FLU IMMUNISATIONS

The Children's annual flu nasal spray is offered free to children aged 2,3 or 4 on 31st August 2016 - (that is, children born between 1st September 2011 and 31st August 2014) to protect them against flu.

Flu can be a very unpleasant illness for children with potentially serious complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia.

The nasal spray flu vaccine has very few side effects - the main one is getting a runny nose for a few days after vaccination.

For children registered at the Practice please call the appointment line to book.

BOOKING APPOINTMENTS

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT BEFORE 8am

Please let us know if you need to cancel your appointment

On just one day this week 5 patients failed to turn up for appointments they had booked with our Practice Nurses. This is a frequent occurrence. You will appreciate that this is a serious waste of their time.  If you have an appointment booked with either a nurse or a doctor and you cannot attend please let us know so that this appointment can be offered to someone else. Thank you.

Click Here to Order your Prescription online

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

Prescriptions

medication_10

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
