Routine Appointments

At our clinic, we prioritise your health and well-being. For routine appointments, such as regular check-ups, prescription renewals, or non-urgent consultations, we follow NHS guidelines to ensure timely and effective care. Please book in advance either online or by phone. We strive to accommodate your schedule and provide the best possible care. Remember, these appointments are not for urgent issues, which require immediate attention.

Cancelling Appointments

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so as early as possible to free up the slot for others in need. You can easily cancel by calling our reception or replying to the text you receive. This helps us manage our schedules more effectively and ensures timely care for all patients. Remember, every appointment counts.

Prescriptions

At our GP surgery, managing your prescriptions is a seamless and efficient process. We handle repeat prescriptions, medication reviews, and adjustments based on your ongoing health needs. Our team collaborates closely with local pharmacies to ensure your medication is prepared and available when you need it. For new prescriptions or changes to your current medication, consultations can be arranged with a GP to discuss the best options for your health. Trust us to provide comprehensive and personalised prescription care.

How do I order a repeat prescription?

Ordering your repeat prescription is straightforward and convenient with our online services. Simply log into the NHS App or our clinic's online system to request your medication. Ensure you do so well in advance of running out, allowing at least 72 hours for processing. Your prescription can then be sent directly to your chosen pharmacy, ready for collection or delivery, ensuring continuity in your medication regime.

How do I submit a query about my prescription?

If you have any questions or concerns about your medication, don't hesitate to get in touch. You can submit your query through the NHS App, our clinic's online portal, or by calling our reception. Our skilled pharmacists or GPs will provide you with the information and guidance you need to ensure safe and effective use of your medication. We're here to support you with expert advice and clarity on your prescriptions.

What can a pharmacy help me with?

Pharmacies play a crucial role in your healthcare journey. Beyond dispensing prescriptions, they offer expert advice on various over-the-counter medications, help manage long-term conditions, provide flu vaccinations, and conduct medicine reviews. For minor ailments, your pharmacist can be the first point of contact, offering quick, confidential advice without the need for an appointment. Utilize your local pharmacy's knowledge and services to support your health and well-being.

Who's who in your practice?

We aim to improve the understanding of the different professionals working in a general practice, including the skills, experience and benefits that different roles bring to patient care. Services in general practice and the community are being transformed to make it easier for patients to access a wider range of help from general practice, closer to home by phone or online. When you contact your practice for an appointment, you’ll often expect to speak directly with a GP in the first instance, even if that may not be the most appropriate person to help you. In addition to the excellent non-clinical support staff, the general practice team has expanded to include a wide range of healthcare professionals who work alongside GPs and nurses to ensure patients receive the care they need as quickly as possible. This includes clinical pharmacists, physiotherapists, physician associates, social prescribing link workers and many more. Over the last few years general practice has gone through many changes, with more than 19,000 staff being recruited nationally. These new roles are part of the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) and have already made a real impact in general practice and in the community delivering care to patients.
Every GP practice is different, each offering different healthcare professionals who can support delivery of your care, so you access the most appropriate care and services from the right healthcare professional.
