In line with Government Guidelines, from Monday 15th June all patients, carers and visitors attending Buntingford Medical Centre or The Puckeridge Surgery are required to wear a face covering. We thank you for your co-operation and ongoing support during this time.
Please see our dedicated Coronavirus page if you have any concerns relating to Covid 19.
Due to the current Coronavirus situation and for the continued safety of our patients, we will no longer be issuing paper Prescriptions.
If you already have a nominated pharmacy then please collect your prescription from them in the normal way.
If you do not have a nominated pharmacy you can go to any pharmacy of your choosing to collect your prescription as the pharmacy can download it off a central database.
This will take effect as of the 13th May 2020.

Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus, The Buntingford & Puckeridge Medical Practice has made the decision to reduce the number of patients coming into the surgery. This is to minimise the risk of contracting the virus for both our staff and patients.
Please avoid visiting the surgery, unless you have been advised to do so by one of our GP's.
We are converting more appointments to telephone and will be encouraging electronic prescribing and ask that anyone that has symptoms of a cough or cold, not to come to the surgery.
If you are concerned you have Coronavirus please stay at home and visit NHS 111 online https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19.
Prescription requests can be completed online via SystmOnline or forms are available on our website or outside the surgery which can be completed and posted through the letter box.
We would also ask that you are understanding to our staff who are under increased pressure at this current time.'
If you need to request a prescription and do not currently have access to online services please print and post the below form. This can be posted either through one of our letter boxes or via Royal Mail. Please note you will need to collect your prescription from a nominated pharmacy and not the surgery.
To try and ease pressure on the Pharmacies and ensure that there is enough stock of medication, please do not order your prescription more than one week before it is due as we may not process it. Thank you.
