CCG Closure Wednesday 11th September
The Surgery will be closed from 12.00 for training purposes. There will be no medical staff available. Please call 111 for medical advice and 999 for any medical emergencies.
Please note the doors will be locked from 12.00, please make alternative arrangements to collect prescriptions before we close on that day.
Please note we are unable to accept phone requests for prescriptions.
During the summer months the surgery may be short staffed and exceptionally busy due to staff holidays, sickness and limited locum cover. If possible please only book GP appointments during August and early September for immediately necessary situations, when you need to be seen urgently and cannot wait for a couple of weeks.

All patients are required to visit the Surgery to complete the registration process and must be residing within our practice area. Please see the above tab for the Practice Area. To ensure that we continue to provide the highest and safest levels of care to the Patients within the locality we are only able to register new patients that are living within our published Patient Registration Boundary. We are unable to make any exceptions to this policy.
The receptionist will provide you with a registration pack and take you through the registration procedure. Using the equipment provided you will need to take your blood pressure, measure your height and weight, complete the forms, retake your blood pressure, then return the completed pack to the receptionist for processing. Any regular medication, including contraception will need to be recorded on the form.
The practice would prefer it if all new patients applying to register with us provide evidence of their residency in our practice area. Patients already residing in the UK are asked to provide current proof of address e.g. a copy of a utility bill, a solicitor's letter or rent book, dated within the last three months as this information will help us to ensure accuracy of recording personal details.
New patients arriving from overseas are requested to provide similar proof of residency plus their passport and any relevant visas.
If you have been issued with an NHS medical card you will also need to bring this with you when registering. If you have been registered previously with a doctor in the UK, you will need to know their name and address to complete your registration.
Please ensure that you book a routine appointment with a doctor to obtain your first prescription from the surgery.
We will not refuse an application for registration on the basis of the applicant's race, gender, age, sexual orientation, social class, religion, appearance, disability or medical condition. We will however refuse applications made by those living outside our practice area.
The Royal College of General Practitioners has produced a useful guide for patients about the services on offer at GP Surgeries and how to access them. You can download the guide below.
A Patient Guide to GP Services
Please note you are only within the practice area if you live within the inside side of the roads marked. If you live on the opposite side of of the marked roads you are not within the practice area.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups.

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
