NOW UP AND RUNNING AGAIN. BRING ID TO RECEPTION TO GET NEW LOGIN DETAILS
Two local practices have closed and since April this year we've taken on nearly 450 new patients. We are sorry that this means we are short of appointments at the moment but we are working with NHS England to make sure we can soon offer enough again. Please bear with us.
Remember: if it's urgent then you can speak to a doctor the same day.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS - CHANGE TO TURNAROUND TIMES
We are making a change to our repeat prescription turnaround time. This is to make sure our doctors have enough time to do all the necessary checks before issuing your prescription. We have consulted the practice Patient Participation Group & they support this change.
From Monday 4th November 2014
Requests made before 11am will be ready after 5pm on the next working day, so a request made before 11am on Monday will be ready to collect after 5pm on Tuesday.
Requests made after 11am will be ready after 5pm on the day after the next working day, so a request made after 11 am on Monday will be ready to collect after 5pm on Wednesday.
Our duty doctor will still be able to deal with urgent requests, on the day.
We hope you support this change and trust it will not inconvenience you

We are sorry but our doctors can no longer countersign passport applications.
The Identity and Passport Office have changed the rules about who can countersign. GPs can only countersign if they are a personal friend of the applicant.
See www.direct.gov.uk for more information.
Phlebotomy (bloods) Service
There is a walk-in service for blood tests between 8.30am - 11.30am Monday to Friday. Patients are seen in order of arrival. You can book an appointment for a fasting blood test or a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) if you doctor has requested these tests; these patients are seen out of order, at the time of their appointment.
Please wait for one week before telephoning for your test results. This allows time for the result to come back to the practice from the hospital, and for your doctor to check it. Please call between 10am and 4.30pm to request your results. (we are closed between 1pm - 2pm). A receptionist will ask one of our practice nurses to call you back on the same day. Make sure we have the correct telephone number for you.
