Saturday Surgery

Due to changes in GP services locally, mainly the new GP Hub at Boroughbury Medical Centre and the new Integrated Urgent Care Service (IUC) accessible via 111, we will no longer offer emergency appointments on a Saturday morning from December 2017. There are a number of services in place to deal with our patients’ urgent care needs on weekends and we will continue to offer pre-booked appointments at Yaxley Group Practice. 

The Rowlands Pharmacy will be open as usual to collect medication that you have already ordered. There will be no facility at Yaxley Group Practice to have a repeat prescription issued on a Saturday.  

If you have forgotten to order your prescription and it is urgent you should speak with your pharmacist for advice and/or dial 111. 

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online or in writing and it takes 48 hours to process the request (please note this does not include the time required for your chosen Pharmacy to dispense the prescription). Please be aware that repeat prescriptions are not processed on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. 

Reports, letters and forms can still be collected from the Practice on Saturday for an interim period.
