We have a Doorway collection in reception. This is for those who have been homeless and no longer have any belongings. There is a list below of items doorway need for their starter packs. These packs can help make a house a home for a homeless young person.
There has been a confirmed Measles case within Nuneaton.
Please see attached information about Measles.
If you have a sharps box at home that needs collecting you can contact the council and they will arrange free collection of this for you. Otherwise you can drop it in to any independent chemist. Please note that Lloyds and Boots pharmacies will not take these off you and they cannot be dropped into surgery.

In an attempt to improve safe prescribing the surgery has upgraded its Repeat Prescribing policy.
All patients who receive repeat medications must have a review at least every year. The date for this will be on your repeat prescription.
Once this date for Medication Review is overdue we will provide 3 reminders on the repeat prescription slip. If you do not attend for a Medication Review then your medication will not be issued.
Once the Medication Review has been completed your medication can be issued.
In the event that any medication is required urgently, a request can be put through to reception and the prescription issued with the proviso an appointment is booked with the relevant clinician.
Drugs are expensive and we try to avoid waste, so please check your cupboards before ordering repeat items, and only tick the items you actually need. Every year millions of pounds worth of drugs are thrown away when people have ordered items they do not actually need.
In line with national and local policies, it is our policy to issue repeat prescriptions for 28 days’ supply at a time. Research has shown that nationally approximately £12 million worth of drugs are thrown away every year when prescriptions are issued for longer than 28 days. By preventing this wastage, money can be channelled in to other NHS services.
These save money for anyone needing more than 3 items in 3 months, or more than 12 items in a year. You can buy a yearly certificate for £104 (which can be spread over 10 months by direct debit) or a 3 monthly one for £29.10. Please ask your pharmacist for further details and how to obtain one.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
The charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or 13 or more items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £9.00, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
