IMPORTANT PATIENT NOTICE
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently only seeing patients in practice who require urgent medical attention.
If you require urgent medical attention please telephone the practice. The receptionist will then book you a telephone call with either a GP or a nurse. Patients will be assessed over the telephone and the clinician will then decide if a face to face appointment is necessary.
Please continue to order your medication in the usual way, this will be sent to a pharmacy of your choice.
Thank you for you cooperation.

RPOS – Repeat Prescription Ordering System
As from the 2nd September Community pharmacies and third party companies will no longer be able to order medication from the practice on behalf of patients. Patients will be required to order their own medication directly with the practice. This can be done by:
Online ordering from the practice
Calling the voice mail line (01325 328901)
Using the tear off part of the repeat prescription, identifying the items required
There will be no restrictions on community pharmacies and third party companies collecting prescriptions on patient’s behalf, to prepare prescriptions in advance and arranging delivery of medicines.
Please tell us if you would recommend our practice by completing the Friends and Family Test next time you visit your local surgery. You can do this via the 'Elephant Kiosk' at Cobblers Hall Surgery or by completing a Friends and Family feedback form at Burke Street Surgery and Dene Valley Surgery. You could also complete the test online via the 'Have Your Say' section of our website. Please see reception staff for further information.
During the month of August we asked our patients to provide feedback on the services we provide by completing our Patient Survey. If you would like to view the results please follow the link below.
