 Welcome to Balance Street Health Centre.

Important Information: Dr Seddon's departure

Following the departure of Dr Seddon at the end of November 2018, we hope that you can bear with us until we find a replacement GP. 
Due to the ever increasing demands on primary care nationally, we’re all having to make changes to the way we work in General Practice. You will find that our Reception Team will ask key questions so that they are able to triage your call to the most suitable member of the primary care team. 
We have appointed a small number of regular GPs and Nurse practitioner locums who have the skill sets to meet your continuity of care at this difficult time. 
Because of the situation we find ourselves in we have sign posted Dr Seddon's patients, but are unable to provide you with another Partner at the practice due to the existing Doctors lists being at capacity.
Balance Street Practice is the only practice in East Staffordshire to still offer a personal list and although this is our preferred method of working we are unable to accommodate individual requests to change GP.

Thank you for your patience from all the Partners at Balance Street Practice.

Our next Staff Training Day is 7th February 2019. The practice will close from 1:30. Dispensary will be closed from 1:30-4:30.

**NEW** Our practice is involved with a new Living Well program - please check back soon for more information under "clinics & services"

Repeat Prescriptions

pill_bottleIf you are taking repeat medications, you will be given a counterfoil with your medication details on. Please tick the items you require and place the counterfoil in the letter box provided, next to the dispensary. Due to the numbers involved, repeat prescription requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

Alternatively you can order your repeat medication online using the link at the top of this page. This service is available 24 hours a day and can be accessed through any computer, smartphone or tablet, whether at home or at work.

EMIS Access uses the highest internet security measures to ensure all patient information is safe and secure.

Re-ordering Service

If you find it difficult to attend the surgery twice in a few days, to order your repeat prescription and then again to collect your medication, why not sign up to our repeat prescription re-ordering service? The dispensary staff will automatically re-order your repeat prescription and provide you with a date your medication will be ready to collect. Please ask our dispensary staff for further 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.
