Surgery Access

Please make sure you access our services responsibly during this period of heightened risk. 

You should not enter the surgery unless invited strictly by appointment ONLY. 

If you need to attract our attention use the bell on the window in the car park or call us 01942 483213.


If you need to drop off a sample please ring the bell for attention on the window in the car park.


ALL Patients will now need to register for online access to order repeat prescriptions online - this is mandatory as it avoids unnecessary person to person contact.  If this is really not possible then prescription requests should be placed in the black mail box on the left of the main door - please write these at home to avoid entering the practice.  If you forget your own list there are prescription requests just inside the main door and pens that are sanitised. 

In all instances, your prescriptions will be sent to Boots, Winstanley for your collection unless you change to another pharmacy by contacting us.
