PRESCRIPTION REQUESTSWe require 2 FULL WORKING DAYS to prepare your paper or electronic prescription as per NHS standard. This excludes procurement and dispensing time which is subject to separate clinical and safety standards.  You may not request items which are not on your repeat list due to local health policy restrictions in that items which are used occasionally and are available at a pharmacy must be purchased at a pharmacy, whether you are exempt or not from prescription charges. We encourage patients to register for SystmOnline prescription ordering. Just ask a member of our reception team.

Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.

This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP in the Practice. However seeing your usual GP will maintain continuity of care.

We have now allocated all patients to a named GP. New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be informed of their named GP within 21 days of registration. Patients can check at any time who their named GP is by asking a member of staff.

If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change. If you are aged 75 or over, have not had a consultation in the last 12 months and would like a health check please book an appointment with the healthcare assistant.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes wherever possible.  Please contact reception to request the change.
