If you take regular medication for contraception, asthma, hay fever, acne or eczema you will need to book an appointment with one of our specialist nurses at least a week before your medication runs out. (Please tell reception which condition your medication is for so they can direct you to the correct nurse).
All other medications please book an appointment with a doctor at least one week before your medication runs out.
If you have a minor illness eg coughs, cold or flu symptoms, earaches, skin or fungal issues, bites, hay fever (this list is not exhaustive), the practice may refer you to your local pharmacy for a consultation if appropriate under the Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS).
