Update on Cherry Willingham Surgery

Posted by: Mark - Posted on:

The practice had to take the difficult decision in the middle of March to temporarily close the branch surgery at Cherry Willingham due to extreme staff shortages; we apologise to all patients who may have been affected by this closure. The surgery is now undergoing a period of modernisation and alteration over the next couple of months so that when we reopen (hopefully in the autumn) it will comply with all new infection control measures and provide a COVID safe environment for everyone.

One change when the surgery reopens is that the dispensary will no longer be open and patients will no longer be able to collect medication from that site. All dispensed prescriptions will be available to collect from the dispensary at Nettleham. Should this be a problem for you, please speak to one of the dispensers about our home delivery service which is available for patients who are housebound or struggle to get out.

It will still be possible to leave your repeat prescription request at Cherry Willingham as it will be brought over to Nettleham on a daily basis. You may wish to consider alternative ways of ordering your medication which include ordering online via SystmOnline, ordering via AskMyGP, signing up for the eRD service (available to non-dispensing patients) or ordering via our 24/7 repeat prescription line on 01522 754649.
