When ordering your medication please request only ONE MONTHS supply at a time. The current government advice is to continue this to avoid challenges with the supply chain and we are therefore unable to fulfill more than this. Likewise please don't over order or order early as we need to ensure that the supplies of medication are available for all the patients who need them.

Coronavirus Travel Advice
Depending on your specific travel insurance policy, most insurance companies will cover cancelled trips to countries to which the Foreign Office advise not to travel. No certificate from your GP is required.
In addition, please be advised that the surgery is unable to provide letters or certificates to travel insurance companies supporting requests for refunds by patients who, without any significant medical illness, cancel their travel plans.

Proof of sickness
If you have COVID-19 or are advised to stay at home, you can get an ‘isolation note’ by visiting NHS 111 online, rather than visiting a doctor. For COVID-19 cases this replaces the usual need to provide a ‘fit note’ (sometimes called a ‘sick note’) after 7 days of sickness absence.
Isolation notes will also be accepted by Jobcentre Plus as evidence of your inability to attend.

Friends & Family Test
The "Friends & Family test" is a feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience that can be used to improve services. We have enabled an on-line Friends & Family test and it can be accessed by clicking here or on the "Patient Survey" button at the bottom of the home page.
