PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

We will no longer be accepting prescription requests over the telephone. You can order via the Rotherham NHS App or Systmonline. You must order directly from the surgery unless you have access to above.

Flu vaccination programme update

Recent government announcement on flu vaccinations for Well people aged 50-64 has raised some questions amongst our patients.  The government has advised that they will provide further guidance to the practice and the public, closer to the proposed vaccination programme date, which will be sometime in November and December for this group of patients.  

However, someone aged 50-64 years old, who has a health condition that needs early vaccination will be invited by the practice to attend earlier.

Chaperone Policy

Our practice is committed to provide a safe, comfortable environment where patient and staff can be confident that best practice is being followed at all times and the safety of everyone is of paramount importance.

All patients are entitled to have a chaperone present for any consultation, examination or procedure where they feel one is required.  This chaperone may be a family member or friend.  On occasions you may prefer a formal chaperone to be present, i.e. a trained member of staff.

Wherever possible we would ask you to make this request at the time of booking in a reception to that arrangement can be made and your consultation is not delayed in any way.  Where this is not possible we will endeavour to provide a formal chaperone at the time of the request.  However occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule your consultation.

Your healthcare professional may also require a chaperone to be present for certain consultation in accordance with our chaperone policy.

If you would like to see a copy of our Chaperones Policy or have any question or comments regarding this, please ask at Reception.
