We cannot process prescriptions.  if you know you will need a prescription at this time please submit it to us by Thursday 4th October at the latest so we can print off before the computers are removed.

Please do not attend for a blood test during this time as we will not be able to take it.  You can come on Monday 8th, Thursday 11th or Friday 12th October instead.

Please be patient and bear with us during this time.

On occasions the practice does have the right to refuse a patient wishing to join the list. Such occasions are:

  • A patient having previously been removed from the practice list due to an irreconcilable breakdown in the doctor/patient relationship.
  • A patient with a history of violence.
  • A patient who is from a country where there are no reciprocal arrangements and therefore not entitled to free NHS care.
