The Online Booking service now opens from 08:15 in the morning Monday - Friday.
All our Patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. We listen when Patients make us aware of their preference as to which GP that is. If you are registering as a new patient you will see an option to choose, you will also receive a text message giving you the GP’s name, alternatively you can contact the practice if you wish to know who this is.
If you need a regular supply of medication, your doctor will print a repeat prescription sheet for you. You can then indicate on the page which medicine(s) you need and either hand in the page to reception or send it with a stamped addressed envelope.
Alternatively you can use the online/Digital TV service. You will need to complete an additional registration process to use this service, please ask reception for more details.
Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions are not accepted.
Your prescription will be ready after 14:00 if we receive the request before 11:00, or the next working day (with the exception of Friday).
The doctor may ask you to make an appointment to review your medication before a prescription is issued. Repeat prescriptions are not normally given for certain items, e.g. anti-depressants, sleeping tablets, the contraceptive pill, some asthma medication etc.
Once you are 19 you will not automatically be eligible for free prescriptions. You can apply for a low-income exemption certificate by filling in form HC1. This form is available at the health centre, Student Welfare, Post Offices or the Social Security. If you have frequent medications and are not entitled to free prescriptions you may want to consider buying a prepayment certificate. Ask at a pharmacy or Post Office for details.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 24 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
