*PRESCRIPTIONS CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 24.06.20*
With the current situation we would prefer prescriptions are ordered online wherever possible.
For patients already signed up for online services, please order your prescription online via your online record.
If you are not registered for online services you can email requests through to our dedicated prescriptions email address; email@example.com
If you are unable to email us we are currently accepting prescription requests over the phone after 11am only.
We must request that this method should only be used by those without internet access as the phones are very busy.
This service is only temporary to assist those who are shielding. From 1st August we will no longer accept prescription requests over the telephone. Patients with no access to the internet may now drop their paper requests into the surgery.

If you are on regular medication, you will have a computerised repeat prescription slip with instructions on how to order at the bottom.
Unfortunately, we do not encourage prescription requests over the telephone, it blocks the phonelines and can lead to errors.
To order your prescription please indicate clearly the items you require and either post the request us or hand in to the surgery. There is a red post box just inside the front door.
You can also order your prescription online by signing up for online access to your medical record, please see the Online Services section of our website for more details.
Please allow 2 working days for the prescription to be issued.
Please do not order your prescription until it is due, stock piling of medication is a major problem within the NHS and your prescription will not be issued early without good reason.
If you would like to collect your medication directly from a pharmacy, please contact the surgery and let us know your chosen chemist and we will indicate this on your record. Any prescriptions from then on will be sent to your allocated pharmacy after signing – please allow extra time for this.
If you require your medication to be delivered to your home this must be arranged directly with your pharmacy.
Are you sure you need all your MEDICATIONS?
Sometimes we end up staying on medications even when they’re not required.
Medications taken to relieve symptoms, for example for pain, poor sleep, anxiety or depression are often not effective in the long term.
If you would like to find out whether all your medications are helpful or necessary, please see the leaflet below to arrange an appointment with a Doctor.
