It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.

This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

Care navigation

Care Navigation allows our front-line staff to provide patients with more information about local health and wellbeing services, both within and outside of your GP Practice, in a safe, effective way. It means that patients will find it easier to get a GP appointment when they need one. 
When a patient contacts the practice, the receptionist / care navigator will ask for a brief outline of the problem, this isn’t about being intrusive, it is aimed to allow the care navigator to identify the patient’s need and provide information about services in the practice, other NHS providers and the wider care and support sector. Where appropriate, they will direct the patient to these services. All practice staff are governed by Data Protection & Confidentiality policies. 
The scheme is designed to help give patients choice, offering them support and guiding them to the right information about other health care professionals who have the expertise to deal with a range of health and care illnesses and injuries. It also supports patients to be seen by the right person at the right time and in the right place.  


NHS APP

You can now access your blood results, medical records, and request medications and appointments via the NHS app. This is an easier way of gaining information you may need or medication you may need, than ringing the surgery. If you are unsure on how to use the NHS app, or set this up, please contact the surgery and a member of the admin team will discuss this with you.

Important Information: This is a reminder that the surgery will be closed on Monday the 27th of May due to the bank holiday weekend, we will re-open as normal on Tuesday the 28th of May.

We want to get better at communicating with our patients. We want to make sure you can read and understand the information we send you. If you find it hard to read our letters or if you need someone to support you at appointments, please let us know.

We want to know if you need information differently for example in easy read format.

Do you use a hearing aid or communication tool? Please inform the receptionist when you arrive for your next appointment.

Non-urgent advice: Due to the Corona Virus we have changed the way that we work in our practice

Book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and set up medication reminders on your smartphone.

The easiest and fastest way to get any kind of help is with askmyGP.  It saves us time too, so please help us to help you.
