Appointments & prescriptions information over the Christmas Period 2016
During the Christmas period all Practice sites will be closed on National Bank Holidays.
This year, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day land on a Sunday when the Surgery is already closed but the Bank Holidays will be as follows:
Monday 26th December (Boxing Day)
Tuesday 27th December
Monday 2nd January
If you have a medical emergency when the Surgery is closed please telephone the Out of Hours service on 111.
Repeat prescription requests usually take 48 hours to be processed by the Surgery.
During December the number of repeat prescription requests increase across the 4 Practice sites from approx. 562 requests per day to 640 requests per day!
Extra staff are put in place to process these additional requests but to enable the Practice to ensure all requests are completed in time for Christmas we ask for repeat prescription requests, which are required before Christmas, are delivered to the Surgery by 12noon, Friday 16th December 2016.
