If you have symptoms of the Covid virus it is recommended that you avoid taking NSAIDS such as Iboprofen, and to take paracetemol as pain relief instead.
Continue taking any Ace-Inhibitors such as Ramipril.
Please use the e-consult service from the website homepage to order prescriptions during this time.
Prescriptions will still be ordered at their normal durations; we cannot supply additional amounts to avoid shortage concerns.

Prescriptions can be collected from the surgery reception or arrangements made with a local pharmacy of your choice. Please speak to the pharmacy to make the arrangements.
Please allow 48 hours - two full working days - for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients using the postal service should allow a little longer.
Please note requests for prescriptions made after 12:00 will be dealt with the following day, and repeat requests cannot be taken over the telephone.
Prescriptions issued by the doctors which are not collected with 4 weeks of the issue date will be destroyed and a new prescription request will need to be completed.
Medicines Waste Campaign
Surrey Heath CCG are looking to run a campaign in over the next few months to capitalise on the increased footfall of flu clinics. There will be leaflets to reinforce the campaign and 20 questionnaires per practice to give out to patients. GPs will also be asked to fill in a questionnaire. The campaign is not only going to involve GP practices but Care Homes and Community Pharmacists. The questionnaires are independently analysed and should provide the CCG with information to improve our systems.
Campaigns run in West Wales saw a reduction of 1% in items dispensed in a 3 month period following the campaign with 0.5% increase in the national average over the same period. Suffolk PCT, consistently prescribed above the national average prior to running a medicine waste campaign. The rate dropped below the average during the campaign, saving them about £114,000. We are looking to equal their success of these campaigns. Please click on the link below if you would like to find out more about this campaign being run by the CCG.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
