Due to the Coronavirus outbreak please be aware that all GP/ANP appointments at the surgery will now be telephone triaged first. This allows our GP’s/ANP’s to triage all appointment requests and adhere to the safety precautions in place at the surgery as per the most up to date advice from NHS England.
This means that booking face to face appointments via our online and automated systems have temporarily been disabled, please ring reception to book a triage appointment.

Patients with Respiratory Conditions
The advice on social media that you should get rescue medication from your GP surgery if you have ANY respiratory conditions is NOT TRUE.
If you do not usually have a rescue pack (and this applies to most patients with a respiratory condition), you do not need one now.

** The telephone call back system has now stopped **
Please be aware that we are no longer offering a telephone call back service with the doctor.
We frequently review our services in order to ensure that we are providing our patients with the safest possible care.
In place of the call back system we are pleased to be able to offer up to 100 additional face-to-face appointments every week.
Note; this change does not affect the telephone appointments that are offered to discuss routine test results.
We are using a system called Care Navigation. This means that when you phone the surgery for an appointment you will be asked by the receptionist the nature of your problem. The reception staff have been asked to do this by the GP’s. Although you may feel uncomfortable in telling the reception staff what the problem is, please remember you only need to give minimal details e.g. ‘mental health’ or ‘sore throat’. By sharing this information on the phone the receptionist can book your appointment with the clinician most suited to dealing with that problem as well as helping the clinician to prepare for your appointment by reading through relevant parts of your health record.

Sharing Your Information To Improve Your Care
We are proposing to sign up to a new system which will allow health and social care professionals from outside the GP practice directly involved in your care to view the most up-to-date information about you . This allows the professionals caring for you to more fully understand your needs and means you only have to tell your history once.
You will be asked for your consent whenever a professional outside the GP practice wishes to view your record. If you do not wish your information to be shared in this way please let us know. For further information please see these Frequently Asked Questions or read our Privacy Notice which gives full details of how we use and share your information.
Accessible Information Standard
The Accessible Information Standard is a new law (2016) to make sure that people who have a disability, impairment or sensory loss are given information they can easily read or understand.
Individuals most likely to be affected by the Standard include people who are blind or deaf, who have some hearing and/or visual loss, and people with a learning disability. However, this list is not exhaustive.
If you feel that this applies to you or someone in your care, please inform a member of staff, we will then do our best to meet these needs. You need to help us to make sure we get things right for you.
You can find more information about the Accessible Information Standard on the NHS England website: www.england.nhs.uk/accessibleinfo
