We welcome Dr Gawens who joined us at the beginning of January. Dr Gawens will be working Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Every patient registered at the surgery has an allocated GP which is Dr McAnsh. He is responsible for your overall care but you can see whichever GP you prefer.
If you are over 65 years and would like a pneumococcal vaccine please contact the surgery.
You can now book an early morning appointment on Thursdays from 7.30am. Appointments are available with a doctor, nurse or health care assistant.
The number of patients missing appointments continues to be a problem – in the past six months 414 patients failed to attend their appointments wasting a staggering 85 hours of NHS time. This adds to patient waiting times and causes a serious drain on the practice’s resources. If you cannot keep an appointment please cancel it so that another person can be seen – this is only common courtesy and would help reduce waiting times.
Our clinical system is able to send you an automated text reminder of your appointment which we hope will cut down on missed appointments; please help us by giving us your mobile number.
You can now access your summary care record, order repeat prescriptions or book an appointment with a doctor on line - please call in at the surgery to register for this service with some form of identification. You will be given a user name and password and instructions. Once registered you can also access the system via the buttons on this website. FRom 31st March 2016 you can access more of your clinical record, i.e. all coded information.
We use GP2GP transfer which enables patients' electronic health records to be transferred directly and securely between GP practices. It improves patient care as GPs will usually have quicker access to your records when you register as a new patient.
We provide daily updates to the SCR (Summary Care Record) so that your medical records are kept up to date.
If you live out of town and are housebound you can telephone your repeat prescription order between 12 and 6pm - please have the names of your medication to hand when you phone.
In addition to everything you need to know about the health centre on this website you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu below.
We have set up a 'Patient Participation Group' - please see the 'Patient Group' link below for further information or call in at the Surgery if you are interested in joining.
