Thank you for your co-operation.
Thanks to everyone who recently completed one of our Friends and Family questionnaires either from this website or whilst at the surgery. We have been overwhelmed by the many positive comments - thank you. There have also been observations about how we could perhaps give consideration to changes - these will be looked into further. We hope that you will continue to use this facility to help us know what we do right and what we need to look into more carefully. Thank you all.
It is important to note that this service is only available to patients aged 16years and over and due to confidentiality considerations we have needed to change our policy with regards parents / guardians having access to youngsters records on their behalf. However with respect to prescriptions exceptions can be made in some extreme circumstances - if you feel this is the case please speak to the senior dispenser Sandra Plumley. Many thanks.
If you have received an invitation to have a flu vaccination but have been unable to attend one of our Saturday sessions don't worry - please telephone the surgery and ask the receptionist for details of our catch up session.
Remember our doctors all recommend that eligible patients, who will have received an invitation to attend for vaccination, should do so before the winter weather sets in.
If you are housebound and thus unable to make it to the Surgery please let one of our reception team know.

Repeat Prescriptions - Online Requests - the simple method for those of you who have access to the internet
If you are visiting the Practice please ask the receptionist/dispenser to print off your EMIS Access details, by entering these via the PatientAccess tab on this page you will asked some security questions and will then be given your own ID number which together with your password you can use for ordering repeat medicatons and booking appointments to see the doctor. Please allow 24 hours for your initial registration to become live.
If you experience difficulties with this, members of the reception or dispensing staff will be happy to help you.
Please note we have phased out our email facility to order prescriptions in favour of the EMIS Access method which is far more secure.
Remember you can also request your Repeat Prescription by Fax to: 01934 854751 or even better, simply hand back the counterfoil, with repeat items ticked, to the dispenser as you collect your prescription - it will then be ready for collection in a month's time - what could be easier!
Please note that we cannot accept verbal requests by phone.
We have said a very sad farewell to Dr Natasha Ward who worked as a salaried GP with the Practice for a short time. Dr Ward has left us to join a Practice nearer her home. We wish her all the very best.
