Holiday Immunisations

Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer a holiday immunisation service due to a national shortage in vaccines. We are advising our patients to contact local travel clinics who may still have some vaccines in stock. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Prescriptions

Please be aware that the practice does not accept prescription requests over the telephone as serious medication errors are more likely to be made through verbal communication and can block the telephone line.

Prescription requests must either be put into the locked box in the waiting room, the secure post box at the car park gates (currently out of use due to a bird’s nest having been found in it) or ordered online through the surgery website. Please contact the practice for more details on how to obtain your login and password for this service. Thank you.

Outside Prescription Box

The outside prescription box by the main car park gates is currently out of action as a bird’s nest containing eggs has recently been found in it. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and will update the web page once the nest is no longer in use. Thank you.
