Your Pharmacy - Your Choice!
Whichever Pharmacy our patients choose to use, is very much their own choice. We do not recommend nor do we discourage the use of any particular pharmacy. We do not work in conjunction with any pharmacy service.
If any of our patients receive cold calls from pharmacy companies stating that we have either recommended them, or are working with them in any way, please rest assured this is not the case.
If you would like to nominate your usual pharmacy - please contact Reception and we can update your records to ensure all of your medications reach your desired pharmacy.

There is an ongoing outbreak of Ebola virus affecting Countries in West Africa. Tis is the largest ever known outbreak of this disease prompting the World Health Organisation (WHO) to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern in August 2014. Countries currently affected by the disease are Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria (Port Harcourt and Lagos) and Senegal (Dakar).
It remains unlikely, but not impossible, that travellers infected in Guinea, Liberia, SIerra Leone or Nigeria could arrive in the UK while incubating the disease and develop symptoms after their return. Ebola can only be transmitted from one person to another through direct contact with blood or bodily fluids of an infected person. The incubation period of Ebola virus ranges from two to 21 days. The risk in the UK remains very low.
If you have visited an infected area within the last 21 days AND have a fever / are unwell, please DO NOT attend the surgery. You can contact us by telephone or telephone NHS 111 for advice.
