Welcome to Dr Shahs & Talpur Surgery at Hanford Health Centre
In the duration of this pandemic, the practice has cancelled online appointment booking.
Telephone consultations are in place and you may be invited to have a video consultation which requires your consent before commencing.
All prescriptions are now being sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy (EPS). Please ensure you nominate an appropriate pharmacy for prescription collection or delivery.*
We are suggesting that you obtain your online access for ordering of prescriptions. Please use either Patient Access or download the NHS App. To obtain a password and linkage key, your ID is required, again please contact reception as to how we can obtain this without you needing to present at the surgery.
*We need to bring to patient attention when selecting a nominated pharmacy to have their scripts delivered by post, that they are doing so with the understanding that postage presently may take longer!
Also, to be aware that if having any urgent medication such as antibiotics as an example, that you request the doctor issuing the medication does so to an alternative pharmacy and not a nominated one that only posts your medications as this will sufficiently delay receiving any urgent medication required.
