 Christmas appointments and prescriptions

We are trying to be pro-active (yes we know it's early) to ensure no-one is left without a prescription over Christmas and during any bad weather.

If your prescription is due between 21st December and 8th January please submit your request for repeat medications by 15th December. We cannot guarntee anybody submitting prescriptions over Christmas at a late juncture will receive their prescription in time. We can however be proactive and make sure you have it ready for when you need it.

If you struggle to get out in bad weather- please let us know and we will aim to issue prescriptions early when bad weather is due so that you have it in advance and do not need to venture out in the snow.

Christmas/New Year Period- Over this period we will not be releasing appointment for pre-booking. This is because after our closures we tend to be 10 times busier with people with immediate issues, so we will be freeing everything up to deal with these on-the-day pressures. This is only in effect from 21st Dec - 3rd Jan.

 

  

FLU CLINICS -2018

The NHS has released new guidance for 2018 winters flu jabs. In order to offer improved protection, over 65's will be given a vaccine which protects against even more strains of the virus. The under 65 vaccine we offer is also being enhanced. In order to acquire these improved vaccines we are going to be slightly later in offering flu clinics. We will keep you up to date as we open flu clinics
