Covid Vaccination Clinics have been running since December 2020.We have now offered vaccinations to all patients in groups 1 - 9 and have now started to book second vaccinations. There are still a number of patients who have not responded to our invitations but we can still arrange vaccinations and would encourage anyone who did not respond initially to contact the practice so that an appointment can be arranged.

Over the Counter Medication

Medications available to purchase over the counter (OTC)

We would like to advise patients that as from 1st August 2018 a range of medicines that are available to buy over the counter from pharmacies and supermarkets will no longer be routinely prescribed by the practice.

This decision across Staffordshire follows a recent national consultation and NHS England guidance.

NHS England has identified over £569 million being spent on prescriptions for medicines, which could otherwise be purchased OTC from a pharmacy or other location. The annual cost of these medicines in Staffordshire is £5 million.

We hope that patients will understand the rationale behind this decision and agree that this money could be put to better use to support more serious health conditions.

If patients have any complaints or concerns about this decision we would advise they contact PALS on 0800 030 4563 or
