Extended Access

Posted: 20 March 2018

In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours, and additional surgery opening times as stated above, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across Redditch and Bromsgrove.

GP practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients. This means that your extended access appointment may be with a different GP, nurse or based in a different location or practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only.

These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.

Prescribing Changes

Posted: 16 November 2017

As of the 18th September there is now a restriction placed on access to certain medicines, treatments, products and food items on prescription.

These changes follow a decision made by the three Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Groups in July this year where they agreed to no longer support a number of different items, specifically:

  • To restrict the prescription of treatments and medicines for shortterm, minor conditions
  • To stop the prescription of all gluten-free foods
  • To stop the prescription of soya milks, thickened infant formula, formula for lactose intolerance and all infant formula available as ready to use liquid
  • To restrict the prescription of oral nutritional supplements

Those patients affected by the new commissioning polices will now be advised to purchase required products from a pharmacy, supermarket, health food store or online.
