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.

Flu Vaccines

We still have a few adult flu vaccines in stock, please contact the surgery for an appointment or to check if you are eligible.

Anonymised patient information will also be used at a local and national level to help the Health Board and Government plan services [e.g. for diabetic care]. If you do not wish anonymous information about you to be used in such a way, please let us know.

Reception and administration staff require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. These members of staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the medical staff.
