Important Information for patients
WE HAVE INTRODUCED A TELEPHONE ANSWERLINE FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS - PLEASE SEE FURTHER INFORMATION SECTION ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE
1. REPEAT PRESCRIPTION ANSWERLINE

IF THE DOCTOR DOES REQUIRE TO SEE YOU FACE TO FACE WE WILL CONTACT YOU IN ORDER TO DO A VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT THROUGH YOUR SMARTPHONE OR PC/LAPTOP/IPAD, OR THE DOCTOR WILL ARRANGE A FACE TO FACE IF THIS IS CLINICALLY INDICATED.
WE WILL CONTACT YOU BY MOBILE IF YOU ARE ABLE TO RECEIVE VIDEO CALLS WITH A LINK TO ENTER THE VIRTUAL WAITING AREA WHERE THE DOCTOR WILL SEE YOU. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A SMARTPHONE, PLEASE CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINK FROM YOUR PC/LAPTOP/IPAD TO CONNECT TO THE VIRTUAL WAITING AREA

Hepatitis C Checks
We can now offer Hepatitis C checks at the surgery through a simple blood test. The following patients are eligible for testing:
HAD A BLOOD TRANSFUSION BEFORE 1991
HAVE EVER INJECTED/SNORTED/SMOKED DRUGS - One injection is enough - many patients who injected years ago will not know they are infected
WERE BORN OUTSIDE THE UK OR HAVE HAD MEDICAL OR DENTAL TREATMENT ABROAD - In particular from India/Pakistan/Africa or Eastern Europe
HAD A TATTOO OR BODY PIERCING IN UNLICENSED PREMISES
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Your comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
