Coronavirus (COVID-19) – Update for patients
We are experiencing an extreme increase in workload following the coronavirus restrictions together with staff being off sick or self-isolating – this clearly affects our ability to maintain our service. Please be patient with staff who are doing their very best.
We are receiving very large numbers of requests for medication – much more than we would normally expect. Many requests are a long way ahead of their normal repeat date. Please DO NOT order medication too soon and please do not stockpile. We are unable to provide more than the normal month’s supply. Patients who are ordering too much or too early are putting the health of others at risk as this is affecting suppliers’ ability to provide adequate stocks for all.
In order to complete your orders please allow 4-5 days’ notice to enable our team to complete all requests. Telephone requests can now only be made from 9am to 1pm each day. Please do not ask for prescriptions that have not been prescribed for a long while. We can only provide your regular medication. We are unable to provide Paracetamol.
If you are able to order online it is much appreciated - our staff shortages mean that answering the phone to take medication requests will take them away from completing the orders.
We are endeavouring to restrict the number of patients visiting the surgery to minimise risk to other patients and the team. If you have an urgent problem you will be offered a telephone triage appointment with a doctor. They will determine if a face to face appointment is required and arrange if appropriate. Non urgent routine checks will be cancelled to minimise the chance of infection to yourself and others.
If you, or a member of your household, have symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID 19) such as a high temperature and a new persistent cough – please stay at home and manage your illness there. The household should remain in isolation for 14 days. If you are getting worse you should contact 111 – DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY
Your support would be greatly appreciated at this difficult time.
We have enabled the prescription ordering module on our integrated online service so that our patients can access their medical records, book/cancel GP appointments and order repeat medications all from ONE system.
Our dispensing team will provide you with the details on how to use the new system. Please bring a piece of photo ID with you to enable us to confirm your identity when setting up your account. This is because the new system is directly linked to your medical record and the Practice must take necessary steps to ensure that access is being given to the correct person for data protection reasons.
Alternatively, you can download a copy of the form here along with the information leaflet and bring the application form along to the Practice with your ID when you next attend.

Patient Leaflet - Online Access
We require 48 hours notice for repeat prescriptions excluding Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays and a 28 day supply is issued
Medicines are supplied from the surgery for patients living more than one mile from a pharmacy. We cannot make up prescriptions issued elsewhere except from a dentist or the hospital and then only for patients registered at the practice.
Payment must be cash or cheque backed by a cheque guarantee card.
We have a computerised prescribing system and your regular medication is printed on the slip given to you with your repeat medication. We require 48 hours notice for repeat prescriptions excluding Saturdays and Sundays and a 28 day supply is issued.
You can request a repeat directly from the website or present your repeat prescription side slip in person or by post. You can contact the Dispensary team on 01359 253701, however, they are unable to take calls between 12:30 - 2:30pm. Finally you may subscribe to the repeat prescribing scheme.
Sometimes you will be asked to see a doctor or nurse before any more repeat prescriptions are given. This is to ensure that the medication is still the right one for you. If you have difficulty collecting your medicines from the surgery we are able to leave your medication for collection at village pick up points in exceptional circumstances.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
