PRESCRIPTION REQUESTSWe require at least 3 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.

When We Are Closed

If you need medical assistance between 18:30 and 08:00 Monday to Friday or at weekends and Bank Holidays please dial 111. Your problem will be triaged and if necessary you will be given advice and treatment by either a doctor or nurse with specialist training.

To find your local NHS Walk-In Centre you can speak to 111 or look online at www.nhs.uk. To locate a pharmacy out of hours, you can either use the online ‘find pharmacy services’ via www.nhs.uk or speak to someone at the 111 service.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
