Dr Connan News

Dr Peter Connan will be retiring from General Practice at the end of June 2018.

Dr Connan has taken the lead in many specific areas including the Patient Group. After more than 27 years of dedication and commitment to Huntingdon Road and Girton Surgeries we understand that this will be sad news for his patients, as it has been for us all here. However, we would of course like to wish Dr Connan the very best and a most enjoyable, lengthy retirement.

Dr Adam Maguire

Dr Adam Maguire will start work at the surgery from the beginning of August and will take over the care of Dr Connan's patients. Dr Maguire has worked at the surgery in the past when he was a Registrar and hence he knows the practice well. We are looking forward to working with him again

Repeat Prescriptionspill_spill 

To request a repeat prescription you can do this:

  • On line using SystmOnline. If you do not have access to this service please register for it in person at reception.  You will need to bring photo ID
  • Using the repeat prescription slip on the right hand side of the prescription (remember to tick the items you require)
  • In writing (please remember to include your name, address and date of birth)
  • Using a blank repeat prescription request form at the surgery
  • Most local pharmacies will offer to send prescription request froms to the surgery on your behalf.  Please note this process takes longer as it takes them time to deliver the requests to us

You can hand in your prescription request at reception, post or fax it to us

For safety reasons we cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone or by email.

Batch Prescribing

If you have regular repeat prescriptions, which do not change between your surgery reviews, please do consider requesting a 'batch' of prescriptions. We are strongly encouraged to prescribe one-month supplies of medication at a time by NHS England, to help reduce waste, but if you request a batch of prescriptions you can take these to your usual pharmacy and simply return to collect the next supply of medication when needed. Your pharmacist will remind you when you will be due to order a further prescription.

Collecting a repeat prescription:

The prescription will be ready for collection 48 hours, i.e. two working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays) after we receive the request

  • If you have submitted your request via a pharmacy you will need to allow an extra working day for your request to be processed in order for the pharmacy to deliver the prescription to us
  • If your repeat prescription falls between Christmas and New Year please make sure you put your request in well before the Christmas period
  • If you wish us to post the prescription back to you, please send us a stamped addressed envelope.  Please allow longer for the Royal Mail to deliver the prescription back to you

If you wish to speak to the Prescriptions Clerk on the telephone please call after 11.30am
