Access the surgery during social distancing

Filed under: News — Laura Mathias @ 4.37 pm

Want to know how you can access the University surgery during the covid-19 pandemic? Here’s a message from the medical team:

Repeat prescriptions

  • Prescriptions can be sent to pharmacies within England.  This will avoid the need for our patients to register as temporary residents at practices near their homes.
  • Prescriptions sent electronically should be available for collection from the nominated pharmacy that day.
  • For those on repeat medications, the easiest way to order them is to send an e-mail to the Health Centre stating what medications you would like issuing and which pharmacy you would like the prescription sent to by providing the postcode.
  • We can do reviews of medication and chronic conditions over the phone.


  • We are still offering telephone and video consultations with patients
  • If clinically necessary, we are offering face to face appointments for those still in the Colchester area.

Got a question? Call the surgery on 01206 794484. 

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
