Online Dispensary Services - the implications of using them (please see our footer link for more information)
When our patients from the more rural areas sign up to have their medicines dispensed by Pharmacy2U or any similar company, the practice loses part of its dispensing income. The greater the loss of dispensing income, the greater the threat to the viability of our surgeries.
If the practice were no longer able to afford village surgeries, the health and wellbeing of all of us would be affected, but particularly that of the most vulnerable members of our community. Please see the article from Dr Sam Dominey of Three Chequers Medical Practice in our footer link to understand more on this matter.
When we are closed if you urgently need to see a doctor please call 111
VACANCIES (click here) We are currently recruiting!! Please see link for the positions available.
Please see Staff Vacancies in our footer. Call into our Endless Street Surgery to request an application pack.
Thank you to so many of our patients who are willing to give up their time to attend PPG meetings. We have reached a point where we have a maximum number of attendees at the PPG meetings and we are working on formalising membership, roles and the work of the PPG. Further details will follow shortly.
In the meantime if you spot any opportunities for improvement and would like to let us know, please write to Sue Bramley, Practice Manager.
If you have a specific complaint, please refer to the Practice complaints procedure.
