If you are on repeat medication you will need to see a doctor first to authorise your inclusion on to our repeat prescription system.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

 

Allocated GP

From 1st April 2015 all patients are allocated to a named Gp who will be overall responsible for your care whilst a patient at this practice.

If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the reception for information.  If you wish to change your named GP please contact the surgery and we will change this for you.

All patients can continue to see the GP of their choice, regardless of who has been nominally assigned as their "named gp".

All patients can continue to book the soonest available appointment with any GP or book the next available appointment with the GP of your choice.

Patients with complex needs do tend to see one GP for continuity of their care and we would strongly encourage those patients to continue to do so

 

Guide to GP Services

The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them.  You can download the guide below.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
