RESTRICTIONS ON PRESCRIBING
Our local CCG has issued restrictions on what drugs we can prescribe. These are all things you can buy over the counter instead.
We cannot now prescribe: antihistamines and nasal sprays for Hay Fever, Dental products, vitamins and minerals (with some exceptions), cough mixtures, infant colic preparations, heamorrhoid products and antifungal nail paint!
SAME DAY APPOINTMENTS - RING EARLY.
You can ring from 8 am for an urgent same day consultation. As the winter gets busier please ring before 10 am so that we can arrange to see you the same morning. It is much more difficult to fit you in if you ring late in the morning.
There is a new app designed for young people aged 10 to 24 years, check it out:
We now have a Facebook page which has some further posts if you are interested. You can also rate our services there :
