Please allow 48 hours for prescription orders to be ready and do not call the surgery to ask if ready just collection from your designated place of collection - thank you to help us prevent incoming call congestion.
Please ask for your password to access online services - order your repeat medications, book GP appointments and see a summary of your medical records - for full access of your records you need to apply for authorisation. Please come into reception to ask for your online username/password (please bring ID) and help.
Electronic prescribing is now available from the Practice. Your prescriptions can now be sent electronically to a nominated chemist. This means that you don't have to wait for the chemist to collect your paper medication script or for you to come to the surgery to collect your medication script. If this is of interest to you please contact reception or go to your pharmacist of choice to set this up.
All registered patients at the practice are designated to a named GP. Having a named GP on your records does not affect whom you choose to see. You can call the surgery to check who your named GP is.
To maintain continuity for your medical care we advise that you try to see the same GP if you are coming for an ongoing problem.
Please have a look at our 'Minor illness' section under the further information area below. It includes useful advice with regards to coughs/colds/flu and diarrhoea management.
Dont forget that your local pharmacy can offer advice for minor ailments giving over counter remedies or medication if you are entitled to free prescriptions. This can often be the better treatment as antibiotics do not work on viral infections and common minor ailments.
SMS service - We have a system where we can send appointment confirmation, reminders and test results via SMS/text messaging. If this interests you please can you update your telephone including mobile numbers with the receptionist.
In addition to general medical consultations we are pleased to be able to provide specialist clinics and services covering the following areas:
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete the questionnaire first. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required. The nurse will contact you to advise. Not all travel vaccinations are covered by NHS.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to put your enquiry in as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as an appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work and some are courses.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form as no appointment to see the nurse can be offered until the questionnaire is received.
