Flu Clinic 2017

Repeat Medication Ordering.

We have taken the difficult decision and amended the practice policy regarding the ordering of Repeat medication by Chemists. From the 1st June 2017 Chemists will no longer be able to order medication on a patients behalf. The other usual methods of ordering medication remain - in person, online or now by Fax. The link below explains these changes in more detail.

Dr Exley

It is with sadness to inform patients that Dr Exley is taking early retirement and finishes on Friday 6th October after 26 years of service . He will be missed by staff and patients but wish him well for the future. 

Church Street Medical Centre is Rated Outstanding by CQC!

We are pleased to announce  that the Practice has been rated "Outstanding" in our recent CQC inspection.  Only 194 GP practices in the Country have been given this rating and we are incredibly proud of all the Staff at the Surgery and our Patient Participation group for their contribution to the Practice.

Did You Know

You are a carer if you provide help or support to a partner, parent, son, daughter, other relative, friend or neighbour who, due to disability, frailty, illness and/or vulnerability, cannot manage in the community without another's help.

young_carerCarers can be any age and need not necessarily live in the same house as the person they care for. They may be in receipt of carer's allowance/premium but otherwise undertake caring without payment.

There are approximately 12,000-13,000 carers living in the area. A significant proportion of these carers remain hidden, unaware of their entitlement to services and benefits. Your practice is actively identifying carers and encouraging them to get the support they need.

We can help with:

  • Referrals to other agencies who are able to provide practical help, such as Social Services, benefits agencies, counselling service, local sitting service for breaks etc
  • Offer information and up-to-date news regarding carers' issues
  • A listening ear for carers

The carer support and information workers are very interested to hear carers' views and experiences.
