Noticeboard

Prescriptions:

From 1st May the practice will no longer accept telephone repeat prescription requests.

You can very simply order your repeat prescriptions via the NHS App OR

Sign up to our Systmone on line system OR

Ask your preferred pharmacy to order your medication for you.

We have taken this action as we have found that it is safer and more efficient for you to order the medication that you require at any given time

New Patient Registration

We accept patients who live in postcode areas IP3 and IP4. To register we ask you to bring either an NHS medical card, or proof of residence (a utility bill or bank statement with your address on it.)

Wheelchair access is available.

If you move outside our catchment area you will be asked to register with a doctor closer to your new home.

The Orchard Street Health Centre houses two surgeries and we share weeks to register patients; however if a patient has a particular wish to register with either surgery it is your free ‘Choice’ to do so; just ask for the doctor of your choice.

We can only register patients with an NHS doctor if they are eligible for NHS treatment – there will be a charge for non NHS patients seen privately.

Allocated GP

All patients registering with this practice will be allocated a named GP on registration.
