Noticeboard

PRESCRIPTION ORDERING CHANGES - From 21st September 2020 you will have to order repeat medication directly via your GP practice, not via your pharmacy or medical equipment supplier. You can order in the following ways: online via Patient Access, by email to cuccg.atkinson.prescriptions@nhs.net , by dropping the request at the surgery or via post.  If you can’t order by these means and don’t have a family member, friend or carer able to order for you, please contact us.


Please note this only affects the ordering of your prescription. When you order your repeat prescription directly through your GP practice, your pharmacy will continue to collect or receive your prescription as before. Pharmacies may also continue to deliver your prescription if you currently receive this service.

nhs111When We Are Closed

When our GP practice is closed, patients should call the NHS 111 Service by dialling 111. All calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

What is the NHS 111 service?

A simple, free to call, easy to remember three digit number that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The NHS 111 service directs patients to the service that is best able to meet their needs taking into account their location, the time of day of their call, and the capacity of local services.

When should I use the NHS 111 Service?

  • When it is not a life threatening situation, and therefore is less urgent than a 999 call.
  • When visiting your own GP isn’t an option, for instance when the GP Practice is shut or you are away from home.
  • When you feel you cannot wait or are simply unsure of which service you require.
  • When you require reassurance about what to do next.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
