Our GP Appointments
We are no longer making face to face routine GP appts – all appts from Tuesday 17th will go via triage – please phone surgery and do not attend unless requested to do so.
Can you please call the surgery if you do not have a nominated pharmacy. This will enable us to send your prescriptions electronically.
The practice regrets that it cannot call back any patients who are outside of the UK, and for legal reasons we are not in a position to deal with any clinical issues involving patients who are abroad. If you are on holiday, and require medical advice, you need to see a local doctor and use your holiday insurance appropriately.
If you're going on holiday or for a business trip, apply for a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which may give you access to reduced cost medical treatment in Europe.
For more general information about healthcare abroad, go to the NHS Choices website (WWW.nhs.uk) and search for 'health care abroad'
Please complete a survey that you will receive 7 days after the eConsultation has been completed
Public Engagement 'Online Consultation'
GP online services allows you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:
- book or cancel appointments online
- renew or order repeat prescriptions online
- view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results
You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at www.nhs.uk/gponlineservices
