Patient notice: Ordering of prescriptions

Please be aware, patients can now order prescriptions:

Ensuring our patients can access Ashton GP Service via telephone in a timely manner is a key priority. Therefore, please note, from Friday, 2 April the practice is now unable to accept prescription requests over the telephone; this is to free-up the telephone lines for other patient queries. Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19 vaccination programme

Please be assured, patients will be contacted immediately when it's their turn to be vaccinated. The order in which we are offering the vaccine is based on advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

Patients are encouraged to make sure the practice holds the correct contact details, including telephone number and email address, as there may be circumstances whereby there is a short turn-around time to invite patients for a vaccine. To update your contact details please email ashtongpservice@nhs.net.

Further information is available here.

The NHS is currently under increased pressure due to the continued impact of Covid-19. This means that you may experience delays in the services provided at your GP practice. Please accept our sincere apologies and continue to check our website or follow us on Twitter for further updates.
