New Appointment System from March 2015
We have introduced a new 'GP Pool' for patient contact in the mornings.
How does it work ?
You ring up from 8am to get a booking list slot for that morning to see a GP , this can be for any problem routine or more urgent or ongoing . If you would like a particular GP we will do our best to accomodate that . We will give you a window of time for your arrival . This will be to minimise your wait and keep the waiting room flowing and carpark manageable . Please come during the time frame given to you . This is NOT an appointment time . When you arrive you will be added to the the Pool and it is likely you will have a wait . The receptionist will keep you advised of waiting times. It is anywhere from 30- 60 mininutes . If you have young children please bring something that will occupy them for the wait . We are curently undertaking a survey on the new system We had to introduce it to help to cope with the demand. We do think a same day appointment is the best that can be given ,even if that entails a wait . Booking ahead in the afternoons is still available .

Sharing Patient Information
NHS Summary Care Record
A Summary Care Record will give Healthcare Staff important information about medicines you are taking, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions you have had to medicines. It will also include your name, date of birth and unique NHS number.
Giving Healthcare Staff access to this information can prevent mistakes being made when caring for you in an emergency or when your GP Practice is closed.
The Surgery plans to go 'live' on Summary Care uploads in February 2015. If you wish to opt out you need to click the link onthe right handside (5) to see the download link for the opt out form and return this to the practice as soon as possible
