Noticeboard

Out of Hours
Gwent Out of Hours - 111.  For emergencies only: to be used when you cannot wait to see your own GP the next working day. The on-call doctor will return your call to assess your need from the service.  Should you be visited at home please identify your house by switching on your outside light or keeping an eye out for the medic car.

Prescriptions
A minimum of 48 hours notice is required to issue repeat prescriptions and must be received in writing. Tick the items you require on the repeat prescription counter-foil and drop it in the box found on the surgery wall near the main entrance. You may also drop your repeat into your local pharmacy but this may take longer to issue.  Please note we do not take requests for repeat medication by telephone.
