January 2014 Repeat Prescriptions - Save time collecting your prescriptions
On March 11th we will be going live with the Electronic Prescription Service. This means that in most cases we will be able to send your repeat prescription directly to one of the local pharmacies of your choice without you having to come into the practice to collect a paper prescription. Full details of how to register for this will be available in the practice shortly. In the meantime you can register for this service at your local pharmacy. Please ask them next time you see them.
January 2014- Flu jabs -Our best year yet
Over 1700 of our patients have received a flu jab this year -that's 81% of our over 65's and 63% of younger patients who are considered to be 'at risk'. Whilst our campaign is finished, we do still have a few jabs left and would encourage any patient who is in one of the at risk groups to contact us to receive your vaccination.

November 2013 - Stress, anger, depression
We see lots of people who have trouble with stress, depression and anger. Some people feel that before coming to see us they would like to try to sort themselves out but don't know where to start. In the panel on the right we have introduced a new topic 'Stress, depression, anger' under which list some of the local resources that are available to you. These vary from books you can borrow from the library, to internet sites where you can try out CBT (ways of turning negative thoughts into positive thoughts), self help groups and the local psychology services like Let's Talk who will work with you to find the best way to improve things. Whatever the case, if you are not winning do make an appointment to see us.
