You will be aware that our clinical system is not functioning at the moment.
This is because of a Virgin Media (VM) network issue, which appears to have been caused by modifications that VM have sought to introduce.
Our communication with the IT department is that IM is working with VM to resolve the problem, but there is no expected timescale when clinical systems will be restored. It is understood that the CCG IT department has difficulty in communicating with you as they share the same VM platform.
Please bear with us.

Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)
The Prescription Ordering Direct Service is the new way we are processing repeat prescriptions:
You can either order yours by ticking the right-hand side of your prescription slip, phoning the POD (01772 214 852) or online via patient access. Your prescription will then be sent electronically to your pharmacy.
The POD is a local clinical hub with local medicine coordinators who are qualified to deal with prescriptions and offer medication advice and are based close to the practice.
For more information please ask reception or pick up a leaflet in practice
