Hepatitis A Vaccine shortage

We would like to make all patients who are travelling abroad aware that there is currently a national shortage of the Hepatitis A vaccine.  The companies who manufacture the vaccine are unable to say when this will become available therefore patients may not be able to have this before they travel.

Patient Online Services

We now have over 3000 patients who are using our on-line service Patient Access to book appointments, order prescriptions, There is also an option to view your medical record including test results and hospital letters. For more information CLICK HERE

Do you know who your allocated GP is?

As part of our contract we must now inform all patients which GP they are registered with at the surgery. This is simply an administrative task and you are still able to continue seeing the GP of your choice. If you do not know who your allocated GP is, ask someone next time you come to the surgery or email ann.walker3@nhs.net to find out - thank you

Telephone Appointments

Are available for minor queries or reviews if you do not need to be physically examined.

Appointments are available at reception for members of the nursing team. A wide range of services are offered as you will see from the list below.
