HELP US TO HELP YOU!

We often experience a high demand for our services, particularly in the mornings, and especially on Mondays. We would very much appreciate your assistance in trying to manage this and help to free the telphone lines for other important matters. If you need to order a prescription please try to avoid ringing in the mornings, escpecially on a Monday.

We have a dedicated prescription line (01432 265269) which is available 9am - 1pm & 2pm - 4pm Monday to Friday. You may also wish to consider one of the following alternative ways to order your repeat prescriptions: 

1. Order on-line using the link above to online services 

2. Complete the right hand side of your prescription and deposit it in the wall mounted prescription box at the surgery.

Please remember to allow 2 working days before collecting your prescription.

Thank you for your assistance.

 

 

COVID-19 Guidance on isolating and shielding

 A very small number of our patients will already have been identified as being high risk. They will have received a text message or letter from the NHS. Those patients should stay at home for 12 weeks.

NHS Digital are currently working to identify the additional patients who will also be advised to stay home for 12 weeks. We anticipate this information imminently but currently we are not able to confirm which patients will fall into this group.  

Until we receive further guidance, we are unable to issue supportive letters regarding potential high-risk patients. We are receiving many requests from patients about their individual risks if they were to contract coronavirus. Some are being asked to contact us by their employer.

As a practice with 8,500 patients, many with a long-standing health condition, we simply cannot provide a risk assessment for each individual and it would impact on our capacity to provide care to our patients.  

Guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK is available here

Guidance on shielding and protecting people who are clinically extremely vulnerable is available here
