Noticeboard

Face Masks
Infection control guidance from NHSE was updated on 1 June.
The updated guidance from NHS England means that not all patients will be asked to wear a mask or face covering when attending the Practice. We will now only ask patients attending the Practice who have respiratory or COVID19 symptoms to wear a mask or other face covering.
If you are coming to the Practice to see a member of our team because you have respiratory symptoms, you will be asked to wear a mask or face covering.
Clinicians at the Practice may not routinely wear a facemask when seeing you for your appointment. They will wear a mask if you have respiratory symptoms. Some staff may choose to wear a mask to limit their own risk, but this will now be an individual decision.

Hay fever medication.

Reminder that the NHS does not support the prescribing of hay fever medication.
Most hay fever medication can be purchased over the counter from pharmacies, supermarkets & reputable online retailers at very reasonable prices.

Please speak to your local pharmacy for advice.

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions.  For medico-legal reasons we cannot take prescription requests over the telephone. 

Please allow five full working days (excluding weekends/public holidays).  Unless you ask us to keep it at the surgery it will be sent to one of our nominated chemists, Purton - Lloyds Pharmacy, Cricklade - Boots Pharmacy.  

E-mail Repeat prescription service

We are now able to offer an E-mail repeat prescription service to patients 16 years or over.

Please ask the receptionist for a registration form or download the form.
