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 , 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.

Community Nurses

Phil Hunter and his team can be contacted on 402556.  They provide home nursing services mostly for the housebound, elderly, chronically sick and people who have had recent operations. Evening and weekend telephone NHS DIRECT 111 and leave a message on the answer machine.

Health Visitors

We no longer have a named health visitor who is based at our practice and sees all of the children that are registered with us.  Health visitors are now locality based – where you live will depend upon which health visitor you see.

If you need to speak to a Health Visitor you can telephone Atkinson Health Centre on 845946.

Alternatively, you can phone the surgery and we will advise you who your health visitor is and how you can contact her.

Non urgent messages can be left at the surgery.
