Repeat Medication Requests 

Please note that we no longer accept requests for repeat medication over the phone.

If you would like to order your prescription using our website please ask at reception. 

Text message appointment reminders

If you have provided us with your mobile number, this will be stored on your medical records. When you make an appointment to be seen at the surgery, you will automatically be sent a text message to remind you to attend, although you can opt out of this if you advise us to do so. You will receive a text message at the time of booking your appointment and also two days before the date of your appointment.


In order for this to work efficiently, please ensure that you have provided us with your up-to-date mobile number and let us know if you change your number so that the text message will be sent to the correct person.


Ebola Outbreak

If in the last 21 days you have returned from Sierra Leone, Liberia or Guinea or any of the Ebola affected countries in West Africa, and you have any symptoms of the infection please do not visit the surgery. Please stay at home and phone the surgery to ask for advice or if the surgery is closed call 111 or 999, saying that you have recently returned from West Africa.

Symptoms include: Diarrhoea, vomitting, headache, rash, sore throat, chills or fever with temperature of 38 degrees or above.



Patient Access: Viewing your online medical record (including medications, allergies, vaccinations and test results), ordering prescriptions and booking your appointments

Patients registered with our Surgery can now book appointments and request repeat prescriptions using their computer, tablet or smart phone, at a convenient time to them using this online service. All patient information is kept securely.

This benefits patients, saving them a telephone call or journey to the Surgery and the service can also be used when the Surgery is closed. For patients with long term health conditions, they can be more involved with their healthcare by being able to access test results and track their treatment.

This service operates alongside traditional ways of accessing services and does not replace them. Allowing patients who want to use this service to book appointments and order prescriptions should help others to find it easier to get through on the telephone during busy times of the day.

Please visit the Surgery and speak to one of the receptionists to register for this online service.

You will need to bring with you 2 items of identification; one of photographic ID in date (e.g. a passport or driving license) and proof of your current address (e.g. utility bill, bank statement, or council tax bill - must be dated within the last 3 months).

You will be provided with a letter containing your PIN number, enabling you to register.
