Dr Simon Sherman is leaving St Andrews Surgery at the end of October 2015.  The Partners and all the staff wholeheartedly thank him for his hard work and commitment to the surgery since 2003 and wish him the very best for the future.

The surgery will be closed all day on  Wed 14th October.  This is to allow GPs and Practice staff to attend a locally organised training event. 

If you require medical attention on either of these dates, please dial 111 for advice, they will then direct your call to the GP Out of Hours provider.

We are changing the way you can request repeat prescriptions online - please come into the surgery with some form of identification eg. passport, driving licence, bus pass etc to register for Systmone online prescriptions and appointments.

This current process will cease on 1st April 2015.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Repeat Prescriptions

prescriptionspurpleIf you are on regular medication, the doctor may provide you with a repeat prescription slip. To request a repeat prescription, this slip can be handed into reception Monday to Friday or posted to the surgery.

A stamped addressed envelope must be attached to your request if you require the prescription to be returned to you.

Many local chemists collect prescriptions from the surgery - please indicate on your request slip if you wish to use this service.

Please give 3 full working days for all requests and remember that telephone requests are not accepted.

Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered on-line by clicking on the button on our home page.

If a drug is not on your repeat medication list, or if you wish the prescription to be amended, the doctor will require more information to process the prescription request. Please explain why the non-repeat prescription is needed when making the request. If the clinician has insufficient information or is concerned about the safety or appropriateness of the request it will not be authorised.

Your medication will be reviewed at regular intervals by the doctor, and from time to time you may be asked to make an appointment for this purpose.

Contraceptive Pill

Patients that require repeat prescriptions for contraception are required to complete an annual contraceptive pill checklist. Please download and email to or post to the surgery.
