Noticeboard

New GP

We would like to welcome Dr Rukshana Steven to the practice.  She joined the team on 1st December 2016 as a GP Partner.

Flu Vaccinations

Flu vaccinations are still available to all patients over the age of 65, patients under 65 with a chronic condition such as heart problems, respiratory problems, kidney disease.  All 2-5 year olds are also entitled to the flu vaccination free of charge.  If your child missed the vaccination at school then the practice is able to offer a 'catch-up' programme.  Please contact your surgery to make an appointment with the practice nurse for this.

Minor Illness

This is the time of year when coughs, colds and sore throats are very common.  If you have a minor illness such as this please see the section on the right-hand side of the website for some advice on how to treat this at home.  Usually a mild viral illness will improve without treatment in about a week.  If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or worsen then your local pharmacist can help or you can phone the GP for some advice.

Cancelling your Appointment

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Telephone Advice
You may phone at any time to request to or speak to a doctor. You will be asked by the receptionist to give brief details. These will then be passed on to the doctor who will phone back if appropriate.

 

Repeat Prescriptionsgreenpills

If you need regular medication the doctor will arrange this through the practice computer system. Please ask a member of staff for details.

 

If you require repeat prescriptions, please allow at least 48 hours for your prescriptions to be processed.

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made using the order form printed with every repeat prescription and should be handed into the surgery or sent by post. If you wish, prescriptions will be returned to you by post, but please enclose a stamped, self addressed envelope with the repeat request. You may also order repeat prescriptions via this website.

Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone as errors can occur in verbal communication. You should see your doctor at least once a year to discuss your medication. Urgent requests for prescriptions cannot be dealt with during surgery times when both doctors and staff are busy as there is potential for errors to occur.  This is due to the volume of prescriptions we receive each day and there are also medical legal reasons why doctors cannot be disturbed during their surgery.

You may request medication which is not on your repeat medication list either by writing this on your repeat medication slip, a special request form available at reception or by using our online service. In this case one of the doctors will consider whether there is enough information to decide whether the medication is appropriate, and if it is then a prescription may be issued. Medication requested in this way will NOT be issued automatically however and patients are asked to check with reception to see whether their request has been issued or not.
