Welcome to Cowgill Surgery
CHANGES TO PRESCRIPTION ORDERING
As from the 3rd January 2017 the surgery will no longer be taking prescription orders over the telephone. The CCG has instructed all GP practices that pharmacies can no longer order repeat medications on your behalf.
Please contact the surgery as soon as possible so that we can explain how this will affect you and how to order your medications.
Rapid Access Patient Investigation & Diagnosis Portal (RAPID-P)
RAPID-P is an initiative currently being piloted by Westcliffe Health Innovations in response to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance recommending that patients presenting with long-lasting gastric (gut) symptoms are referred promptly for appropriate investigation.
If you are experiencing repeated or enduring gastro problems we recommend you complete a secure online assessment questionnaire which can be accessed by clicking here: RAPID-P
Your answers to the questions will be assessed immediately and you will be informed straight away whether your symptoms should be investigated further by your GP or local specialist clinic, and by what date you should be seen by a clinician.
For further information please visit the RAPID-P website

Our commitment to personal development enables our staff to become effective members of a caring, friendly, approachable team providing health promotion and prevention services to all patients.

The surgery premises are wheelchair accessible with a dedicated disabled parking bay outside the front entrance.
Self care is about individuals taking responsibility for themselves and their families to stay healthy and take care of minor and long term conditions, based on their knowledge and the information available and working in collaboration with health and social care professionals where necessary.
