Consultation Document and Consultation Survey

The proposed changes are:

- to relocate services from The Welby Practice, Bottesford to the adjacent Belvoir Vale site

NHS Long Term Plan - As medicine advances, health needs change and society develops, the NHS has to continually move forward so that in 10 year’s time we have a service fit for the future.

The NHS Long Term Plan is drawn up by frontline staff, patients groups, and national experts to be ambitious but realistic.

Information Notice

Repeat Prescriptions - we have reverted back to two full working days for repeat orders.  In accordance with NHS guidance repeat prescriptions are, in general, issued as a one month supply.

Belvoir Vale Surgery has now merged with The Welby Practice

As there are two sites in Bottesford we will refer to the practice as The Welby Practice with the site name as Belvoir Vale or Welby Bottesford, the other locations are known as Harlaxton and Waltham.

You will notice some changes e.g. The Welby Practice header on letters, etc.

You will be able to book appointments with GPs, ANP, NP, Nurses and HCAs across all the sites.

Repeat Prescriptions 

Repeat prescriptions are recorded on our clinical system and can be re-ordered as required.  We do request that we are given a minimum of two full working days notice when ordering repeat prescriptions so that medication can be safely dispensed. In accordance with NHS guidance repeat prescriptions are, in general, issued as a one month supply.  Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

  • Phoning the dispensary and leaving a message on the answer phone
  • Ticking the medication you require on the repeat medication list which you get each time you order medication, and leaving this in at the dispensary
  • Ordering online. To do so you will require a username and password. The reception staff will be pleased to help you set this up if you liaise with them.
