PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS:  Please note that it takes 3 working days to process repeat medication due to the number of requests we receive. In the interest of patient safety the clinical risk associated with accepting repeat prescription requests over the telephone needs to be limited. The easiest and safest way for you to order your medication is online. Please ask a member of staff about SystmOnline.


DISPENSARY QUEUES: Our peak period in Dispensary for collection of medication is on Friday afternoons. Please collect earlier in the day or collect on another day wherever possible.

Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015 onwards Practices are required, under the GMS contract, to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children.

This does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the practice. Patients can and should feel free to choose to see any GP in the Practice. However seeing your usual GP will maintain continuity of care.

We have now allocated all patients to a named GP. New patients registering from 1st April 2015 onwards will be informed of their named GP within 21 days of registration. Patients can check at any time who their named GP is by asking a member of staff.

If you were registered with us before 1st April 2015 and were aged over 75 or took part in the Unplanned Emergency Admissions service provision you will have already been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing – this named GP will remain the same and will not change. If you are aged 75 or over, have not had a consultation in the last 12 months and would like a health check please book an appointment with the healthcare assistant.

Should you express a wish to change your named GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes wherever possible.  Please contact reception to request the change.
