Covid spring booster programme


 For the latest information, please look under the Covid 19 Latest information section located on the right hand side.


25.02.22 - a text was sent out by Park Practice today; we confirm this is genuine.


Following the recent announcement from the Government, we would like to advise that nothing has changed with regards to healthcare settings. Therefore, we are asking all patients to continue with the measures already in place – please wear a face covering (unless medically exempt), hand sanitize and socially distance. We also ask that patients do not come to the surgery if testing positive for Covid in order to keep all patients and staff as safe as possible. Thank you for your understanding. Park Practice

How to order a repeat Prescription 

We do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.

You can put your request in writing and deliver it to the surgery.

You can complete a form at the reception desk.

You can ask your pharmacy to request your medication.

If you are aged over 16 years old and you are registered for Online Services (Patient Access or the NHS app) you can order your medication online.  Please see below for how to sign up for this service.

Please note:

Please always allow 4 working days between requesting the script and collecting it; please allow 5 working days if the script is being sent to a pharmacy. 

We can arrange for prescriptions to be sent directly to most pharmacies in the area and if you want your medication delivered you need to contact the pharmacy direct to enquire if they offer this service.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be regularly reviewed.  If you are sent a letter to attend for a review or to undertake blood tests, please ensure that you book your  appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Going abroad 

If you are leaving the country for more than 3 months, you will need to register with a local doctor for your continuing medical needs. 

GPs are not required by their Terms of Service to provide prescriptions for the treatment of a condition that is not present and may arise while the patient is abroad. Persons who have left the UK, or who are intending to leave the UK, for more than 3 months are not normally allowed to continue to be registered with a practice.

The NHS accepts responsibility for supplying ongoing medication for temporary periods abroad of up to 3 months. If a person is going to be abroad for more than three months then all that the patient is entitled to at NHS expense is a sufficient supply of his/her regular medication in order to get to their destination, where they should then find an alternative supply of that medication.
