Mandatory face coverings at the surgery for all visitors

Childhood immunisations

It is Public Health's recommendation that children are still bought in to the surgery for their usual childhood immunisations. These will be available via booked appointment only. 

Prescriptions

Please continue to call NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (the POD) to order any prescriptions. The freephone number for POD is 0808 164 7678. Prescriptions will be issued to pharmacies directly and in line with their usual expected request dates. We respectfully ask you not to request medication any earlier than you would normally and not to request items that you do not need because you may be feeling concerned about levels of supply. If people begin stockpiling medicines or over ordering then this is likely to cause detrimental supply issues. 

To reduce the workload for our doctors the practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBA) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service. 

A few words of thanks....

We would like to thank our patients for the encouraging words of support we have received and for cooperating with the above provisions which have been established to protect everybody’s interests. The partners and practice manager are extremely proud of the Meads team and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them publicly for their continued professionalism and dedication to their work.  We are prepared, we have policies and procedures in place for different situations and are adopting these stringently.
