We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations. Due to high demand this year we are trying to vaccinate our highest risk patients first. If you have received a text from the practice asking you to book in please ensure you call the practice as soon as you can. 

Celebrating our volunteers!


NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

  •       you think you might have coronavirus;
  •       in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk   of coronavirus;
  •       you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.


Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Call 119 to book a test.

Other changes:

From the 28th June 2018 the surgery is changing the process in which patients can cancel their appointments. The surgery now offers patients 2 options in which to cancel their appointment

  1. Call the surgery option 1 and leave a voice message to cancel appointment
  2. Online patient access (You need to be registered to use this service)

In addition to the process in which patients can cancel their appointment a new policy has been implemented which requires patients to give a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel an appointment. Any cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice will be recorded as ‘did not attend’ and patients with 3 ‘did not attend’ in a 12 month period could be removed from the patient list.

Any patients canceling an appointment with less than 24 hours noticed will be asked to use the 3 options available as outlined above, the reception team will only be able to cancel appointments with more than 24 hours notice. 

All telephone calls between the hours of 8am & 9am are for booking an appointment only, we ask all patients to call after 9am for other general enquires.

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support

Electronic Prescribing

The Electronic prescription service is available in our practice. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

If you collect your prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit the practice to pick up paper prescriptions. Instead the GP will send them electronically to a pharmacist you choose saving time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medications from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.

If you would like to use this service you need to choose a pharmacy or appliance contractor for the practice to send your prescription to. This is called a nomination, and you can either do this at your chosen pharmacy or at the practice. You DO NOT need a computer to have this service.

If you would like more information ask your pharmacy or the practice. (20/05/2015)
