We now offer telephone triage. Triage just means deciding what, if any, treatment you need and which clinician you need to be seen by to get this treatment. Offering telephone triage means that you will be able to speak to a clinician on the same day and either your problem dealt with over the phone, if appropriate, or an appointment offered if the clinician feels you need to be seen. We hope this will work well and help improve access to appointments.
PrescriptionsAs of 4th January 2016 you will only be able to order your prescription over the phone between 2pm - 5pm. You can however order online or by calling into the surgery at any time. Please allow 2 working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays.

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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
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 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
