ROYAL MAIL STRIKE - PRESCRIPTION DELIVERY TO BE AFFECTED
You may have seen the news about a Royal Mail planned strike. The first two days of strike days are planned for the upcoming bank holiday weekend, Friday 26th August and Wednesday 31st August.
It is highly likely that all prescription delivery services will be affected as Royal Mail are unable to guarantee their level of service.
If you are due medicines before the first strike dates, please order your prescription as normal.
If you are due medicines during the strike period, please order your prescription in good time and before the strike dates so that we may be able to process the request in time to send them on to your supplier. We will still need to process any requests safely and in line with prescribing guidance, but will do our best to help in getting the request sent off as soon as possible.
Are you still coughing?
We want to see you if you have a cough that has been troubling you for 3 weeks or more.
A persistent cough should not be ignored!
Those aged 60+ are more at risk of lung cancer so if that's you, your relative or friend and you're worried that a cough just won't go away, please contact the surgery to make an appointment.
A message for our patients aged 11 to 24
We now have a new young people's mental health worker and social prescriber.
So, if you are aged between 11 and 24 and are experiencing mental health issues, such as anxiety, stress, depression, self-harm, intrusive thoughts or would just like some help and support to feel more like you, then please contact us via the reception team for more information.
