Due to the demand on our services and reduced human resources as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently having to modify some of our services as advertised on our website. Please DO NOT come to the surgery unless you have been advised to do so by a member of our clinical team or if you have a pre-arranged appointment. If you need any further detail regarding any of our services please contact us for advice on 01294 441441 general enquiries.

Medicines are NOT in short supply. Please only order the medicines that you need. Do NOT order all medicines every time.
Pharmacies are extremely busy so please allow at least FIVE days after ordering medicines before collecting from your nominated pharmacy.

When to use Antibiotics

Antibiotics may be used to treat bacterial infections that:

  • are unlikely to clear up without antibiotics
  • could infect others unless treated
  • could take too long to clear without treatment
  • carry a risk of more serious complications

People at a high risk of infection may also be given antibiotics as a precaution, known as antibiotic prophylaxis.
