REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS HAS CHANGED
From 1st September repeat prescriptions has changed. You will no longer be able to order your prescriptions over the phone. This change is to try and reduce prescription errors and provide patients with a more efficient service.
The prescriptions line will be open 9am -11am for complex medication queries. From this date you will need to request your medication in reception, online with Patient access or via your pharmacy.
Please be aware if you order your prescription online you will need to log back in the following day to check your request has been approved.
To register for online access please come to the surgery with ID.
Patient access has now changed, allowing users to have PROXY access for friends and relatives. More information on this service is available here.
For patients under 16 parents/guardians will need to complete a consent form and show ID. If you are between 11 and 16 and want your own account please inform reception.
The only website the Privacy Notice (below) applies to is the Surgery’s website. If you use a link to any other website from the Surgery’s website then you will need to read their respective privacy notice. We take no responsibility (legal or otherwise) for the content of other websites.
The new way to be seen.
From the 1st November 2017, you may have noticed a change when you ask for an appointment. You may now speak to a 'Healthcare Navigator' who is trained to offer you an appointment with the most appropriate person depending on your need and urgency.
They may ask you a couple of questions in order to navigate you to the person best suited to help you. The Healthcare Navigator is not being nosey, nor will they make any clinical decisions, they have been trained to help you get the most appropriate care, from the most appropriate person.
Healthcare Navigators, like all members of the team, are bound by the same confidentiality rules.
Thank you for your support.

Patient Access overview
We are now making more use of email and texts to contact patients rather than just letters by post. It is therefore vital that patients ensure they keep us up-to-date if they change their mobile number or email address.
Keeping your contact details up-to-date is now easier than ever. Simply use the "Your Contact Details" button at the bottom of this page, and complete the form.
Alternatively, you can also let us know using Patient Access (online services) by clicking "Update your details".
We will only use your details to contact you about matters directly relating to your care or to inform you of new services aimed at improving the healthcare you receive from us. No confidential information is ever sent via text or email.
