Welcome to Alexandra Group Medical Practice
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 7th September 2020
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
IF YOUR CHILD IS FEELING UNWELL MAKE SURE YOU SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE- THE DOORS OF THE NHS ARE STILL OPEN. Please read the advice sheet under Further Information on the right hand side of this page.

Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
Please note the Practice will be closed on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 1pm for staff training. If you need medical advice while the surgery is closed please ring 111
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
In line with Department of Health Instructions all patients registered with our practice have been allocated a specific GP.
This does not mean that you have to see the GP who has been allocated to you, you are still able to see any GP of your choice as you currently do now.
At the Alexandra Surgery, reserved car parking spaces for the disabled are marked out near the left hand side entrance (as viewed from the front of the building). There is adequate wheelchair access to the building. There are WCs for disabled patients provided on both the ground and first floors. A lift is available. If access proves difficult to any of our disabled patients we would be happy to consider any suggestions for improvement.
