Noticeboard

 Computers offline Tuesday 22nd - Wednesday 23rd June

Our computer systems are being replaced and upgraded on Tuesday and Wednesday 22nd and 23rd June.  This is essential as the computers we are using are unreliable and slow.  We will have little or no access to medical records on these days and we will have fewer clinical staff on site due to social distancing rules.

As a result, we will only be able to deal with medical emergencies.  We will not be able to issue acute or repeat prescriptions on those days, so please consider ordering early if you think you will run out.

We have been very busy recently, and we understand that this is a further frustation.  We thank you for your patience.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE SURGERY TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OR TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION.  PLEASE GO HOME AND TELEPHONE RECEPTION.

 

Clinics & Services

Chronic Disease Management

For most of the long term follow up of chronic disease management, e.g. cardiovascular, asthma, bronchitis etc., there are no set clinics. This enables the patients to make an appointment time that is suitable to them. Please tell the receptionist when you make your appointment what it is for so that she can allocate a longer time, if appropriate.

Clinics

doctor_baby_girlPost-Natal:  When you have your baby, please notify the surgery within 48 hours of the birth. This is so we can arrange for your post-natal care. 

Immunisation and Baby: Please register your new baby with the practice and with our Child Health Surveillance Programme. When you do this, your child will be seen at regular intervals by the health visitor and GP. 

Special Services:
