E-Consult

Our surgery is now using E-consult  - this is an online guide that gives you 24/7 access to medical advice and allows you to contact the surgery electronically during our opening hours only (see home page for more details)


As our telephone lines remain extremely busy, please email any COVID19 vaccination queries to admin.mailboxf81113@nhs.net

Please note, as with other businesses, we are also suffering from staff illness and staff who need to work from home, and as such we are short staffed at the surgery. Please be patient with Receptionists who are working hard to accommodate all requests. Thank you.

DNA's for September


During the last month we had 144 wasted appointments which equates 29 hours or 1 doctor not seeing patients for 3 1/2 half days. If you no longer need to attend, please cancel your appointment. You can do this by using Systmonline / nhsapp, responding to your text message reminder or calling the surgery (Lunchtimes the phone lines are much quieter). Together we can ensure we bring this number down and stop wasting appointments that other patients need.

You will be registered with the group practice but you may wish to request to have a “preferred” GP of your choice. Please feel free to arrange this with the receptionist at your registration.

At your registration appointment, the nurse will discuss your medical history and undertake a BP and weight check. She will ask you to produce a urine sample (if you have not brought one with you, a bottle can be obtained from reception prior to your appointment).

If you are taking any regular medication, including contraception, you should bring the packets with you for the nurse to record. Please ensure that you book a routine appointment with the doctor to obtain your first prescription from this surgery.

Children under the age of five are not required to attend a new patient registration appointment. However, we will require some important information, such as immunisation history, and the receptionists will give you a form to complete to this effect.
