We are in the process of changing our appointments system to an online system. This will go live on 11 July.
As a stepping stone to the new system we have had to stop booking appointments ahead but this is a temporary arrangement.
A new icon will appear on this website soon to allow you to register for our new online appointments service called AskMyGp. This should allow you access to a GP online throughout the working day. If you register for this service you will no longer have to wait in a telephone queue!
Watch this space...... and thank you for bearing with us through this changeover period
Telephone Advice Your doctor will be happy to give you advice on the telephone when he/she is not consulting. The receptionist will ask you to leave a message and the doctor will return your call when time permits.
Out of Hours If you require urgent medical attention outside surgery opening times. Please call the NHS 111 Service. This free to call number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Test Results Please telephone the surgery after 9.30am for your test results
Patient Groups are a great way for patients and GP surgeries to work together to improve services and to promote health. We are really pleased to be able to introduce your very own patient group.
The twelve members of the Patient Group joined in response to a poster campaign at the surgery and the first meeting took place on 26th July 2011. We are really pleased that the group is proving very popular with full representation at the present time. We will be holding a waiting list however should anyone wish to join in the future.
We look forward to hearing patients’ views and ideas and to working together for the benefit of the practice and patients. Minutes are posted on this website. We have recently run a very successful Dementia Awareness Evening, and are looking to run more evenings like this in the future.
We are trying to reach as many representative patients as possible and appreciate not everyone is able to give their time to our patient group. We are therefore setting up a 'virtual patient group' so that as many patients as possible are able to share their views on a more regular basis online. For further information and to find out how to join please see the further information screen to the right of this page. Just click on 'sign up for our patient group' to find out how.
We look forward to hearing from you.
