Noticeboard

FLUATHON - Sat October 13 at THAXTED DAY CENTRE  

Appointments now available for our annual Fluathon.  Because of building work, Fluathon is in Thaxted Day Centre this year. You are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine if you are 65 or over, pregnant, a carer, or have a long-term condition.  

Half-Marathon Raising Funds to Equip our new Extension.   A patient is running the Windsor marathon for us in September. To donate via Just Giving, click here

Our thanks to rrt, whose burger lunch raised £2,720 and to the residents of Vicarage Mead who raised £622 with their coffee morning.

Building Work Commences 17 September.   The first few weeks are likely to be noisy.

We will do what we can to use the quieter rooms, but please bear with us.  We can offer quieter evening and weekend appointments at Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow.

Thaxted Surgery has again been rated best in West Essex - 2018 National Patient Survey

Thank you for your continued support and please bear with us through a difficult period of building.

  • Online - follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple registration.
  • In person - hand your repeat slip in at reception having clearly marked the items required.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.

  • By email - to weccg.f81131-dispensary@nhs.net

We do not normally take repeat requests over the phone for safety reasons

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

48_hoursPlease allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Whilst we try to cater for more urgent needs where we can, and will always accommodate medical urgency, please appreciate that we dispense to more than 100 patients per day and need 2 working days to be methodical and avoid mistakes.
