Exciting News on Prescriptions
From Thursday 20th March we will be introducing a new system that will enable us to send your prescriptions direct to your chosen pharmacy without printing. The service is called the Electronic Prescribing Service, no prescription form to be collected, just turn up at your chosen pharmacy 72 hours after submitting your request and collect your medicines. To let us know which pharmacy you choose, either tell our reception team or ask at your chosen pharmacy.
You are free to change your choice at any time. This is in no way connected to care.data or the summary care record, no additional patient data is shared.

Wheal Northey Surgery aims to serve its practice population by providing a first class primary care service that combines friendliness with professionalism.
We plan to use this surgery website to present all our patients with up to date news and information about our practices. We will keep it current with any developments or other details that we feel are relevant to you.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information.
Wheal Northey Surgery is pleased to be involved in research. We aim to improve the knowledge about illnesses and so develop better treatments for all our patients. To this end we are actively involved in research organised by the Local Clinical Research Network (LCRN): South West Peninsula. This is part of the NHS National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). We are also undertaking selected research projects from other sources which we feel will be of direct interest and benefit to our patients and the practice. This means that your GP may ask you if you want to be involved in a study the practice is conducting. If you would like further information about this please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please have a look around the site and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this website, making it a more useful, practical tool for everybody.
