EPS - Electronic Prescription Service
This month we are asking patients to register for electronic prescriptions service (EPS) this is a NHS service which allows prescribers to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient which saves you queuing twice. By March we will aim to have all our repeat prescriptions by EPS.

Cervical Cancer Prevention week 20th January - 27th January
Book your smear with us today
Regular cervical screening is the best way to identify abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix at an early stage.
Women aged 25 to 49 are invited for screening every 3 years. Women aged 50 to 64 are invited every 5 years. For women who are 65 or over, only those who have not been screened since they were 50, have had recent abnormal tests or have never been screened before are still eligible for screening.
Make sure we have your up-to-date contact details so you continue getting screening invitations.
It's important to attend your cervical screening tests, even if you've been vaccinated for HPV, because the vaccine does not guarantee protection against cervical cancer.
