Your GP will no longer be able to prescribe medication for certain self limiting conditions. The money saved will mean more funding for serious health conditions such as cancer treatment. Lets all do our bit to help protect the NHS.


Urinary infections

If you feel you have urinary infection symptoms please drop a urine sample at the surgery before 12 noon and don't forget to complete the form. The nurse will check the sample and if it shows an infection we will get a prescription to you later that day.

If you do not have a sample pot at home, please ask reception for one. We are unable to test samples if they aren't in sample pots (no jam jars!). Thank you.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

How using EPS could benefit you?

·  Instead of collecting your paper prescription from the surgery, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you and us valuable time.

·  You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. Electronic prescriptions are 100% auditable, whereas paper prescriptions often get misplaced between us and the chemists.

·  If you go on holiday in England and you forget your medication we can send an electronic prescription to any chemist. Which would save you time trying to register as a temporary patient. 

Please speak to our reception team or your Pharmacy to activate your EPS.

Top Tips for your 10 minutes

Did you know that your GP appointment is only 10 minutes long? Here are some tips to most the most out of your appointment.

  • One problem, one appointment. If you have more than one problem please ask for a double appointment when booking.
  • Write everything down beforehand if necessary.
  • Is this your first visit to the practice? Bring a list of the medication you are currently taking.
  • If you don’t understand, don’t be afraid to ask again. The doctor can explain what has been said or any words you did not understand.
  • Ask a friend or family member to come with you, if you would like.
  • Make sure you know what happens next. You may be asked to book a follow up appointment, be referred to a consultant or for further tests. Make sure you know if you need to do anything and write it down if necessary.

Your GP appointment is 10 minutes long. Make the most of it!
