Easter Bank Holiday Opening
Many people may have concerns about getting ongoing supplies of your medication if you are now self-isolating or are in a vulnerable group.
The government guidance continues to recommend we supply one month of medication to prevent adverse changes in the supply chain of pharmaceuticals.
There is a number of options to maintain supplies when ordering your medication:
Firstly, please order your medication in the usual way and contact the practice to pay, if you are normally charged for your medication.
Please ask a low-risk friend or relative to collect on your behalf.
We can deliver medications to the following local village stores for collection:
- Broughton Surgery
- King’s Somborne - Cross Stores
- Over Wallop – The Wallop Village Shop
- Chilbolton Stores
- Nether Wallop – The Trout
- West Tytherley - Village Shop
- Lockerley - Green Stores
We are currently also increasing our capacity to undertake home deliveries.
If you normally collect your medication from the surgery and you would like to arrange for your medication to be delivered to your home please phone or text the following number:
Please give your name, your date of birth and your address as a recorded message or text message.
Your medication will be delivered as soon as possible.
If you normally collect your medication from a pharmacy, please contact them directly to arrange delivery.
If you would like to change the destination on your prescription or the way in which you obtain your medication then please advise us when ordering:
- If you order online, please indicate your preferred destination or specify home delivery.
- If your order using a paper repeat slip, please indicate at the bottom of the slip where you would like your medication sent.
GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
How to sign-up

Application for On-Line Access
If you are a new patient, the form will be contained in the New Patient joining pack. However, you need to be registered for 3 months before we can activate the service.

Due to a nationwide shortage in supply, we are currently unable to fill prescriptions for Paracetamol and Ibuprofen. We will keep you up to date with the situation.
