It is essential that when a patient orders repeat medication that they allow 24 WORKING HOURS before attempting to collect at reception and a further 24 WORKING HOURS if you wish your  medication to be sent to a named chemist.  If you are ordering an acute item which might be deemed more urgent, it is important that you tell the receptionist so that this can be prioritised.  If you have asked for your medication to be collected at the chemist we would kindly ask that you would check with them first before presenting yourself to reception but again please allow a minimum of 24 WORKING HOURS!



Influenza Vaccination 2019/2020

It’s that time of year when we ask people to come along to the surgery for a flu jab. The seasonal flu can be a serious illness for certain “at risk” people and everyone over 65 years of age (born before 1st April 1955). In addition flu vaccination is recommended for all pregnant women and anyone who is a main carer for an ill or disabled person at home. For these people the Government recommends an annual Influenza vaccination.  Also over the next few years the Department of Health plans to offer this to all healthy kids under 16 however this year we are offering vaccination to pre-school children (born 2/7/15– 1/9/17).

 If you are eligible to get the flu jab you will receive a letter during the first week of October.  If you are unable to attend your clinic date and time you may contact reception to get an alternative.  Patients normally given the flu jab by the District Nurse will have their name passed over and you will not receive any correspondance and you can expect a Nurse to call.

If you missed you flu injection during the month of October when clinics were running you may telephone reception and get an alternative time to come for this vaccines.  We will run 2 short surgeries in December to accommodate these patients.


Pharmacy First 

Over the winter period patients can attend the pharmacy for sore throats, colds and flu like illnesses.


Carers Health Check 

If you are a 'carer' (i.e. you have an unpaid role looking after someone in the community) for someone we can offer you a health check. 

This will involve an enquiry about any health problems / complaints and a review of any current medication which you may be on.  We can also provide information for organisations which may be able to help you in your role as a carer.

Please telephone our reception and ask for an appointment with our Practice Nurse for 'A Carers Health Check'

Repeat Prescriptions



You can now order your medication by setting up an account by clicking in the link above.  This allows you to order repeat medication 24 hours per day 7 days per week.  This will keep a note of any repeat medications which you need to order regularly and it will save you time.  Although prescriptions are ordered the staff do not pick these up until during working hours, so please allow 24 hours from the Health Centre opens until you collect your medication and a further 24 hours if you request the meds to go to a chemist.

When ordering medication online please ensure that you have ordered it under the correct patients name and date of birth.  Individual patients can be set up under the one e-mail address.  Under no circumstances should a patient order medication for another person under thier name.


If you have difficulties using the online service you can telephone the Practice 24 hours per day 7 days per week and leave a voicemail on our answering machine.

Simply dial 028 2766 0300 and hit option 2 then option 1 - Leave your Name, Address, Date of Birth followed by the medication required including dosage which you require and let us know at the end of the message were you wish to collect your prescripton.

If we have difficulty understanding your order don't worry we can always phone you back!


Some patients prefer to order their medication by speaking to a receptionist.  You can still do this although we do recommend that you use the voicemail service as you will not be kept in a queue on the telephones.  If you wish to speak to a receptionist please dial 028 2766 0300 and hit option 2, then option 2 again.  Please hold in the queue and a receptionist will take your call as soon as someone becomes available.

We have a postbox at reception as well.  You can complete one of our re-ordering slips and pop it into the box beside reception.  This is emptied at least twice per day.  This will ensure you don't have to wait in long queues at reception.
