Phone system Wednesday 11/12
Please note that the phone system will be down for a short period after 1pm on Wednesday 11 December. If you have a medical emergency please call 999, if you require urgent medical attention please call 111.
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 would therefore kindly remind you that the responsibility is yours to ensure that you submit your request for repeat medication in good time, before your medication runs out.
On-Line Appointments available
You can now book and cancel appointments with our doctors online. There is no need to come to the surgery to register as you can register online.
Please click the "Make Appointment" button below the surgery's address or click here to access the service.
Please allow one workday for your registration to be activated and you do not have to present ID documentation at the surgery to register.
We will add an online repeat prescription service later this year at which stage we will request you to provide proof of identity.

Vaccination of Pregnant Women against Whooping Cough
There has been an increase in the number of people diagnosed with whooping cough in the UK since mid 2011, and the current outbreak is the largest for ten years.
Babies will normally receive a vaccination against whooping cough, amongst other diseases, in the course of the routine vaccination programme which begins at 8 weeks after birth.
However to offer protection to babies during those first 8 weeks, when they may be at risk and vulnerable to a disease such as whooping cough, the government has introduced a vaccination programme, offering the whooping cough vaccination to pregnant women, after week 28 of their pregnancy. This will provide their baby with protection for that period from birth to 8 weeks or whenever the first vaccination takes place.
The best time to vaccinate is between 28-38 weeks of pregnancy.
If you are between 28-38 weeks pregnant we would urge you to telephone the surgery and make an appointment with the nurses as soon as possible to receive your vaccination. Please click here for more information.
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.
