Probus Memory Café

 

A Member of Cornwall Memory Café Network

Due to the current guidelines from the Government and the situation with regards to Coronavirus Covid-19, the Memory Cafe is postponed until further notice.

PROBUS MEMORY CAFÉ – Volunteers and Committee Members required .

Due to the Pandemic , the Probus Memory café had to stop having its fortnightly meetings in March 2020. However, it may now be possible to start planning for a resumption of these rewarding, get -togethers for individuals and their carers later this year.

For a variety of reasons, new Volunteers and committee members are urgently needed to lead and restart the Café meetings. Anyone wishing to take on a new worthwhile challenge and contribute ideas and enthusiasm and welcome people with memory loss back for some much missed social engagement please do contact us for more information.

There are funds and a good stock of equipment already in place.

For further information, please contact Claire on promemcf@gmail.com

Hand Delivery

Prescription requests are made using the prescription counterfoil* provided with each prescription. Please clearly tick the items that are required. This slip can be placed in the post box provided just inside the main front doors at Probus or Grampound Surgery during working hours, or placed in the post box outside of either premises (on the right hand wall of front door at Probus) outside of working hours.

Internet

Order your medication by downloading the NHS App

or

Ack the Reception team for an application form for SystmOnline

Email

 Email your requests to prescriptions@probussurgery.co.uk As well as your medication request please include your Name, Date of Birth, First line of your address and where you would like to collect.


 Monthly Prescriptions

Please ensure that you do not run out of medication by ordering your repeat prescription in plenty of time. We require at least five working days' notice (not including weekends). During busy periods, such as before and after Bank Holidays, we would appreciate being given extra time. However, please do not over-stock or "stock up" on medicines.

Co-Ordination of Monthly Prescriptions

The dispensers would welcome the opportunity to liaise with any patient to co-ordinate their medications so that they can all be ordered regularly once a month. Having different medications due at different times of the month is time-consuming for patients and their carers and often necessitates more than one request and trip to the surgery premises every month.
