Welcome to Swallownest Health Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or make and cancel appointments.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Changes to the way you can order your prescriptions
A number of Rotherham GP practices have stopped the Pharmacy ordering service and now only accept orders from patients. This is to manage prescription issuing and reduce the amount of wasted medication which currently costs the NHS millions of pounds each year. It is very likely that Swallownest Health Centre will also do the same in the future. You will still be able to order by using the telephone order service, but the most efficient and safest way is to order your prescriptions using the on-line order service. If you are not yet registered for this call at our reception with some form of photographic identification and we will organise this facility for you.
From the 12th April 2016 the surgery has participated in the Electronic Prescribing Service. To reduce paper and save time you will be able to have your prescriptions sent to the pharmacy of your choice. For more detail click on the following link EPS Fact Sheet
