Patient Information on Changes to our Practice
Due to advice on restricting unnecessary contact between people, some routine appointments may be suspended or conducted first through a telephone or video consultation. However working differently does not mean we are not here for you.
Our usual entrance will be locked. Please report to the reception office window located in the car park for all appointments, enquiries and prescription requests. Don't worry we have signs to guide you.
Remember to keep a safe distance from other patients.
The practice will undergo a full clean down between any face to face appointments which have been staggered to allow no more than 2 patients in at any one time.
Repeat prescriptions should be ordered using the NHS App or our online services.
We might look a little different as we will be wearing PPE such as masks and face visors. Don't worry it is still us.
We recommend that patients keep checking our website for up to date information on our services and the latest COVID-19 advice.
We are asking all patients to wear a face covering when on-site for the safety of staff and other patients.
The surgery is currently open to new NHS patients

We are obliged to inform all our patients that you now have a Named Allocated GP.
You can still see any GP of your choice and this does not affect your registration with the Practice. (Please note that the GP name at the bottom of your prescription is your allocated GP) If you wish to change this please let us know
Care Data and New GDPR Information
Patients and the Summary Care Record
The NHS in England is using an electronic record called the Summary Care Record (SCR) to support patient care.
The Summary Care Record is a copy of key information from your GP record. It provides authorised healthcare staff with faster, secure access to essential information about you when you need unplanned care or when your GP practice is closed.
You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or do not wish to have a summary care record, please speak to practice staff or download a copy of the leaflet “Patients and the summary care record”. You can complete an opt out form at the practice and hand it into the reception staff to process.
