Welcome to Forest Hall Medical Group Website.

There has been a Medical Clinic on this site since the early 1960’s. We are proud to offer high quality health care to the population of Forest Hall and surounding area.

 

If you want to make an appointment with a doctor or nurse, please phone the main surgery number and speak to a receptionist.

We offer advanced booking with the GPs up to 3 months in advance.  We would encourage you to try and see the same doctor for an ongoing problem or condition.

For an urgent appointment on the same day, please ring as early as possible and identify that you need to see a GP urgently.

You can make an appointment with a nurse without seeing the doctor first.

The cost to NHS of wasted appointments

Did you know that missed appointments cost the NHS thousands of pounds every year?

Please phone the surgery as soon as possible if you cannot attend.  This will help us to make appointments available to as many patients as possible.

You can request a repeat prescription of your regular medication either by phoning the surgery on the Prescription Line, faxing it to the surgery, via the website or by leaving a request at the reception.

You should allow at least 48 hours before you need to collect your prescription.

When ordering your repeat prescription on the ‘phone it is important to only say the names of the medication you need and not just ask for a repeat of all your prescriptions.

If you are on more than one medication, try and order them all at the same time.

If ordering at reception please use the list on the right side of your repeat prescription and tick which items you require and hand in to the receptionist.

Prescriptions can be collected after 10.00 a.m.

Someone else can collect for you if they are over the age of 16 and can show your repeat prescription slip (this is to prevent unauthorised access to your medication and to reduce the risk of confusion).

Prescriptions can also be posted out if you provide a stamped addressed envelope to the surgery.

The telephone  prescription line is open 24 hours with the exception of bank holidays Tel: (0191) 259 9997

Or:

Fax it through on (0191) 259 9696

Allow 2 working days (48 Hours) for your prescription to be processed.
