Revised dispensary opening times 15th - 17th June

On the 15th, 16th and 17th of June our dispensary will be closing at 3.00pm.

Our team will be working overtime before and after to reduce the impact of this on our patients and we hope to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. 

It has been a difficult 6 months in our dispensary with prolonged staff shortages and delivery delays caused by supply chain pressures, so we are delighted that we have recently recruited 2 new team members - 

Nikita has been with us for 6 weeks and is certainly helping to relieve the pressure on Jane and Julie by serving at the window.
Elli will be joining us full time in late June as our 3rd dispenser and this should mean that even when the unexpected happens, we can maintain our dispensing services.

We wanted to thank you for your understanding and all the positive comments that we have received about the team recently. It definitely feels like things are getting back to normal.

We have some exciting plans for dispensary, and we look forward to sharing those with you soon. 

Contacting 111 first will get you the right treatment more quickly

A new national campaign to help people get the right healthcare quickly and safely launched this week.

Think 111 First encourages people to contact 111 by phone or online if they have an urgent – but not serious or life-threatening – injury or illness.

In some cases, people will be able to book direct appointments or get a referral for a time slot into a service that is right for them, including A&E .

Arrangements will not change for serious or life-threatening illnesses or injuries - people should continue to dial 999.

Those who attend an A&E without contacting 111 first will not be turned away and will be prioritised depending on clinical need, as is the current practice.
