PRESCRIPTION REQUESTSWe require at least 3 FULL WORKING DAYS to prepare your paper or electronic prescription as per NHS standard. This excludes procurement and dispensing time which is subject to separate clinical and safety standards.  You may not request items which are not on your repeat list due to local health policy restrictions in that items which are used occasionally and are available at a pharmacy must be purchased at a pharmacy, whether you are exempt or not from prescription charges. We encourage patients to register for SystmOnline prescription ordering. Just ask a member of our reception team.

CHECK-IN SCREEN - Our new patient self check-in screen is up and running. It takes just a few seconds to use and is an effective way to increase efficiency at the reception desk and improve the patient experience. The reception staff will be encouraging patients to use it when they arrive for their booked appointments.

PRESCRIPTION CHARGES - If you pay for your prescriptions the NHS increased the Prescription Charge by 20 pence from £8.80 to £9.00 for each medicine or appliance dispensed from 1st April 2019. The cost of the prescription pre payment certificates (PPC) has been frozen for another year. For more information please click HERE.

CHANGE OF SYSTEM FOR BOOKING GP APPOINTMENTS 

We have reviewed our appointment system and made the following changes from Monday 27 January 2020:

  1. The current open surgery system has changed. However, patients who feel they have an urgent medical need will still be seen or assessed by a GP on the day.
  2. Patients who want to book a routine GP appointment should be able to book with a GP within 2 weeks, and whenever possible with a GP of their choice.  Appointments will be made available from 08.00am each working day.
