Contraceptive Prescriptions (where previously issued)

Patients who require emergency contraception can attend a pharmacy (see in more info link) or contact the surgery immediately and inform the Reception staff that they require to be seen in connection with this specific requirement. More information can be found here>>
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
