Noticeboard

Our Reception team now triage every call by asking you a few questions regarding the nature of your appointment.  This is so they can navigate you to the best clinician in our team to treat you.  As our team is expanding this may not by a doctor. Please try to help them by giving us as much information as possible as to why you would like an appointment.


We would like to welcome Sam Barker  to our clinical team.  Sam joins us as a mental health nurse who will be able to see our patients with any mental health problems including depression, anxiety, stress etc.  


We would like to welcome Dr Faatima Bala to our clinical team.  Dr Bala joins us as a permanent salaried GP working 6 sessions per week.  


Following the new GDPR rules that came into force on 25th May we have updated our privacy notice.  This can be found on the link below or in the Privacy Notice section of the website.


We will be recalling all our patients for their annual chronic disease review starting 1st April.  You may receive a text appointment or letter inviting you to attend.  We have arranged our clinic reviews so that, where possible, one review appointment will cover all the chronic diseases you may have.  Please attend this review even if you are seen regularly by the doctor or attend the hospital for this condition. 


Electronic Prescription Service

This practice now offers the Electronic Prescription Service, so if you nominate a pharmacy, your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy. The Electronic Prescription Service is reliable, secure and confidential.

If you would like to use the Electronic Prescription Service

  • You will need to 'nominate' a pharmacy to receive your prescriptions electronically. You can ask a member of staff in the pharmacy to arrange this, or a member of staff in the surgery.  
  • You can then continue to order your prescriptions in the usual way, but instead of a paper prescription being collected by you or your pharmacy, the prescription will be sent to them electronically.  
  • You should try to ensure that on most occasions you collect your prescriptions from your nominated Pharmacy. However, if you don't wish to use your nominated Pharmacy for a particular prescription just make sure you let the surgery know when you request the prescription. For example if you wish to collect a prescription from the surgery reception, or a different pharmacy.  
  • Nomination is very flexible and can be cancelled at any time by asking a member of staff at the pharmacy or the surgery. 

If you would like further information about the service, please ask at reception. 
 
If you would like to take advantage of this service and haven't yet completed a nomination form, download one from our website or collect one from reception at the surgery or your chosen pharmacy.
  
This will not affect the way that you order/request prescriptions.

Benefits for you

  • If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.   
  • Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose - whether it's near home, work or the shops.   
  • You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready for you. 

What happens if I do not wish to use the service?

Nothing, you will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.
