Are you taking Gabapentin or Pregabalin (brand names include Lyrica, Alzain, Neurontin) ?
There will be changes that may effect you from 1st April 2019. These changes follow a government consutlation because of concerns around possible misuse and mean that these medicines become Controlled Drugs (CDs). The medicines themselves will not change, but this will mean that only 28 DAYS supply can be prescribed at a time.

We appreciate patients have concerns regards to the availability of drugs due to BREXIT, please only order medication if is due. Please click link below for further information.

May 2019 - Appointment Cancellations
During May 529 patients rang up to cancel their appointment to see either a GP or a Nurse.
This has enabled the practice to offer these cancelled appointments to other patients.
If you have an appointment booked and cannot attend please call us to rearrange or cancel the appointment. This does have knock on effect as to how long patients wait to book an appointment to see a GP or a Nurse.
