PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

Please be aware that as of 1st October 2020, we will NO LONGER be accepting repeat medication requests over the telephone. We will be reverting back to our usual way of requesting medication prior to Covid-19.

This is mainly due to the easing of Government Covid-19 restrictions. However it is also to potential errors that are caused by confusion with drug name pronunciation and the pressure it puts on the phone lines and staff. click here for more info on how You can request your repeat medication

Flu clinic plan 2020

This practice provides all usual general medical services. These include:

Minor Surgery

Child Health Clinic

This is held by a doctor, a health visitor and a practice nurse at the Stapleford surgery on Wednesday mornings . The aim is to provide routine health development and advice for children under the age of 5 years. Immunisation of children is carried out during these clinics. It is not a surgery – unwell children should be seen during ordinary surgery times to minimise the spread of infections.

Ante-Natal Care

Routine ante-natal care is undertaken by a doctor in conjunction with the community midwife.
