Sadly, the virus attack did affect Layer Road Practice. Our computer systems are now up and running but we are facing a back log on repeat prescriptions, please bear with us during this time.
Everything humanly possible is being done to resolve the issues as urgently as possible.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Please contact reception for further information. If you would like a New Patient Medical Examination, please let our receptionists know and this will be booked for you. When registering, please bring with you proof of I.D and proof of Address.
When you require repeat medications, you can order this in a number of ways. Either by coming into the surgery and putting your request in, you can request your medication via email at firstname.lastname@example.org you can also order your medication online, please speak to a receptionist for further details.
Please always allow 48 hours for your prescription to be processed.
It is important to make the initial appointment as early as possible - at least 8 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
