    Services at the practice

  • Please phone the surgery during office hours. For home visits, please phone before 11.00am.
    Please call the surgery after 11.00am.

    Patients on repeat regular medication will be asked to see a doctor or nurse if you are newly registered with the practice, and at least once a year to review these medications. Please ensure you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

    You can request your repeat medication either in person by bringing in your printed list of drugs, or via email. Alternatively, you can register to order these online via the online NHS App. Please visit the online service tab for more information.

    Please allow two full working days for requested prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

    If you are applying for an extension of (of longer than the grace period)  and have been seen by the surgery for an illness or ongoing medical problem, then the doctor should be able to write a certificate for you. You can then submit this evidence as part of an Exceptional Circumstances application.


    Students who unexpectedly cannot sit an event assessment on that day are permitted to self-certify using the online portal. Students must register that they are using the self-certification option using the application portal, but are not required to provide any supporting evidence.

    Medical certificates

    If the doctor has written a certificate which has been rejected by the exceptional circumstances panel, you will then need to speak to your Student Support Co-ordinator about this. The Medical Centre is unable to provide further evidence.

    Please note, a medical certificate is not an emergency. Treating patients who are unwell is our priority.
