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 for booking appointments, ordering prescriptions, changing their address and telephone numbers. they can also view their medical records and private messaging us.

If your not one of them bring some I.D. into the surgery and sign up now !!!!

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 to find out - thank you

Telephone Appointments

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

Introduction to the NHS Constitution

The NHS belongs to the people.

It is there to improve our health and wellbeing, supporting us to keep mentally and physically well, to get better when we are ill and, when we cannot fully recover, to stay as well as we can to the end of our lives. It works at the limits of science – bringing the highest levels of human knowledge and skill to save lives and improve health. It touches our lives at times of basic human need,when care and compassion are what matter most.

The NHS is founded on a common set of principles and values that bind together the communities and people it serves – patients and public – and the staff who work for it.

Zero Tolerance Policy

We aim to treat our patients courteously at all times and expect our patients to treat our staff in a similar way. Threatening, violent or abusive behaviour towards any of our staff or patients will not be tolerated. If a patient is violent or abusive, we may take action to have them excluded from our list of patients.
