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.

We are pleased to announce that our previous GP Registrar Dr Sophie Lowe has now started at the practice as a part-time GP.

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.

For healthcare during winter please go to:- for advice.

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. 

Nurse Appointments Tuesday early morning - We have a Tuesday 07:00 nurse clinic, These are for Chronic disease reviews, Smears, Routine ECG, Spirometry and pill checks - pre-booked appointments only.

The GP extended surgery hours are currently on Monday evening (till 8pm). These are pre-bookable routine only. The Out of hrs service/111 will be running for any emergency appointments during the extended hours session.
We are looking for patients to join our Patient Participation group . We need a broad range of backgrounds/types of patients so if your interested get in touch either via the online form or asking at reception. If you would simply like to know more about it then please ask.
