James Fisher Medical Centre is not associated with any one pharmacy, we work alomgside most pharmacies within Bournemouth and a few beyond. If you have a problem with your current pharmacy you are at liberty to change to another just let us know so we can update your records. Any complaints about a pharmacy should be addressed directly with the pharmacy or their head office.
The Surgery will be closed from 3.30 pm to 6.30 pm on Wednesday 13th September 2017 for mandatory staff training.

All patients at this practice are allocated a named GP (this is your registered GP). Should you wish to know who this is please ask the receptionist or clinician at your next visit. You are still able/welcome to book appointments with the GP of your choice but your registered GP is responsible for your overall care.
Introducing the Electronic Prescribing Service
James Fisher Medical Centre has introduced the Electronic Prescription Service. This should make collecting repeat prescriptions easier and more convenient for you as this service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the pharmacy you choose to get your regular medication or appliances from. Your GP will then send your prescription electronically to them directly and your medication will be ready for you to collect in about two working days. This will therefore save you a trip to the surgery just to collect a prescription form.
Further details are available in the information sheet below.
