We will be shortly commencing work to the endoscopy unit of Northgate Surgery – these are rooms based on the ground floor of the surgery. It is a self-contained area of the surgery and so it should not cause a lot of disruption to patients attending for GP appointments and for service users of physiotherapy, ultrasound and audiology. The builders will be using an entrance off the main entrance corridor to access the rooms they are working on but there may be some unforeseen disruption to the waiting room as the work gets underway.
The car park will also be affected as the builders require somewhere to store equipment and somewhere to dispose of rubbish, hence there is likely to be a skip in the car park. Please wherever possible use Morrisons’ car park as room will be even more limited in our car park and this may make you late for your appointment.
The estimated start date for the works is 17th September and they are likely to take 4 weeks.
Appointments for endoscopy will be scheduled to fit round this work.
PLEASE SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR ONLINE SERVICES.
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. Patients using online prescription ordering must also note that you will not be able to order repeat medication if a medication review is due. Once you have had your review you will be able to access online services.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

The Practice no longer accepts repeat prescription requests from pharmacies on behalf of patients. We are aware that the online pharmacist, 'Pharmacy2U' is currently mailing Wakefield residents advising of the services that they can provide. Please note that our policy also applies to Pharmacy 2U and therefore if you choose to nominate Pharmacy 2U to dispense your medicines, you will still need to order your own prescription from the surgery.
All Pharmacies are still able to collect your repeat prescription from the surgery once it has been processed and deliver your medicines to you if they offer these services. Please be assured that the practice has not provided Pharmacy 2U with your details and we are not affiliated to them in any way.
