable to contact us by telephone, you can email souccg.listerpractice@nhs.net and we will reply as quickly as we can. 

Apologies for any convenience. 

Queens Road Surgery Smears Awareness Event: After Event Report with pictures

Queens Road Surgery hosted a successful #smearforsmear event on Thursday 7 February 2019. (See pictures from the event below) 

The event was well attended, mixed with members of the public, registered patients and surgery staff. Everyone who attended was able to partake in interactive workshops and talks to learn about the dangers of cervical cancer and the importance of having a smear test. A member of Jo’s Trust was also present to answer questions and offer advice and support to visitors.

The event has already helped to increase smear uptake in the practice and also provided a great platform to raise awareness for the #smearforsmear campaign and the work that Jo’s Trust do. You can find out more about Jo’s Trust here >>>
