Middle chare surgery has extended its opening hours - we are now open until 8pm Monday to Thursday.

Due to funding been removed by our local CCG, saturday morning clinics will not continue after the end of April 2015. We are saddened by this news and if we can find an alternative to start the service again we will do so.

We have recently employed 2 new Doctors Dr Jennifer Rickard and Dr Amy Rhodes, both of these doctors will be working between Middle Chare Surgery and Woodlands Surgery.

We have also taken on a long term locum Dr Mark Randle, who will be with us until at least the new year period. 

Plan to Meet GMS / PMS 2015-16 Contractual Requirement for Patient Online Service


This practice plans to offer the facility for patients to view online, export or print detailed coded information held in their own records from 31st March 2016.


These dates are subject to the necessary NHS GP systems and software being available to the practice.


This practice currently offers the facility for patients:

  • to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances

We will publicise and promote our online services to our practice’s patients through the practice website, practice waiting room leaflets, posters and the Patient Participation Group.

We now use EMIS access for repeat prescriptions ordering online. Please speak to a receptionist who will provide more details.

Repeat Prescription Collection Service

If you take medication on repeat prescription you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by several of the local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises. If you wish to take advantage of this service you can find out which pharmacies participate by phoning your usual pharmacist or asking at the surgery reception.
