Noticeboard

We would like to welcome Darren our MSK Specialist to the team

Darren is our Musculoskeletal Practitioner and is a Chartered Physiotherapist. He is able to assess musculoskeletal problems (joints, bones and muscles) and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.  You can now book an appointment directly with him either via the online booking service or reception without needing to see the GP first.

Some of the conditions he can see are:

-          Joint pain

-          Back and neck pain

-          Sciatica

-          Osteoarthritis

-          Muscle, ligament, tendon injuries

-          Sports injuries

-          Work related injuries

If you require a period of treatment or rehabilitation from a physiotherapist then Darren can refer you into the local services directly. If necessary, he can also refer you on for further investigations (blood tests/x-rays etc.) or for specialist consultations such as with Orthopaedic or Rheumatology consultants

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by ticking the items required on your computerised repeat slip and handing it in or posting it to the surgery. If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will post the prescription back to you.

Alternatively you may order online via the link at the top of this page. You will need to be registered for the SystmOnline service. Please click here to download an application/disclaimer form. Alternatively you can collect a form from reception.

Please bring the completed application form along to the surgery, in person, together with some form of photo ID. You will then be issued with a new user name and a temporary password by the receptionist.

We prefer you not to order your prescriptions by telephone as this can lead to mistakes.

There are certain medications that will not be prescribed without seeing a doctor.

Repeat items will be issued for up to two months, no longer unless discussed with the doctor first.  Some items maybe restricted to other time frames depending on the drug.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, Pharmacist or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
