COVID 19 - Medication Information 

As a practice, we recognise that supply of medication is crucial at this difficult time and that it is natural to feel anxious about any disruption. We are assured that no significant shortages are expected, and there are plans in place to maintain supplies. It's important that patients only order what they need at the usual time. There is no need to stockpile or order earlier than usual. This will help limit the pressure on our reception staff, dispensary and community pharmacies. If you are self-isolating, another adult can collect medication on your behalf - it doesn't need to be a relative. We will update patients as soon as possible if there any changes to prescription systems. Thank you for your co-operation

Research

Canterbury Medical Practice is research active. We are currently taking part in National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) portfolio and other high quality research studies. Research if part of NHS work, giving patients better access to possible benefits research brings. Last year, over 600,000 NHS patients chose to take part in clinical research. Thanks to those patients, we are learning more all the time about how to deal with a whole range of medical conditions that will improve lives.

During your visit you may be invited to take part in one of the research studies we are running or we may have written to you to tell you about a research study you might be interested in taking part in.

You will always receive clear information about what taking part in a research study would involve. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and obtain further details about a study.

You are under no obligation to participate in any research project. Your care and your relationship with your doctor or nurse will not be affected in any way if you decided not to take part in a research study.

 By taking part in these studies, we hope to help improve care for our patients in the future.
