 Christmas appointments and prescriptions

We are trying to be pro-active  to ensure no-one is left without a prescription over Christmas and during any bad weather.

If your prescription is due NOW you will recieve 2 months worth of prescriptions unless you are on certain medications (warfarin, DMArds etc..)

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.
