Repeat Prescriptions

We are no longer taking repeat prescription requests on our main surgery telephone number. This is to reduce the volume of calls to make it easier for patients phoning for appointments, advice or in urgent need of help to get through.

Repeat prescriptions can be requested online via our website, by handing in your repeat prescription slip at the surgery or by using the repeat prescription hotline on 771886.

Doctors' appointment slots last 15 minutes and are intended to cover one problem, or at the most two. But quite a lot of patients will go into the doctor with several problems at once - hence they over run. Similarly, it is only one person per appointment. If you take someone else with you into your appointment they should not use the opportunity to ask the doctor about their health problem too. 

The doctors here are very keen to let people have the time that their condition requires, but if people take longer unnecessarily, or save up issues until they've got a list of them, it is really unfair on both the doctor and the other patients in the waiting room - who may be feeling very poorly. If you know in advance that you will need longer, please book a double appointment.
