This month we said goodbye to Marie, Marie has retired after 15 years at the practice. Marie will be a big miss and we thank her for her fantastic contribution to the practice and for being an exceptional member of the team.

From September 2019 you can no longer order your repeat prescription through a pharmacy, here are the ways you can order you prescription:
- The online ordering service - if you do not have an account set up, please speak to our reception team.
- Internal Prescription Box - an internal prescription box for posting your tear off slip is situated near the dispensary hatch. You can use this service anytime between 8.00am and 5.45pm each weekday (Monday to Friday).
- Post - You can post your prescription request including a stamped addressed envelope if you require us to post your prescription back to you. If you use this method please ensure you request your prescription in plenty of time for it to be returned to you before you run out of medication.
- Prescription Line - The prescription line is open Tuesdays and Wednesday 10am-12pm 0191 5128919
