Appointments & prescriptions information over the Christmas Period  

 

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 Monday  the Surgery will be closed. 

 

If you have a medical emergency when the Surgery is closed please telephone the Out of Hours service on 111.

  

 

 

Repeat Prescriptions

 

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 early December.

 

The repeat prescription service will return to normal for all sites by the early January.
