** Important notice regarding Covid-19 vaccinations ***

Dear Patient,

If we have sent you a link via text message to book an appointment this is bar far the easiest way to book - due to the thousands of vaccine appointments we need to book and associated queries our waiting times on the phone are very long at present. 

First Vaccinations

We have first vaccines available on the 19th and 20th June

Please keep checking this website for updated information.

Second Vaccinations

If you had a vaccination on or before 25th April you can now book your second vaccination. If we have sent you a link via text message this is bar far the easiest way to book. If you have not had a text message then please contact reception after 2pm daily (using option 4) to book your second Covid-19 vaccination.

Oxford Astra Zeneca - We have appointments available this weekend. Please either use the link you have been sent or call reception after 2pm daily.

Pfizer BionTech - We have appointments available this weekend. Please use the link provided or contact reception to book

Please note: If for any reason the gap between your first and second vaccines is longer than 12 weeks then the advice is simply to book as soon as possible.

Thank you.

  • Repeat Prescriptions

    Prescriptions can only be written by a doctor. Once you have been issued with a prescription it may have a computer slip attached to it listing the medication you have been given. This slip enables you to obtain a repeat prescription without seeing your doctor.

    When needed, tick the box against the medication required and hand the slip in at the surgery. You can also post it to us.

    Telephone calls to our prescription line on 01803 867901 should be made between 10:00 - 13:00 Monday to Friday and 14:00 - 16:00 Monday afternoons only. 

    Alternatively you can order online completing a simple registration.

    Repeat prescriptions are processed as quickly as possible but please understand that all requests must be approved by a doctor. Repeat prescription requested before 16:00 will be available for collection from reception 48 hours later.

    If your prescription normally goes to a pharmacy, please be aware that we are unable to tell you when your medication will be ready to collect from the pharmacy.  So please make sure you order you order your medications in good time so that you do not run out.  

    NOTE: Any prescription requests posted through our letter box on a Saturday will be part of our Monday morning processing and, therefore, cannot be collected before 14:30 on Wednesday.

    You can collect your prescription from the surgery, or any chemist of your choice.

    We can now use Electronic prescriptions - please sign up with your preferred pharmacy.

  • Prescription Charges and Exemptions

    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.

    NHS charges

    These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

    • Prescription (per item): £8.60
    • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
    • 3-month PPC: £29.10

    If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. 

    Exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). 
    There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
