Noticeboard

Dispensary Text Messaging Service

From 1st May 2019 the practice intends to launch a new text messaging service for dispensing patients.  This will allow our Dispensing Team to notify you of when your repeat medication is ready for collection or whether there is a query with your repeat medication request which we need to discuss with you saving you from unnecessary journeys to the practice or unnecessarily long waits in the Dispensary queue.

If you collect your repeat medication from the practice dispensary and would like to receive notifications of when it is ready for collection please complete the SMS Consent form online or complete a consent form next time you're in the surgery.

If you already receive SMS Appointment Reminders then there is no need to complete another consent form.

For further information or if you have any queries then please speak to a member of our Dispensary Team.


NHS Prescription Fee

Please be aware that the NHS Prescription fee will rise to £9.00 from the 1st April 2019.
