New Telephone System

On Tuesday 10th May we adopted a new telephone system. We would like to thank patients for their patience during this transition period.
All incoming and outgoing calls will be recorded for monitoring and training purposes. 

COVID-19 Vaccinations

We ware currently vaccinating patients aged 75 and above and those who are immunocompromised as part of the governments spring booster campaign.  If you fall in either of these groups and it is 6 months since last vaccination and haven't been contacted yet but would like the booster please call the surgery.

  • You can request your repeat prescriptions online and even get it straight from your nominated pharmacy. No paper, no visit to surgery! It will be faster for you to get your medication, no paper included so save some trees, and might release a bit of our staff time.

Appointments:
These can be made at the desk or by telephone. We offer appointments  2 weeks  ahead of the appointment date. Currently we only offer medically urgent appointments on the day.

Seeing Your Doctor

childconsultYou are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but it is best for all if you consider one of us as your usual doctor whenever possible. You will find it easier to follow through an illness with the doctor who first attended you.

Patients aged 16-75 who have not attended the surgery within the last 3 years and patients over 75 who have not participated in a consultation in the last 12 months can request a consultation even if they consider themselves to be “fit and well”. The Practice will make such enquiries and undertake such examinations as appear to be appropriate in the circumstances.

Unfortunately Doctors and Nurses can sometimes be delayed in seeing you at your allotted appointment time. This is usually due to emergency situations or a previous patient needing to be seen for longer than the 10 minute appointment time. We would ask that you bear with us at these times (one day you may be that patient needing extra time with the Doctor or Nurse). However, if you cannot wait, please see the Reception staff to rearrange your appointment.
