FLU CLINICS NOW AVAILABLE
We are aware that you are being asked by Pharmacists to have your flu jab with them and stating it takes the pressure off GP surgeries. We would prefer you to have the vaccination here as it gives our nurses an opportunity to see if there is anything outstanding in your records e.g. blood tests, blood pressure check etc.


If you are aged 65 or over, pregnant, or have a chronic condition (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, Chronic Kidney Disease, history of splenectomy etc.) you may be eligible for a flu jab.
Please contact Hickings Lane Medical Centre to book your flu appointment



Did you know that you can now order repeat prescriptions and book routine GP appointments online? If you would like access to this service please ask at reception or see our online services page for details.

Repeat Prescriptions

You can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • Send or hand in your request at reception
  • Order online via the link at the top of this page
  • Telephone our dedicated prescription line on 0115 9396764. The prescription line is open 11:30 – 12:30 and 17:00 – 18:00 daily.

Electronic Prescribing

Prescriptions can now be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.  Sign up with your preferred pharmacy to send prescriptions straight there – no need to collect from the surgery. Please ask at your pharmacy for more details.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
