Christmas Pharmacy Openings - Christmas Pharmacy Rotas for 2017

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING -  A huge thanks to all who attended and helped - we have raised over £420 so far and money is still coming in.  

If you have not had your flu jab yet - please make an appointment - having the vaccine here provides vital income to the practice - if we don't get this income - we may lose some services.

New Prescription Line

Due to the increased number of prescriptions we are trialling a 24 hour repeat prescription line.   

This can be accessed the same way as before - dial the normal practice number and Option 2 for prescriptions.   You will automatically be transferred to the answer machine.   Please leave a message stating your name, date of birth, address and telephone number followed by the medication you require.    Please speak clearly and spell anything unusual.   If we cannot hear the message we cannot generate your prescription !

Use of Arboretum Premises 

We are now able to use some of the rooms at the Arboretum Practice - which is only across the road from us.    Please check which building your appointment is in.  

GREAT NEWS -     We have received our CQC report after the Inspection on 31st May and have been graded as GOOD
