Noticeboard

We regret to say that we have no further supplies of pneumonia vaccine and due to a national shortage we are unlikely to get any more until January.  Please keep an eye on the website for updates.

We have recently seen a cut to the number of blood test appointment slots offered to us by Maidstone Tunbridge Wells Trust.  In the circumstances demand for the remaining slots is very high.  If you have a blood test appointment please can you ensure that you attend or let reception know if you wish to cancel.

We are now sending appointment reminders by text message.  If you would like to receive these please make sure we have your up to date mobile phone number.

As you can imagine, our telephone lines are busiest between 8am and 10am.  It would be really appreciated if patients ringing for a routine appointment or other routine matter could avoid those times. Thank you.

We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations.  If you are eligible we will already have ordered your flu vaccination so we ask you to support the practice and have the flu jab at the surgery rather than at a pharmacy.

Please note that in order to avoid errors we not accept requests for prescriptions over the telephone. Please order online or in person. 

Prescriptions

We seem to be receiving an increasing number of telephone calls enquiring whether prescriptions are ready for collection. This is taking up valuable time and slowing down the process of dispensing. Please allow 48 hours to prepare your prescription (remember we are closed sat and sun). Prescriptions received after Noon will be ready 48 hours from the following day. This will avoid unnecessary telephone calls to the dispensary. Thank you.

If you are ordering an item that is not on your repeat form you may add it in the message box at the bottom of the repeat request form. If you are ordering online drop down to the message box. In both circumstances your request will be sent to the doctor. Please note that ordering items not on repeat will take longer than 48 hours to be processed. This could mean your prescription will take an additional 24 hours.

Prescriptions can be dispensed to those patients on our dispensing list.  Patients who live more than a mile from a chemist and are also south of the M20 may apply to be on this list.

These patients may also take their prescriptions to an outside chemist if they wish. Please ask at the dispensary if you would like to be on the surgery dispensing list.

You may choose to have your prescription sent to Lloyds the chemist in Borough Green or the chemist in Vigo village if you wish, but please allow 4 days for this service.

For those on our dispensing list the dispensed prescription may be collected at the surgery, or there is a delivery of medicines to the Post Office in Plaxtol or the Newsagents in Wrotham three times a week. Only patients who are exempt from prescription charges may use the Wrotham delivery service. We also deliver to the residents of Courtyard Gardens, Wrotham
