Important Notice-Automated telephone prescriptions and appointments service
The option to order repeat prescriptions and make appointments on the automated telephone option is ceasing from 31 October 2017.
This is due to the costs of the system outweighing the benefits, given the relatively small number of users.
If you use this system please make alternative arrangements for ordering your prescriptions and making appointments. There are various options.
If you have not done so already, please register for “patientonline”, which enables you to book appointments and order repeat prescriptions over the internet.
All repeat prescriptions must be ordered either in writing, via our email email@example.com, or via patientonline. You can also ask a pharmacy of your choice to arrange to order your repeat mediation for you. If you would like any help with this please contact Reception.

Does your GP know you look after someone?
If you help a family member or friend because of their physical, mental ill health, frailty, disability or substance misuse…….then you are a carer!
For more details please ask at Reception.
Did you know you can now order repeat medication on-line with the practice. You are now able to order your repeat medication on-line, direct to the practice over an encrypted, secure link. There is still a need to allow a maximum of 48 hours before you collect the prescription or you could save time by nominating a pharmacy to receive electronically. For more details please ask at Reception about this service and for registration.
