Patient Access - Your new on-line service portal
We have upgraded our system and now offer you improved on-line services. This is the new way to request repeat prescriptions and make appointments, 24 hours a day. You can also see your recorded allergies and immunisation status. In the future, using this portal we hope to offer you access to your latest results and a summary of your medical history.

Your named GP
The government have made it a contractual requirement for all patients to have a named or allocated GP. This has been the case since the inception of the NHS then they changed it a few years ago. Now they have changed it back!. All patients have a named GP. If you are not sure who yours is, please ask at the practice. We will be trying our best to tell you anyway when we see you.

Out Of Area Registrations
You may be aware that the government is introducing a scheme designed to allow patients to register with any practice in the country. We have carefully examined all the documents relating to this scheme. As a practice we feel this scheme has not been well thought out and implementing it at this stage could be damaging to continuity of patient care.
With regret therefore, we will not be participating at the moment. We will of course carefully observe how the scheme pans out and when we are satisfied patient care will be enhanced and not harmed we will reconsider our participation.
