EPS - You Must Nominate A Pharmacy For Your Electronic Prescription Service

You will still order your prescriptions in the same way but they are sent to the pharmacy electronically. Note you do not have to have a computer at home for this.   

If you request items that are not on repeat these have to be agreed with the GP and may be refused.   Due to the increase in volume of prescription requests please allow 3 full working days between requesting and collecting your medication taking weekends and bank holidays into account. 

Note emails to the Practice should not be used for clinical queries due to confidentiality and the potential for it being urgent.

‘Committed to providing exceptional healthcare to our patients whilst developing the next generation of doctors’

 The Hawthorns Surgery offers a professional and caring service to our patients, utilising the skills and enthusiasm of our team members. 

We feel that the service we give to our patients is of paramount importance therefore you are registered with a specific Doctor (your named GP) not the Practice as we aim to provide efficient, accessible, friendly and high quality family health care. We strive to work together as a practice team and in partnership with our patients, in order to promote health and develop mutually beneficial relationships.

The Hawthorns Surgery is also a recognised Training practice and is instrumental in developing and nurturing the next generation of doctors, from medical students through to qualified doctors undertaking GP specialist training. The understanding and support of our patients in this area is invaluable and we believe the practice and patients as a whole benefits from this important work.

COVID-19

Dear Patients, The Hawthorns would like to assure you all, we are still very much here and available for you during these difficult times. We are offering  telephone, video consultations with our GP's and Nurses on a daily basis Monday to Friday. We may also offer a face to face appointment if deemed necessary. Please if asked to attend a face to face appointment with a GP or Nurse, wear a face covering/mask.
