Due to the current situation we have decided to temporarily suspend the morning Drop In Surgeries. Our GPs will be conducting telephone consultations and will arrange with you directly if they want you to come into the surgery. Please call from 8am to request a call back.
Repeat Prescriptions: Please call the Script Line on 01360 440515 Option 2 to request your prescriptions. Alternatively use our Online Prescription Service through this website.
If patients would like to sign up for Online Prescriptions without visiting the surgery, you need to telephone the surgery, asking to join the service and provide an email address we can send the registration form to. The registration details are valid for 14 days.
Once the registration details have been entered onto the website you will be able to access the online prescription service for Repeat Medications. If you have Acute Medications you will still have to call the surgery to request these.
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
