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.

In addition to our permanent members of staff we may have up to three junior doctors attached to our practice.  These doctors are with us from 4 to 6 months and this forms and important part of their training.

You may notice that these doctors need to discuss your case with a more senior doctor, and will from time to time video their surgery or have another doctor sit in on their surgery.  This is all part of their training and the assessment process. You will be asked for your permission at all times if your consultation is being recorded or if another doctor will be sitting in.
