Noticeboard

Chulmeigh Dispensary Opening Hours from 23.3.20

Due to staff shortages and increased medication requests, the dispensary opening hours for the collection of prescriptions at our Chulmleigh site will reduce to:

Monday to Friday - 9am to 12pm and 2pm to 5pm.

This will help the staff to work through the high volume of incoming medication requests and queries.

Dispensary Update - 26/03/2020 15.30

Medication Supply Issues

Our medication suppliers are experiencing on-going staff shortages which have impacted on our medicine deliveries. Currently only partial orders are arriving.

The practice would like to encourage those patients who do not take advantage of our monthly ordering system to use this, and order their next month’s supply at the time they collect their medication, we will then arrange a collection date in 28 day’s time for you. This enables the dispensing team to order your medication in advance; allowing the supplier’s adequate time to fulfil our order during this time.

 We thank you for your support and understanding

Dr Will SherlockWill Sherlock

Sheffield (1995) Mb.ChB

Dr Sherlock, graduated from University of Sheffield 1995. He worked as a junior doctor in Barnsley, Rotherham and Chesterfield and saw a lot of mining related lung disease. His first taste of general practice was working in Christchurch, New Zealand serving a deprived community. Dr Sherlock then returned to the UK to complete his GP training in Ross-on-Wye. Canoeing on the River Wye was great fun!

In 2002 he joined the Chulmleigh partnership after having worked as a locum GP in many of the North Devon practices. He likes evidence based medicine and one of his drivers is to minimise unnecessary and possibly harmful medicalisation. In many cases drugs aren't as good as making positive healthy lifestyle changes, it's cardiovascular exercise that keeps diabetes, depression and dementia at bay.

Dr Sherlock lives near Bideford with his partner and two children. He enjoys running, walking, gardening and housework.
