Please be aware that from next Monday 13th December we will be offering less routine appointments for non-urgent work to concentrate on vaccinating as many of you as we can, with the Covid booster. This is in accordance with the government guidelines. If you have not had this already, you will be contacted very soon.  If you are over 40yrs or in the at risk category, you can phone the surgery for an appointment now on 07387 101728. We will now be running clinics every week right through until at least the end of March 2022.

Please still contact us with any lumps, bumps or serious concerns as we will remain open for all other urgent needs.  We are committed to continuing meeting all your health needs, so please do not put off any concerns and do still phone the surgery.  We just wanted to warn you that some work has been postponed as it is not as important as vaccinating all our patients and there will be no risk to anyone's health.  We do hope you understand.  Corinne Nightingale - Practice Manager

Dear Patient



Re: Repeat Electronic Dispensing Prescriptions Service


Due to the current circumstances and pressures on the NHS, NHS England has advised to change the way you currently order your regular medication. Your GP or healthcare practitioner will issue a repeat dispensing prescription which will have a number of prescription issues on it e.g. a minimum of 3 months of medication to be collected monthly. This “batch” of prescriptions will be sent electronically to your existing nominated pharmacy. This means that you simply collect your regular medication from your usual pharmacy without having to order it each month.


If you wish to change your pharmacy later; you can ask the new pharmacy to set your nomination with them. Your regular medication will then be available at that pharmacy.


When your pharmacy supplies your last electronic repeat prescription, they will inform you. You will then have to contact your GP practice to ask for another set of electronic repeat prescriptions. You may need to be seen for a review before another batch of electronic repeat dispensing prescription is authorised.


It is important to let your pharmacist know if you are taking any other medicines or if your medical condition changes. If you have any questions about your medicines, ask at the pharmacy, they will be happy to help you.


If you consent to this, you do not need to do anything as the practice has set this up for you using your current preferred pharmacy, however if you feel this is not suitable or you have any concerns or questions regarding this change please contact the surgery as soon as possible.


For further information and a step by step guide as to how this works please refer to the next page.


Should you have any questions or concerns please do contact your surgery.



Kind Regards


Corinne Nightingale – Practice Manager
