Electronic Prescriptions

We are pleased to announce that Potterells is now using the electronic prescription transfer system. This should be a simpler process for issuing medication and we hope it will be more secure and will mean fewer prescriptions going missing. If you would like to make use of this service please inform your regular pharmacist

 

New Patient Registration

Eligibility can be quickly confirmed from your address so please provide proof by way of a recent utility bills (x2). We also require one form of photographic ID plus your NHS No.  You can present to the practice on the following days/times to register: Monday to Friday 12.00 till 2.00pm and Monday evening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.

You will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from your previous doctor. Both forms can be found on the above "Registering Online" tab.  Please allow 5 days before you come into the surgery with the relevant paperwork required. i.e. utility bill and proof of ID.

New patient health checks

All new patients over the age of 35 are  offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication you may be taking.

During the new patient health check you may be offered a routine HIV screening test. We are part of a pilot project offering routine tests to all patients with the aim of improving the rate of detection of HIV in patients without symptoms.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.
