Telephoning the Surgery

We have changed the way that your call is handled by our automated system. When you telephone the surgery you will now be given 4 options. Please listen carefully and select the option most suitable to your enquiry. We hope that this will make it easier for patients to contact the surgery when they need to, and welcome feedback on the system.

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

We are now live with electronic prescribing - ask at your pharmacy for a nomination form - your prescription can then be sent direct to them to be dispensed.

Antibiotic Prescribing

Antibiotics, when used appropriately, can save lives in conditions such as pneumonia and meningitis.

Antibiotics don't, however, work for many common infections, such as colds, coughs and sore throats. Most of these are caused by viruses, which antibiotics do not kill: they only kill bacteria.

Taking antibiotics when they are not necessary can lead to needless side-effects and the development of antibiotic resistance: this means that some antibiotics might not be as effective when they are really needed.

As a practice, we have identified that we are prescribing more antibiotics than the best 25% of practices in the UK. As a result we are all making sure that we only prescribe them when necessary. You may notice that the doctor suggests other ways of managing your problem or gives a prescription to be used later rather than straight away.

Please be reassured that you will receive antibiotics if you really need them.
