Noticeboard

YES our phone lines are busy..... We have increased capacity from 5 to 15 phone lines but you will still find our lines are engaged at times. Please use e-consult to send us a message, request an appointment or chase results. You can even use it to request a callback to book a flu jab.

New Patient Registration 

To register with the practice you will need to complete a registration form and a contact form.

You do not need to provide legal identification or a medical card to register with us.

You will need photo ID if you wish to register for online services so it may save time if you provide this at the outset as you can register for both at the same time.

If you are on any medication you will need to make an appointment with the doctor before we can issue any medication. Please bring your printed repeat slip from your previous doctor or the medication packs.

Change of Name and/or Address

Please let us know of any change of name, address or telephone number in writing to enable us to keep our records up to date.  There is a form available from reception.

pdf A Patient Guide to GP Services

Information about your health and care helps us to improve your individual care, speed up diagnosis, plan your local services and research new treatments. The NHS is committed to keeping patient information safe and always being clear about how it is used.

How your data is used

Information about your individual care such as treatment and diagnoses is collected about you whenever you use health and care services. It is also used to help us and other organisations for research and planning such as research into new treatments, deciding where to put GP clinics and planning for the number of doctors and nurses in your local hospital.  It is only used in this way when there is a clear legal basis to use the information to help improve health and care for you, your family and future generations.

Wherever possible we try to use data that does not identify you, but sometimes it is necessary to use your confidential patient information.

You have a choice

You do not need to do anything if you are happy about how your information is used. If you do not want your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you can choose to opt out securely online or through a telephone service. You can change your mind about your choice at any time.

Will choosing this opt-out affect your care and treatment?

No, choosing to opt out will not affect how information is used to support your care and treatment. You will still be invited for screening services, such as screenings for bowel cancer.

What do you need to do?

If you are happy for your confidential patient information to be used for research and planning, you do not need to do anything.
