New Telephone System


On Thursday 25th January 2018, Milton House Surgery is changing to a new telephone system and provider. This will feature call queuing and will eliminate the engaged tone that callers can experience during busy periods, improving telephone access to the surgery.


Changing telephone providers can be a tricky process and we ask that patients check the practice website for announcements should they experience problems getting in touch with the surgery around 25th January 2018. We will have mobile telephone backup available during the handover period.

Repeat Prescriptions

Did you know that over-ordering or wasting prescription medicines costs the NHS in this part of Hertfordshire around £3 million each year?

Click here to read about some simple things we can all do to prevent waste.

The money that is wasted on prescribed medicines that are not used could be spent on employing more nurses, running additional ambulances and other vital health services.

Remember:

  • Keeping excessive stocks of medicines at home could be dangerous for you and others.
  • It is not safe to take a medicine that hasn't been prescribed for you or that is out-of-date.
