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.

GP Training

The Registrars

blood_pressure4As our Practice is a teaching practice, we have a series of short term junior doctors similar to the hospital junior doctors. These experienced doctors are usually with us from four to six months.  We have the responsibility of preparing them for the challenge of their own Practice. This of course constantly keeps us on our toes and in the mainstream of medical thought. 

Medical Students

As part of our teaching commitment, from time to time we have  medical students from Newcastle University at the practice to gain experience as part of their course. We hope you will be able to help them with their training but if you do not wish to have them present when you see the doctor, please feel free to say so.
