Noticeboard

The NHS is now offering vaccinations to people under 50. These will be offered to people by age, starting with those aged 45 and over.

 Getting an appointment

If you would like to book an appointment, please visit www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. This will tell you what the current age limit is and allow you to book an appointment at a time and location that suits you. If you are not able to book online you can call 119 free of charge, between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. As the age limit reduces, this will be updated on the booking homepage. 

 

Getting your second vaccination

People need two doses of the vaccine to make sure they get maximum protection. If you had your first dose at a GP centre, we will contact you when it is time for your second dose. This will usually be 11-12 weeks after your first vaccination. Please don’t contact the practice for an appointment, unless it is over 11 weeks since you had your first vaccination.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please Note: Medication can still be requested using Online Services (SystmOnline and NHS App)

You can order your repeat prescriptions online

Fill in our online services registration form and bring it in into reception. You will then be given a username and password which you can use to login

Alternatively, the right hand section of your prescription, which lists your medication, may be sent by post after ticking the items you need, or it can be handed in at reception. It is helpful to the practice and will avoid mistakes if you use this slip every time.

If you come to reception to order or pick up a repeat prescription, it is advisable to attend between 11am and 2pm - when we are quieter. This means you shouldn't have to wait too long. 

Please note, we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone.

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. 

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
