More links and information

Repeat prescriptions

Since the end of September, instead of ringing Crich Medical Practice to order a repeat prescription, patients need to ring the centralised NHS Derbyshire Medicines Order Line (01246 588860) between 9-4pm Monday to Friday.

The CPPG and the surgery have had reports of long waits for the new number to answer, and people running out of their medicines. The CPPG have raised this problem with the surgery on your behalf. The surgery suggests that you avoid calling at peak times (first thing Mondays and Tuesdays). Whatever way you order prescriptions, don’t leave it until the day you run out to reorder your medication – keep an eye on your stocks and order a bit further ahead, remember it can take up to 4-5 days. The online methods of ordering from the surgery are still available if you have access to the internet, or you can still drop the Repeat Prescription slip off at the surgery to order.

Lloyds pharmacy opening hours

Lloyds pharmacy opening hours are as follows:

Weekdays:
08.45 to 18.00

Saturday
09.00 to 13.00

Please note that prescription preparation takes 4-5 working days for regular prescription medication so order well in advance of running low.

Lloyds Pharmacy charges for local prescription deliveries – £30/six months for one person or £45/six months for a household. One off emergency deliveries are £5.

South Wingfield Dispensary opening hours

For reference South Wingfield Dispensary is now dispensing from dispensary window, on the side of the building to the left of the main entrance. It is well signposted.

HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN IN THE CRICH AREA: October Half-term 2021

Following the success of the holiday activities in the Summer, we are pleased to say that we have organised two days of holiday clubs and an Adventure Day at Lea Green during the half term holiday this October.

We are using the  funding from Derbyshire County Council, to subsidise the cost of the activities for all children. The activities are free for children who receive pupil premium.

Booking opens tomorrow, Wednesday 6th October, for all children.

The activities that we are running are:

Two days of Holiday Clubs

Premier Education will be running a Holiday Club for two days at Crich Junior School on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th October 2021. These Holiday Clubs have been extremely popular in the past.

Due to the funding from Derbyshire County Council, the cost will be just £5.00 PER DAY and FREE for CHILDREN ENTITLED TO PUPIL PREMIUM. Lunch will be provided for each child attending every day as part of this price.

The Holiday Clubs will run from 9:00 – 15:00 each day. The Clubs will be open to children aged 5 – 11. Children should bring a water container and some snacks for the day; they will not need to bring a packed lunch as this is provided.

At the holiday club, children will take part in a wide range of activities including sports such as football, basketball, cricket, dodgeball and also some arts and crafts activities.

In order to book a place for your child please go to www.premier-education.com or click on the link below to go straight to the booking page for each venue. Parents of pupil premium children please use code WJM/100 to book for free. We will check with the school that any bookings made using this code are children who qualify for pupil premium funding. Any bookings made with this code for children who do not qualify will be cancelled.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU PUT THE SCHOOL YOUR CHILD ATTENDS WHEN BOOKING AS WE NEED THIS FOR FUNDING PURPOSES.
