IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

REPEAT PRESCRIBING ORDERING SERVICE

The NHS across County Durham and the Tees Valley are making changes to the way you can order your repeat prescription.

Your community pharmacy will no longer be able to order your repeat medication, but you will be able to order your repeat medication directly with the practice, using the repeat ordering slip or online.

There is nothing to worry about - you will still receive the medication that you need.

If you order your repeat prescription directly from the GP practice this change will not affect you.

These changes will take effect from Monday 2nd September 2019.

Please ensure you order your repeat prescriptions when you have about 7 days of medication left and only order the medicines you need.

If you still want your community pharmacy to collect and deliver your prescription, please ensure you inform your chosen pharmacy.

Attached Services

We have a number of services that are attached to the Centre - these include:

Community Psychiatric Nurse

A Health Visitor is a Registered Nurse who has undergone further training in child development and health promotion and can give advice on health care to all age groups, particularly children and the elderly. 

The Health Visitor may give some ante-natal support and will make contact shortly after the baby is born to give care and support to both mother and baby.

The Health Visitors hold Well Baby Clinics in the community for weighing and general advice. For details of these clinics please contact your Health Visitor.

The podiatrist visits the surgery twice monthly when we have a Diabetic Clinic. The podiatry service aims to prevent  and improve foot problems through assessment, treatment and education. The podiatrist’s time at the surgery is fully taken with diabetic patients. 

Dietitian

A hospital Dietitian visits the practice twice monthly when we have a Diabetic Clinic to advise patients on dietary needs. The Dietitian will only see diabetic patients who have a booked appointment.
