Patient On Line Access

Gives you the option to make appointments and order repeat prescriptions and is

proving very popular. This has now been extended to viewing your summary care

record from your computer, table, or smartphone instead of ringing or visiting the

surgery. A summary record includes : medication, adverse reactions and allergies

During 2015/16 access to your electronic medical record will be widened to enable

you to view your full electronic record by 31 March 2016 should you choose to.

Access to online services demands a consistent and robust approach to ensure patient

confidentiality whilst providing you with secure access to your personal data.

Practices will, therefore, be required to verify your identity or individually vouch for

patients requiring on line access.

it is important that you, understand that you will be responsible for protecting the

information about you that you will see.

Leaflets and further information will be available on the website and in surgery very

In common with other surgeries, we are receiving an increase in volume of prescription requests.  Also, GPs are having to undertake more stringent safety checks when issuing repeat prescriptions.  It is therefore with regret that with immediate effect we require 48 working hours notice (2 days excluding weekends) from receipt of a prescription request to collection by the patient.

We recognise this will be inconvenient for some of you, but unfortunately we have no alternative.

This will also bring us in line with other surgeries as the national standard is 72 hours .

Please note, if you send a prescription request to  you will now receive an automatic reply via email which lets you know your email has been received.

Meningitis ACWY immunisations


Were you born between 1st September 1996 and 31st August 1997 or are you aged under 25 years and are off to university or further education for the 1st time?


If so, you are advised to have a Meningitis ACWY immunisation at the surgery BEFORE  you go away.


You are at greatest risk of catching this serious infection in the 1st few weeks at Uni. Therefore it is essential to make an appointment in the next few weeks before you go away.


We are being supplied with limited quantities of this vaccine but should have sufficient supplies to immunise all eligible patients in the next few weeks.


We have sent letters to those of you who are in the age group above inviting you in, but we are unable to identify those who are off to Uni so we need you to contact the surgery for an appointment.


Please note that other teenagers will be offered this vaccination through the school nursing services.
