Flu Clinic information for those patients aged Younger than 65 years.

The Government recommends that this group of patients have the Quadrivalent Vaccine.  This is the same vaccine that we used last year.  This year the manufacturer has made us aware of a delay with getting the vaccine to Practices, please see below:

“The World Health Organization (WHO) took a decision to delay the selection of the A/H3N2 strain of flu notification by one month. This has had an effect on the manufacturing timelines and will impact the vaccine time to market. Distribution will therefore commence a few weeks later than last season”

We will receive staggered deliveries of the vaccine during October and November.  We think we will have sufficient vaccines in order to run a clinic at the end of October.

Repeat Prescriptions 

The practice runs a computerised repeat prescribing service. If you are on regular medication you will be given a computer slip with the drugs you take printed on it. When you need more medication, tick against the items you require and either post the slip to us or place it in the box outside the dispensary. You can also email: or           fax: 01449 740903.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.

We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone as mistakes can all too easily happen. Of course if you do have problems we are always happy to help if we can.

It takes two working days (48 hours) to process repeat prescriptions so do take care not to run out of medication. For those who have difficulty getting to the surgery we have various ways to get your medication to a collection point near to you. Please ask the dispenser who will advise you.

Free Repeat Prescription Delivery Service

We now offer a FREE prescription delivery service for our elderly and housebound patients. For more information please contact a member of our dispensary team.

Medication Reviews

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.
