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.

New Patient Registration

doctor_examining_earThe doctors welcome new patients who live within our practice area.

To check if you are eligible to register with us, please click on the link below and enter your postcode:-

https://www.primarycare.nhs.uk/publicfn/catchment.aspx?oc=A83055&h=600&w=800&if=0 

When you come to register with the Practice you will be asked to produce two forms of identification to confirm your ID, personal details and home address i.e. drivers licence or passport and also utility bill dated within the last 3 months as proof of address. 

When new patients join the Practice, we like to meet them. To help us give full medical care, we ask you to fill in a health questionnaire before you come for your appointment as it may take some time for us to receive your medical record. At the appointment the practice nurse will carry out brief medical checks and discuss any medications you take, or any health problems you may have.  If you have medication which is on a repeat prescription, you will also need an appointment with the doctor so that this can be arranged.  A copy of your repeat medication from your previous doctor's practice would be helpful.  Please contact reception for further information.

When you attend for your new patient check with the nurse, you can collect the details for online access from reception.  This will enable you to order repeat medication, book and cancel appointments and view medical information online for your convenience.
