In common with other surgeries, we are receiving an increase in volume of prescription requests.  Also, GPs are having to undertake more stringent safety checks when issuing repeat prescriptions.  It is therefore with regret that with immediate effect we require 48 working hours notice (2 days excluding weekends) from receipt of a prescription request to collection by the patient.

We recognise this will be inconvenient for some of you, but unfortunately we have no alternative.

This will also bring us in line with other surgeries as the national standard is 72 hours .

Please note, if you send a prescription request to  you will now receive an automatic reply via email which lets you know your email has been received.

Dr Simon Haworth Retirement

Dr Haworth is retiring at the end of November, after more than 21 years as a partner at Posterngate Surgery. Originally from Blackpool, Dr Haworth joined the practice when it was Park Street Surgery in August 1993, having moved to Brayton from Chester with his wife.

Prior to joining the practice, Dr Haworth was an Army GP for 6 years. He has served in a number of different countries including Germany and Hong Kong. It was in Hong Kong that he met his wife who was an Army nurse.

Since 1993, Dr Haworth has regularly held weekly surgeries at Hemingbrough. Originally this was a drop-in clinic with no appointment system or computerised patient notes. After one very memorable evening surgery when some 37 patients arrived to be seen, it was decided to introduce an appointment system.

Dr Haworth is a very keen golfer, along with his wife and they both enjoy travelling. Many of their trips include competing in golf competitions worldwide. Dr and Mrs Haworth plan to continue exploring the world, starting with a Caribbean cruise in January 2015.

We would like to wish Dr Haworth the very best in his retirement.

Family and Friends Test


The Friends and Family Test is a way for all patients to give feedback quickly and have their say on the care and treatment they experience across the NHS in England. It helps to improve local healthcare services for everyone by highlighting what is working well and what can be improved, by taking your views into account.

The short video below, shows how the friends and family test works.
