PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS:  Please note that it takes 3 working days to process repeat medication due to the number of requests we receive. In the interest of patient safety the clinical risk associated with accepting repeat prescription requests over the telephone needs to be limited. The easiest and safest way for you to order your medication is online. Please ask a member of staff about SystmOnline.


DISPENSARY QUEUES: Our peak period in Dispensary for collection of medication is on Friday afternoons. Please collect earlier in the day or collect on another day wherever possible.

There is a wealth of information on NHS Choices about carers and caring. Below are some links into the site that we hope you will find useful.

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
