Repeat prescriptions: You are now able to choose where we send your scripts electronically to for dispensing. You must contact the pharmacy/appliance provider and make it known to them that you wish to nominate them to dispense your medication/appliances. They will activate your nomination. The service is known as the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). Please be aware that your script will then be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy unless you ask us to print and keep it at the surgery for collection. We will contact you should we not be able to send your script to your nominated pharmacy. Please click here for more information.PLEASE ALLOW 48 HOURS (i.e. 2 working days) for us to process your repeat prescriptions; unless your review date has passed and/or you are requesting medication that is not on your current repeat; in these instances it may take significantly longer. We process over 200,000 repeat prescription requests each year and will unfortunately not be able to issue repeat prescriptions on the day they are received, as that slows down the process for other patients.
We have launched the Friends and Family Test survey which you can complete on this site by following the following this link or at the surgery, please ask at reception for a response form. For further information please follow this link.

GP contract changes. From April 2014 all 75 year and older patients must have their own named doctor. We have always adhered to the "named doctor" principle. All patients at the practice have their own named doctor, if you are unsure about who your named doctor is please check with the reception Team.
Text reminding service: We now send text messages to remind patients of their appointments, the first when the appointment is made and the second, 48 hours before the appointment. Please ensure that we have your mobile number should you wish to receive these reminders.
Please ensure we have an up to date phone number for you- preferably a mobile if you have one. Complete the on line 'contact details' form, or call in at reception to tell us.
Patients requiring prescriptions for the Contraceptive Pill are kindly reminded that they must allow 48 hours, following their consultation with a practice nurse, before they will be able to collect their prescriptions as these are issued by one of the GPs and not by the practice nurses.
