We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics in chronic disease management. There is also a Pharmacy at both surgeries.  The Practice boundary extends from South
Shore to Anchorsholme and inland.

 

If you require medical advice when the surgery is closed, please dial 111 or alternatively if it is a medical emergency, please dial 999.


Scam!!!

We have received a report that some women are being contacted by a text message, claiming to be from recall service to advise that they are overdue for a screening.  The message asks them to call a mobile number and provide personal details.

These messages are not from the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.

Please do not respond to any messages without being certain of the sender.

 

Midwife Forms

You can now self refer for the community midwifes instead of attending the surgery to film a form in. Please use the below link to film in your referral form to the midwife.

Thank you 

On Behalf of all the staff here at Glenroyd, I would like to say a Massive thank you to both Montgomery High school and St Marys Catholic Academy and Armfield Academy for their kind donation of protective googles and visors.

This is a very unexpected gesture and is very much appreciated. It is so lovely to know we are being thought of during this tough time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) - NHS

COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

NHS prescription charges

from 1 April 2018

From the 1st April 2018 prescription charges will increase from £8.60 to £8.80 for each medicine or appliance dispensed. To ensure that those with the greatest need, and who are not already exempt from the charge, are protected we have frozen the cost of the prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) for another year. The 3-month PPC remains at £29.10 and the cost of the annual PPC will stay at £104. Taken together, this means prescription charge income is expected to rise broadly in line with inflation.

Details of the revised charges for 2018 to 2019 can be found below.

Prescription charges

  • Single charge: £8.80
  • 3 month PPC (no change): £29.10
  • 12 month PPC (no change): £104.00

 

 

 Patient Notice

The practice would like to apologise for the increased waiting times to see a doctor.  The practice has seen a reduction in their staffing levels and we are working to remedy this.
