We will make every effort so that you see your doctor of choice at your convenience. However, there are several alternatives available such as an appointment with a Practice Nurse or Healthcare Assistant, or a telephone consultation with a GP. If in doubt, ask our Reception staff who would be the most appropriate person for you to see.
If you cannot keep an appointment, please let us know in plenty of time so we can offer it to someone else.
OUT OF HOURS: To access services outside normal surgery hours, please call 111. You will be given advice or directed to the appropriate service. Calls are charged at local rate.
Please note that all calls to 111 are recorded.
In the case of serious emergency such as severe chest pain, breathlessness, haemorrhage, collapse or fall, ring 999 for an ambulance.
Change of Address
It is very important that you advise us of any change of address and telephone number.
Our Practice Manager is responsible for dealing with complaints against the Practice.
Ideally a complaint should be made within 12 months of the event or of your becoming aware of the event.
Outside of that period it may not be possible to conduct a fair and thorough investigation. Complaints may be made orally or in writing. For a copy of our Complaints Procedure, please click here.
We offer a range of contraceptive services including long-acting reversible contraception and the coil. Our doctors would be pleased to discuss the options available to you.
Our flu clinics usually start at the beginning of October. These are on Saturday mornings as advertised in the local press and in the surgery. Clinics are by appointment only and only for those patients in eligible groups as advertised at the time.
Visits are for those patients who are too ill or disabled to come to the Surgery. They should not be used for convenience or transport reasons. Whenever possible, please phone for a visit before 10.30 and give some detail of the problem so the doctors can plan their calls.
The Data Protection Act (1998) gives you the general right to see or have a copy of the information in your health record.

If you wish to have a copy, there will be a charge for administration. If your doctor feels that seeing your records might put you or someone else at risk, you will only be shown part of your records or your request may be declined.
