Please note we are aware of the national supply shortage of HRT currently in the UK. Your pharmacist is able to issue you with a suitable alternative in the first instance from stock, they will also advise of stock locally available in other pharmacies and should not ask you to return to the practice. The dispensing of HRT medication has been limited to 3 months' worth, but if you have a prescription for more than 3 months' worth you will not have to pay an additional prescription charge.

Proposed merger with Chapel Lane Surgery - important information for all patients of The Hollies Family Surgery
09 May 2022
In early 2021, The Hollies Family Surgery arranged to work more closely with the partners at Chapel Lane Surgery, with both practices sharing responsibility for the delivery of services for The Hollies.
Since May 2021, both practices have continued to operate as 'stand alone' practices with their own reception and administrative staff but clinical staff have worked across both sites.
We are now looking at making this a more formal merger with the management and administrative functions of the two practices which will benefit patients, clinicians and support staff.
Please read the following document which explains this proposal in detail:
After you have read the above document, please click here to fill in a patient survey about the proposed merger. If you require a hard copy of the survey to fill out, please enquire at reception.
We continue to ask patients to please wear a face mask, if they are not exempt, while visiting the surgery.
Please contact the surgery by telephone or eConsult first if possible before visiting the surgery in person.
You can interact with the surgery online using the eConsult service which you will find on this website. Here you can request a fit note/sick note, get advice from a clinician about common ailments and request treatments. You will receive a response by the end of the next working day.
