Ordering Medication via AskMyGp

As of the 4th July we will no longer be processing orders for acute or repeat prescriptions requests via askmygp.
We will be using the service only for queries relating to advice from a Nurse Practitioner or GP.

Please use SystmOne online to order your medication going forward if you have access to this. If you need to be granted access to this service please do one of the following:
1. Attach a photo of yourself holding photo ID to an askmygp request, we can then email you log in details for online services
2. Come to the Reception Desk at the surgery with your photo ID, we can then email you log in details for online services

If you need to request medication for your child or we can link online accounts so you can order on their behalf. Please clearly provide their details (Name, DOB and address).

If you have any queries please call Reception on 01476 348484 and we will be happy to help.

5th May

Surgery Car Park

As of 3rd May there will be no disabled access to St Johns Medical Centre Car Park.


We have, unfortunately, had to make this decision due to ongoing damage to staff cars. We have not been able to trace the drivers who have caused the damage as they have unfortunately not declared this to the surgery.

Patients with a blue badge can park on Station Road just outside of the car park entrance.


We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Masks in General Practice

Face Coverings in General Practice

Following the latest guidance from the NHS, we can now share that face coverings within the Practice are no longer required and will be down to personal preference.

The use of facemasks by patients is now optional but we would encourage those attending with a cough or other respiratory symptoms to continue wearing one whilst in the building. 

Our staff are also no longer required to wear a mask in non-clinical areas of the practice, but the clinicians will continue to do so in some appointments.

Advice regarding masks is reviewed regularly and if this changes we will update you.
