Message from Dr Paul Jacklin
It is with some sadness that I am informing you that I am leaving the Oaks medical centre as of 31/12/19. It is earlier than I would like, but sometimes even doctors get health issues they cannot completely overcome. It has been quite humbling to realise that I was not as indestructible as I thought I was!
We have worked very hard on succession planning at the Oaks over the last 3 years and I am confident in the team I leave behind. You are in good hands.
I wish you all well and can honestly say it has been a pleasure and an honour to serve you over the last 26 years whilst at the same time doing the job I always wanted to do.
Patient led prescription ordering -
Putting patients in control of their repeat prescriptions
Many GP surgeries across Nottinghamshire are no longer accepting repeat prescription requests from pharmacies for most patients. Our Doctors are asking patients to order their own medicines using one of the following options.
Online ordering via SystmOnline
Ask at reception for an application form for our online system
Drop off your repeat prescription directly—just post it in the box in reception
Post your repeat prescription request to The Oaks Medical Centre at the above address
We will no longer be accepting prescription requests via the pharmacy from January 2020. If you are worried that you or someone you know won’t be able to manage with this change please speak to us.
