Electronic prescribing

We are now offering the Electronic Prescription Service.

This service gives you the option to 'nominate' the pharmacy where you get your repeat medication from. You request your repeat in the usual way and the pharmacy will receive your prescription direct from us electronically. This will save you a trip to the Surgery to collect your prescription form. You can nominate a pharmacy close to your home or where you work.

You can 'nominate' your pharmacy by phoning us or by fillling out a form at Reception.

New MIAMI clinics

If all of our ‘on the day’ urgent appointments are fully booked, our reception team may offer you an appointment at the new MIAMI clinic. 

The MIAMI (Minor Injury Assessment & Minor Illnesses) clinic is a new service being launched by 19 local GP practices across Adur and Worthing. 

At the MIAMI clinic you will be seen by a GP, nurse, or paramedic practitioner, who – with your consent – will have access to your medical record.

Texting Service

We text patients to remind them of their appointment at the Surgery. If you have given us your mobile number then you will automatically be reminded of your appointment by text the day before. If you would prefer not to have these reminders then please advise the Reception Team.
