Please order your regular prescriptions early to cover closures over the Christmas period ................We are currently accepting new patients

 

 

 

NO Longer accepting Pharmacy managed prescriptions
It is estimated that over-ordering, stockpiling and not using medication, costs the local NHS around £2.5 million per year. To reduce these costs the local CCG group, inline with others have made changes. These changes mean that patients must place orders on repeat prescriptions themselves. The pharmacy or supplier will not be able to do this for the patient.

This does not change how your medicine or equipment is delivered or received. The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) still allows you to nominate a pharmacy or supplier to fill your prescription for collection or delivery.
Notice Board
  • FLU VACCINATION PROGRAM 2018
  • You may be aware that the seasonal flu vaccination programme is being offered to all patients over the age of 65 this year. However, for the first time this year NHS England recommends a different vaccine for this age group.  This is currently only supplied by one national supplier and therefore has led to shortages in supplies generally.  NHS England has advised us to recommend that, in the first instance, you contact your local pharmacy who may have secured supplies of the ‘aTIV’ vaccine.  In the event that this vaccine is not available at your pharmacy, the Practice is able to offer you an alternative vaccine offering similar protection to previous years and we would recommend you have this vaccine rather than having no protection at all.
