Hawkhill Medical Centre
Welcome along to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.
One Click Away
Convenience doesn’t stop there and you can now access a number of services online. Ordering a repeat prescription is just a click away.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the Practice Nurse at least 6-8 weeks before the date of travel to discuss your travel arrangements.
We require a travel assessment form to be completed for each patient travelling. Please click here to download our travel assessment form. The form must be completed before any travel screening appointment can be made, please ensure you bring your completed form to your appointment.
We cannot provide advice on complex vaccination schedules, anti-malaria recommendations or travel prescriptions.
We can only provide the following travel vaccinations: Tetanus/Polio/Typhoid/Hepatitis A & Diptheria.
For further travel information, please click on Clinics & Services tab at top of home page.
Failure to Attend Appointments
Due to an increase in the number of wasted appointments (average 174/month) through patients failing to attend appointments without informing the surgery, it has become necessary to implement the following policy:
"If you fail to attend appointments you may be removed from this practice list and required to find an alternative doctor"
If you cannot attend your appointments for any reason please let us know as soon as possible, giving at best 24 hour notice. We can then offer the appointment to someone else.
Same Day Prescription Requests
Please allow sufficient time for the Practice Team to process your request. By law all prescriptions must be reviewed and appropriately prescribed. We cannot, therefore, guarantee that your request will be processed the same working day.
Please make every effort to request your prescription(s) at least 48-hours before they are required.
Our administration staff, and the Hawkhill website, can provide details about the ways in which prescriptions may be requested.
Thank you for your understanding.
