Order your repeat prescriptions onlineManage your appointments online

We run an access surgery every day at 3pm for urgent problems that cannot wait a few days to be seen. This is bookable on the day only by telephone and is not a walk in clinic.

You can always see a doctor within 48hours if you need to and you can always book further ahead to see your own doctor.  If you feel you are not able to do this please discuss this with the receptionist, our practice manager or one of the doctors.

Outside Surgery Hours

For urgent medical problems outside our normal surgery hours, your calls will be diverted to the NHS 111 service.

Dispensary

Our dispensary can be used by any patient who lives more than a mile from the chemist as the crow flies. Normal opening hours are 8.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday.  You can order repeat prescriptions, either in person at the dispensary, or by registering for online ordering through our website, or using our dedicated email address pang.repeat@nhs.net.
