General Practitioner Registrar and Students

Our practice is a training/teaching practice. Our GP registrar is a fully qualified doctor and has a great deal of hospital experience. GP registrars are attached to our practice for the purpose of their specialty training. They are at all times encouraged to seek advice when required from the qualified GPs.

We are also fortunate to have medical students attached to our practice for short periods. If you do not wish to have the student present during consultation please inform the reception staff prior to seeing the doctor.

When booking an appointment you may be offered an appointment with our GP registrars, unless you choose not to

Prescription Ordering Service

Prescriptions will no longer be ordered by your pharmacy from the 18th April 2017

We are going to take part in the pilot scheme where the POD service will take your request over the phone on the dedicated number and will process your prescription electronically.

You will be required to nominate a pharmacy to receive the electronic prescription.

Patients who have (4×7) dosette boxes can still order from the pharmacy.

Controlled Drugs can be ordered via the POD also.

The Whitehorse Well

 

The White Horse Surgery is proud to be helping save the lives of many people in Africa.

By using AquAid water coolers we have been donating to The Africa Trust. These funds are then used to build fresh drinking water wells in areas in Africa where it is needed the most, like in schools and villages.

We were selected to aid the project they are running which involves installing new style pumps in Gumede, Metuchire. The pump is built by the people of that area, they are taught how it works and how to repair is using local materials and parts.
