ALERTS

ORDERING PRESCRIPTIONS

Due to the increased pressures on our practice and shortage of staff we will be changing the category of patients who can order their prescriptions by phone.

As from 22.11.21 only those who are aged 70 and over will be able to ring for reissue of their repeat medications. The phone line will only be open between 2pm and 5 pm Monday to Friday.

Patients who do not fit the above criteria can order their repeat medications via the NHS App, by signing up to our online services, by dropping the prescription list into the surgery, by post - or by email giving name, date of birth, address and list of requested medications - please click button below

MONKEYPOX

Information

 The UK Health Security Agency has confirmed that cases of monkeypox have increased recently but the risk to the UK population remains low.

Anyone can get monkeypox. Currently most cases have been in men who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men, so it's particularly important to be aware of the symptoms if you're in these groups.

Contact a sexual health clinic if you have a rash with blisters and either:

+ you've been in close contact, including sexual contact, with someone who has or might have monkeypox (even if they've not been tested yet) in the past 3 weeks

+ you've been to west or central Africa in the past 3 weeks

If you have an unexplained rash, please contact NHS111 or phone the practice to make an appointment.

Further public information is available - see below.
