HEPATITIS VACCINE SHORTAGES - There is currently a Global shortage of both Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccines which is expected to last until early 2018. Because of this, in line with the recommendations from Public Health England, we are currently unable to offer these vaccines.

Jul-17: 194 people failed to attend their GP/nurse appointment!  This is equal to 32.5 hours of wasted appointments!  With increased demand for GP and nursing services and very little extra funding to facilitate this rise, reducing the DNA (did not attend) rate could make a significant difference to appointment availability.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment, let us know ASAP so we can offer it to someone else.

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

 

Please also order repeat prescriptions in good time prior to university vacations.

Collecting Prescriptions

If you would like someone to collect a prescription on your behalf, please let us know.  Prescriptions are classed as part of your medical record and subject to Data Protection and Patient Confidentiality, therefore without the consent of a nominated person(s) to collect them in your absence, we will not be able to hand them over.  You only have to let us know once and we will add their details to your record.  If you wish to alter your nominated person(s) please let us know.

Electronic Prescribing (EPS)

The practice supports electronic prescribing.  If you have already nominated a pharmacy to pick up your medicines from, they will be available to collect direct from them in 2-3 working days.  Please speak to your pharmacist for further information on nominating them if you wish to receive your prescriptions electronically in the future.  Prescriptions can still be collected from the Medical Centre if you would prefer.
