NEWSFLASH! ONLINE FACILITIES
As from the 9th March 2016 you will be able to request viewing of your detailed coded record. As a result of the new guidelines only patients 18 or over will now have access to use online services. Proxy access will no longer be available at this practice from 9th March 2016 and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
TELEPHONING THE PRACTICE
As of Mid September 2015 we are removing some of the options when you telephone the surgery. To make it easier we only have 2 options.
Option1- Reception only who will deal with your call or pass you to the most appropriate person
Option 2- Queries- only available between 10.30am and 1.30pm Monday to Friday for all test results and queries you may have.
We hope this makes life easier when trying to contact the surgery- But advise you that between 8.30am and 10am it is alot busier and may take longer to process your call. Thank you

CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT PLEASE!!
Please note we are having a lot of patients not attending their booked appointments (see figures below) PLEASE could you CANCEL your appointment if you no longer need it to help others who do! Please note that we are now sending text messages to those patients who do not arrive for their appointment in the hope it will reduce the numbers not attending but so far it does not seem to be making any difference.
