Sorry, we're closed
Surgery closed for GP and staff training from 12.30pm on Wednesday 21st June ------ From the 1st February 2021 the Surgery will no longer be accepting cash as payments for prescription. Payment by Credit Card and contactless payment only
Each month the Castle Gardens Surgery takes around 4,000 telephone calls. We have identified that nearly 800 of these calls are asking if a prescription is ready for collection. We estimate that this uses over 30 hours of staff time a month and has a significant impact on other patients trying to contact the surgery.
Due to resource constraints and prioritising clinical calls, we will no longer be checking to see if a prescription is ready for collection. Prescriptions will be ready for collection 5 working days after being ordered.
This will free up considerable resources and will speed up clinically urgent calls into the surgery.
Thank you for your understanding,
Castle Gardens Surgery
