Online appointments - ARE ON THE INCREASE

Patients registered for Online Patient Access will shortly be able to book some of the Open Access slots on line.  These appointments will be under the session holder Mr Open Access, however when you present you can ask if it is possible to be seen by a specific doctor. Doctors normally limit the number of patients who request to be seen by them specifically to 5 per Open Access session however this is not a hard and fast ruling if it is felt you need to see a particular doctor for continuity of care or about an ongoing concern you may have.
 
 

IMPORTANT ADVANCE WARNING

Patients who are eligible will have received letters inviting them to attend for their annual "flu" vaccination.  As last year was so successful the same format will apply this year.  The second session will be held in the Surgery waiting room (Pudding Pie Lane) on Saturday 1st November between 8.30-12.30.  NO NEED to ring for an appointment just turn up. To help keep waiting to a minimum please wear loose fitting clothes (particularly have easy access to your arms).  Car parking is slightly limited so if you can share a car so much the better.

We look forward to seeing you if you have not already been vaccinated this year.

If you are housebound and thus unable to make it to the Surgery please let one of our reception team know.

Parents of those eligible under the age of 18 years will shortly receive letters inviting them to attend a special afternoon session on Thursday 23 October 2.30 to 6pm  As with the Saturday session there is NO NEED to ring for an appointment merely attend the surgery between these times. These vaccinations will take place in the nurses area.

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.
