We encourage anyone who can to register online  - it is quicker and can be done at your convenience 24 hours a day. Please allow three working days for us to process your registration application (after submitting your online registration - with the required documentation) then book an appointment if you require medication. If you need anything sooner please call the surgery and speak to a member of reception. 

N.B Please be aware that if you are on highly addictive or controlled medications (i.e. tramadol, diazepam, temazepam etc) that we are unable to prescribe these medications until we have your old medical records, so please liaise with the reception to ensure we have these before booking an appointment. Please also note that we do not prescibe out of accordance with national and local medicines management guidelines.

Your Named GP

The surgery provides all patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.

We need to divide our patients evenly between all of our doctors, so they can manage their workload. To do do this fairly and impartially, we have selected patients by surname to match to a doctor.

We know that some patients will wish their named GP to be a particular doctor. Where a patient expresses a preference as to which doctor they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request, but we would like to reassure patients that this system does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do. Your named GP will not be available at all times.

You do not need to take any further action and will be informed of your named GP in due course. In the meantime, if you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
