Patient Forum
We are always looking for more patients to join our Patient Forum Group. For further information please contact Mandy Lawrence, Practice Manager, or click on "Further Information Patient Group" on the home page. 

Named Accountable GP
The NHS standard contract for 2015/16 requires that all patients, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP. The named, accountable GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the practice provides for you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.

Change of Telephone Number
It is very important that you let us know if you change your telephone number.
You can do this by completing:
* the on line change of details form at the foot of this page
* the change of details form available from reception

Alternatively you can include the details on your repeat prescription request.

You can collect the prescription 2 working days later (excluding weekends and bank holidays) in the following way:

1. You can collect the prescription from reception during opening times.

2. We will be happy to post it back to you if you give us a stamped addressed envelope along with your request.

3. You can have the prescription delivered to you by Rowlands (formerly Renton’s) or ABC chemists; however you will need to make arrangements with the chemist.

WE CANNOT TAKE REQUESTS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS OVER THE TELEPHONE

DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS OF GETTING YOUR PRESCRIPTION IF YOU ARE ON REGULAR TREATMENT?

  • Batch Prescriptions
    If your medicines are stable and you are happy to go to the same chemist to collect your medication - ask your doctor for a batch prescription. Your doctor could give you 6 months or 1 year of medication for your chemist to dispense to you every 1-2 months (so you won't need to keep revisiting the practice!).
  • Chemist Service
    Many chemists will order your prescriptions regularly for you. They can also collect the prescription form from us so that all you do is collect your medication from the chemist. You will need to contact your local chemist to arrange this service.
  • Delivery Service
    Many chemists will order the prescription from us, collect it from us and deliver the medication to you if you are housebound or have difficulty getting out. You will need to contact your local chemist to arrange this service.
