Please order prescriptions in advance from Monday – Friday. Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be ready and if possible, allow extra time for Bank Holidays.
We will contact you from time to time to see the doctor or one of our nurses for a review of your medication. This is to check you are receiving the best medication for your condition. For some patients this will be at least annually.
Your prescription can be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice to be dispensed and collected. If you would like to do this or would like any of the local pharmacies to collect and deliver your prescription, please contact us.
They can be ordered by post or by handing in the list attached to your prescription with the items marked. If you have registered for online access, prescriptions can be ordered when you log in. This is a faster, environment friendly and our preferred method.
Not Registered yet? Don’t worry, its simple and fast.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible – at least 6 weeks before you travel – as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

What is Social Prescribing?
At times we feel ‘unwell’, ‘out of sorts’ or ‘below par’ and a medical prescription is not the answer. What we are lacking is company, interests, or a change of scene to make us feel connected and motivated. Or perhaps we need counselling or more exercise to keep our bodies strong and our minds stimulated.
Our health and wellbeing starts with taking care of ourselves as best as we can.
- What do you need to help you feel more included?
- What could you do to feel happier in yourself?
- Do you want to make new friends?
- Are you aware of what is going on in your local area?
- Where are the exercise classes or social groups you could join?
That’s where social prescribing comes in!
Our free Social Prescribing service can provide you with a personal Health and Wellbeing Partner who will help you identify one or more activities to improve your wellbeing and support you in starting it.
How does it work?

There are occasions when patients need to be assessed by the doctor which might involve intimate examinations.
The practice is committed to putting patients at ease whenever possible, and if you wish a chaperone to be present during your examination please do not hesitate to ask the doctor.
Trust is important in the relationship between GP and patient and we would, at all times, wish you to feel able to ask for a chaperone, should you require.
