Important Patient Notice

For the foreseeable future we will be moving to primarily telephone or online modes of consultation, although we will still continue to see people who need to come in to surgery, and some clinics will still run in limited way.

If you have an appointment already booked, please do not come to the surgery. Instead, the doctor or nurse will call you to discuss your problem and see if they can help without coming into surgery.

Please keep your phone nearby around your allotted appointment time.

We are all grateful for your patience and understanding in this period of uncertainty, and wish to reassure you that we are here to help and care for you as normal.

Covid-19 is a viral infection which is spreading across the world. It is infectious and potentially fatal.

Information is changing on a regular basis. The latest current guidance can be found on:

Please note: If you have any communication needs and wish to access information in a different format please notify a member of Reception.


If you require urgent medical assistance that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please call 111 where you will be put through to the NHS 111 helpline who will be able to assist you further

NHS111 is a free to call, non-emergency, medical helpline operating in England.

The service is part of the country’s NHS telephone and triage and advisory services

 The Choose Well website is an excellent resource which includes details of services in the area, including local pharmacies and walk-in centres, and self-care information.  It provides a wealth of clear, clinically assured self-care information for patients, covering over 40 topics in 64 languages; each topic comes with a downloadable pdf leaflet to help you to self-care. 

 We are now providing an electronic prescribing service.  If you nominate a preferred local pharmacy we can send your prescriptions directly to them electronically.  The advantage of this service is that you will not have to collect the prescription from the surgery, simply collect the medication from your pharmacy.  If you are interested, please go to your preferred pharmacy and they can arrange.



 You may be entitled to an NHS Health Check please check with Reception.

This involves an appointment with the HCA who will record medical details, check height, weight, blood pressure and relevant blood tests.  She will then review your case following the results.


Why does the Doctor charge private fees for some things?

Most of the services your doctor provides for you are supplied under the National Health Service. There are, however, some letters, reports and other documents which are not covered by the Nation Health Service.

Any work for which no fee is payable under the NHS must be charged privately. Examples are:

•    Some holiday vaccinations
•    Taking copies from patients" notes
•    Routine consultations with visitors from abroad (emergencies are treated free)
•    Private sick notes
•    Medical examinations
•    Completion of private insurance claim forms
•    "To whom it may concern" letters
•    Freedom from infection certificates
•    GP signature

We get a tremendous amount of this kind of work every year, and we simply cannot afford to do it without being paid. Our fees are based on recommendations from the British Medical Association (current charges are displayed at reception and are outlined below).


Not all services at the practice are available under the NHS.
