Repeat Prescription Ordering
From 2nd September 2019 the pharmacy will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions on behalf of patients. Patients who have a clinical need or are housebound and unable to do this may continue to use this service if it has been agreed by the practice direct. If you have any issues regarding this please contact the surgery direct to discuss this further with the prescription clerk. Patients can now order there prescription by the following: online, in person, by post or by fax. The prescription enquiry line is available everyday between the hours of 9am – 12.30pm on 01642 944200. From a legal point of view we are unable to take any medication requests over the phone and all requests must be submitted in writing to the practice.
Please be aware this is a CCG decision and not made by the practice and will be carried out in all local GP surgeries.
From 1st April 2017 the STAR Service will be providing extended hours on behalf of the Practice. This means that patients will be able to access services usually delivered at the Practice i.e. GP and Nurse appointments between 6.30pm - 9.30pm weekdays and 8am - 9.30pm weekends. To make an appointment at one of the 4 hubs (North Ormesby Health Village, Acklam, Redcar Primary Care Hospital, East Cleveland Hospital in Brotton) please contact the Practice on 01642 277000 or 111 or alternatively you can book online via http://www.starappointment.co.uk/booking/.
