Noticeboard

29/11/2021 - COVID VACCINATIONS.  In light of today's news we need to ask you to be patient and wait for an invite to book your Covid Booster or 2nd Covid vaccination.  Please do not call the surgery.  It will take a few days for the legal paperwork to be updated that allows us to implement the new guidance.  It will also take time for us to put on additional capacity at The Desborough Suite for the expected increased demand.  Patients are asked to book when they receive a booking link rather than walk-in as pre-booked appointments will take priority and you may be turned away.

Book or manage a booster dose of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

COVID-19 Vaccination Status available on NHS App of by calling 119. Please do not contact the surgery

You may have medication for long-term treatment on repeat for a set period of time before needing a review appointment or tests. To re order please use the tear-off part of your prescription or token or write out your order and:

  • hand it in at the surgery or chemist (allowing 3 working days for the prescription to be processed)
  • online via a the link at the top of this page
  • Post the request to the surgery (allowing a minimum of 48 hours for the prescription to be processed.)
  • Requests will NOT be taken over the PHONE at the SURGERY unless there are exceptional circumstances.
  • Telephone  your local chemist e.g. Cookham Pharmacy (01628 521369)

Please be aware of your review date shown on your prescription reorder page. This is an approximate date when you should contact the surgery to arrange a review.

If you are elderly or disabled you can telephone for a repeat prescription on 01628 524646 with agreement from the GP.

You can nominate your preferred chemist or appliance provider (if you use one) to receive your prescription by electronic transfer from the surgery so there is no paper copy to collect. This can be your local pharmacy or you may find it more convenient to use a pharmacy near your workplace or a supermarket based pharmacy.  Please ask your preferred pharmacy about Electronic Prescribing (EPS).

Treatment for dry or sore eyes

Prescriptions for treatment of dry or sore eyes should not routinely be offered in primary care as the condition is appropriate for self-care.

Patients should be encouraged to manage both dry eyes and sore eyes by implementing some self-care measures such as good eyelid hygiene and avoidance of environmental factors alongside treatment

Mild to moderate cases of dry eye syndrome or sore tired eyes can usually be treated using lubricant eye treatments that consist of a range of drops, gels and ointments that can be easily be purchased over the counter.
