Noticeboard

As a practice, unfortunately we are unable to provide exemption letters for face coverings. For more information, please click here.


Unfortunately we are unable to offer COVID antibody testing at present


As of 8th June 2020, anybody entering the surgery MUST wear a face covering such as fabric masks (these do not need to be medical grade masks) but this is essential for patient and staff safety. We need to continue to maintain social distancing in the waiting room, therefore we would ask where possible for patients to wait outside. You can inform us you have arrived via a phone call to reception.

Self Care Medication

Self Care Medications are medications which can be bought over the counter from your pharmacy and other outlets such as supermarkets.

In the year prior to June 2017, the NHS spent approximately £569million on prescriptions for medicines which can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy and supermarkets.

These prescriptions include items for a condition:

  • That is considered to be self-limiting and so does not need treatment as it will heal of its own accord
  • Which lends itself to self-care, i.e. that the person suffering does not normally need to seek medical care but may decide to seek help with symptom relief from a local pharmacy and use an over counter medicine.

Vitamins/minerals and probiotics have also been included in the consultation proposals as items of limited clinical effectiveness which are of a high cost to the NHS.
