Seasonal Influenza Vaccines - Book your appointment NOW

Flu vaccine will be available at Discovery Practice from October 2020 for those eligible in an at risk group. Please call to book you appointment. Please read information of the changes we have made to our Vaccination Clinics to ensure we keep you safe this year on the "Influenza vaccine Appointment" section under the Appointment tab.   Thank you


As you will have seen/heard in the media; the Government is expanding this year’s flu vaccination programme to include people aged 50 to 64.


In order to protect those most vulnerable, the ‘at-risk’ groups will be prioritised and vaccinated first.


Once the ‘at-risk group’ phase is well underway, those aged 50 to 64 will then receive an invitation to be vaccinated (they will not be vaccinated prior to receiving an invitation.)

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medication, you should be able to get a prescription without always seeing a doctor. You will still need to come in for a review from time to time.

The simplest and most convenient way to order your repeat medication is ONLINE this can be done at any time even when the surgery is closed. Please note that you need to sign up at the surgery if you wish to use SystmOnline services, to obtain a login and password. 

If you have regular stable medication that is unlikely to require occasional/frequent dose changes you could convert to eRD - electronic repeat dispensing.  This means you will not have to order every month, the GP will review and set your repeats for 6month to 12month.  These prescriptions will automatically be sent to your pharmacy of choice every month electronically without the need to order every month. Medicines classed as "controlled drugs" are not suitable for eRD as they must be collected in person or by you allocated pharmacy.

Alternatively you can use your regular pharmacy who may have an order and deliver service.  By hand you can post your request slip in the prescriptions box located at the entrance of the surgery or by general post.  Whenever possible, please use the computer printed forms for you requests.  Please note that we cannot post prescriptions unless a stamped, self addressed envelope is provided.  Medicines classed as "Controlled Drugs" must always be collected in person or by  your allocated pharmacy.

Please always allow at least 3 working days (72 hours) for your prescription to be ready for collection.

Don't forget during the Christmas Period and Bank Holidays to ensure you have enough supply of medication to last and order a little early.
