Prescription Requests

From 1st September 2019 there will be changes to the way we handle some prescription requests. Please see our Repeat Prescriptions page for more information. 

Text Messaging Service

We are introducing a new text message reminder service! More information and instructions on how to sign up can be found at the bottom of our appointments page.  

Our PPG is made up both with patients who attend the quarterly meetings in the Medical Centre and patients who communicate with the Practice via email (our virtual PPG).

We find it valuable to be able to communicate with as many patients as possible and recognise that not all patients are able to attend meetings in the evening.

Should any patient wish to receive electronic updates from PPG including minutes of the meetings and updates on current work streams please contact Pauline Drummond, Practice Manager in the first instance. Her email address is:

pauline.drummond1@nhs.net

Many thanks.
