REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

We will not issue repeat prescriptions for items that are not yet required.  Please order your repeat prescriptions as you would do normally.  


ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTIONS (ePS)

We are moving to electronic prescriptions with immediate effect. Some patients will have received a text message asking you to reply with your nominated pharmacy.  Please reply to that text as soon as possible if you have not already done so. 

If you collect a prescription in person, you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy for future medications.  

If you are not aware of informing the surgery of a nominated pharmacy for electronic prescriptions, please telephone the surgery and speak with a member of the admin team.

DELIVERING MEDICINES TO PATIENTS

Pharmacies are receiving an increase in the number of requests for delivery of medicines due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please only request delivery of medicines if you have no other option.  This will help ensure that pharmacies have the ability to deliver to those who are in need.  


FACE TO FACE CONTACTS/ TELEPHONE TRIAGE

In line with national and regional guidelines, all new appointment bookings will be for a telephone triage/consultation with the relevant clinician in the first instance.

All patients with existing appointments will receive a telephone triage call before attending the surgery.  If you do not receive a telephone call either before or during the morning/ afternoon of your appointment, please telephone the surgery - it may be that we need to update your contact details.

Depending on the nature of your appointment you may be asked to attend the surgery if clinically safe to do so.  Please do not attend the surgery for an appointment unless you have specifically been asked to do so by a clinician.  


ONLINE BOOKING

Following advice from NHS England we have currently suspended online booking appointments.  Please ring the surgery to make an appointment or to book a telephone consultation.  Thank you.
