Noticeboard

NOTICE TO OUR CALLINGTON PATIENTS:

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Rhiannon Starks is joining the Practice on Wednesday 6th June.  However, we regretfully announce that Dr. Rob Adams is leaving Tamar Valley Health in June as he is re-locating to another part of the country. We wish

Dr. Adams all the very best for the future. We are actively recruiting for this post.

If Dr. Adams is your ‘usual’ GP then you will be advised who your new ‘usual’ GP will be once they have been appointed. Until this time you can continue to see any of the GPs or regular locum GPs at Callington.

NOTICE TO OUR GUNNISLAKE PATIENTS:

Dr. Michelle Raspa will be joining the Practice on Thursday 7th June 2018. 

If Dr. Prior was your ‘usual’ GP before he left you may now have

Dr. Raspa as your ‘usual’ GP. Reception can advise you if this is the case after the above date.

Prescription Ordering

A minimum of three clear working days is required to process all repeat prescription requests. ‘Working days’ are classed as Monday to Friday (excluding all Bank Holidays). 

So for example, if you would like your medication to be ready on a (non-Bank Holiday) Monday afternoon, you will need to order it on Wednesday morning at the latest.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
