Noticeboard

You may have seen the recent media coverage around the shortages of certain medication.  When ordering your repeat medication, please be aware that we are having difficulties in obtaining some medications.  Availability changes on a daily basis but we will always try our best to secure your medication.  This is a National issue affecting all Pharmaceutical outlets.  Your patience and cooperation is very much appreciated.

From December 2018, the only Gluten Free products to be prescribed on the NHS are Bread (includes rolls and part baked bread) and Mixes (does not include flour).

This is in response to the NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS England public consultation.

Gluten free products are now more widely available from shops and supermarkets for you to purchase instead.

The next Carers Coffee Afternoon get together is scheduled for Thursday 14th February at 2pm at Cafe Bella (adjoining the Bell on the main square in Ramsbury). These will be an opportunity for you to find out more information about services available within the local area.  Please come along and join us for a chat.  It's very relaxed and informal so please do join.

If you have any queries, please contact Ramsbury Surgery on 01672 520366 and ask to speak to Maggie Gregory, our Care Coordinator.
