Repeat Prescriptions Update

After introducing our new prescription handling process, a number of issues were encountered by all involved: patients, pharmacies and our own staff.

We have reviewed the issues, and have made some changes, with immediate effect. Our letter to you has been updated and can be found here. Our staff, as always, will endeavour to help you in any way they can, so if you are unsure how this will affect you, please ask. New notices will also be displayed in the surgery.

Appointments Online

Booking appointments online can sometimes be easier than using the telephone, and you can do it at any time of the day or night, whatever suits you.

If you haven't already done so, Sign up here. All sign-ups are reviewed during working hours, before being activated. Once activated we will send you login details and instructions.

Alternatively, ask at reception, or when you telephone us, and we will send you login details and instructions.

Updated Baby Clinic Schedule...

The health visiting team has published an updated schedule for child health drop-in clinics. More information about the team can be found here.

Online Access

NHS England require that we inform patients of our intent to provide, or availability of, online information for patients.

Our statement, which we will keep updated, can be found here.

Keeping our records up to date

If you move, or change any of your details (such as telephone number, email address), please let us know.

You do not need to make an appointment to do this, just fill in a form (available at reception) and hand it to the receptionist.

Can't Find It...

If you are having trouble locating something on our site, you might find it in the index (also shown at the bottom of every page).

Whooping Cough

Due to the increased risk of Whooping Cough The Department of Health is advising that we vaccinate all women between 28 and 38 weeks pregnant against Whooping Cough (Pertussis) to protect their babies.

If you are unclear about what to do to help protect your baby, you should contact your midwife, or the Practice.

We have a Q & A factsheet to help you, and more information can be found on NHS Choices.

Please Remember

We do not accept enquiries regarding your health via email or fax. If you need to enquire about health matters you should make an appointment to see, or speak to, a GP or Nurse.
