From Saturday 13th January 2018 the Hub will be operating weekly.
Appointments are available between 8am and 12 midday.
Remember these are routine appointments which must be booked in advance. If you are a Dinnington Group Practice Patient please contact reception to book an appointment. If you are a patient from another practice which is being served by the Hub please contact your own practice reception.

TEXT MESSAGE REMINDERS
As from 1st February 2017, if we have your mobile phone number on our records we will send you a text reminder of your upcoming appointment. From this message you will also be able to cancel your appointment by replying to the text.
For more details please look at the attatchment that can be found in our appointment section.
From April 2017 the way you order your repeat prescription is changing.
From April your pharmacy will no longer be able to order your repeat prescriptions on your behalf. You (or your carer/nominated family member/friend) will have to order your repeat prescription directly from the GP Practice
You can still have repeat prescription requests sent to a pharmacy of your choice and your pharmacy will still be able to deliver prescriptions to your home if required. Pharmacies can continue to collect prescriptions from the GP Practice.
We are working with NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure the changes have minimal impact on our patients. There are a number of ways you can order your repeat prescription:
1. Complete the tear off slip to the right of your repeat prescription and hand it to reception at your registered practice.
2. Online (please remember you will need to sign up at Reception before using online services)
3. Post your repeat prescription request to your registered practice.
If you have any concerns regarding this change please speak to a Receptionist.
