Patient Group:
We are looking for additional patients who may be interested in joining the practice patient group. Follow the link "Have your say" for further information.


As a rural practice, with no pharmacies within our catchment area, we dispense medication to the majority of our patients. Prescriptions are referred to as either "acute" (i.e. for the management of an acute problem), or "repeat" (i.e. used for management of a long term condition). The majority of prescriptions are issued as generics, i.e. using the chemical name of the medication, rather than the branded/commercial name.

The reason for doing so is that we can prescribe in the most cost effective manner thus being good stewards of limited NHS resources. This may result in repeat medication appearing to look different / having different looking packaging each month.

The actual medication is quality assured, in accordance with UK national guidance, and will therefore be exactly as effective as the branded alternative.

Many of our patients now choose to order their medication online. Please follow this link for instructions on how to use the service SystmOnline
