  • those who are age exempt
  • those with certain medical conditions

Please give as much notice as possible when making these appointments to enable you to see your usual doctor.

Waste Medicine

Thousands of pounds are wasted each year by patients requesting medication they do not need.

Please help us to minimise the cost of waste medicine by only ordering what you need.
