New NHS App!!
If you are a patient at our practice, you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.
You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.
If you already use SystmOnline, you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well.

We are sad to announce that our Practice Nurse Karen has now retired. She has been a valued member of the team for the past few years and will be greatly missed. We wish you all the bet for the future Karen!
MJOG Text Messaging Service
We are running a new text messaging service (MJOG). This service enables you to cancel your appointment by replying ‘CANCEL’. You can also respond to practice questions and can receive reminders for your annual reviews.

We now have a staff notice board in our reception area to ease patient access and to allow patients to become familiar with the team.
Closure of Prescription Line from 29th April 2019
You can now order your prescription in one of the following ways:
On the Internet – NHS App / SystmOnline is the safest way to order your repeat medication. This service provides a patient with a list of their repeat medication and a request can be sent direct to our clinical system. We would be happy to demonstrate the online system if required. If you would like to use this system, you would need to fill in a request form, and provide photographic evidence in person (currently we can only accept a passport or photographic driving licence). If you are unable to provide a passport of driving licence, a GP may be able to vouch for you.
In person - using the tear off slip on the right hand side of the prescription indicating clearly which items are required, and posting it in the prescription box at in the waiting area.
By post - using the tear of slip on the right hand side of the prescription indicating clearly which items are required, and posting it to the surgery.
Via your pharmacy - many pharmacies offer a service whereby patients can order their repeat medication via the pharmacy. Each pharmacy in the area offers a range of methods for ordering repeat medication, and we believe that most pharmacies will currently accept a request over the telephone. You may wish to discuss this with your usual pharmacy.
