Newly Registered Patients
To register with the practice contact Reception who will provide you with the necessary forms and Practice Leaflet. In order that we can establish your current health all newly registered patients should make an appointment with the Practice Nurse for a new patient health check and with a clinician, if on current medication, as it normally takes a few weeks for your previous medical record to be forwarded to us.
You will be registered with the practice as a whole and will be assigned to the list of one of the partners. When making an appointment you may request a consultation with the Doctor of your choice.
We are always happy to see any relatives or friends staying with you if they need a Doctor or Nurse. They will need to fill out a short form for the information to be returned to their own Doctor. Please arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for completion of the necessary forms.
Access to the Surgery for Disabled Patients
The Surgery is fully equipped for disabled parking, access and toilet facilities. Please inform Reception if you are unable to manage the stairs, they will arrange for you to be seen downstairs.
The Practice is committed to creating a fully inclusive and accessible service. By making equality and diversity an integral part of the business, it will enable us to enhance the services we deliver and better meet the needs of our Patients and Staff.
We will treat people with dignity and respect, promote equal opportunities and eliminate all forms of discrimination regardless of (but not limited to) your race, nationality, religion or belief and family status.

People who call NHS 111 with an urgent health issue that is not an emergency, are prioritised and routed to the most appropriate care based upon the symptoms they report. The call-handler steers patients towards a range of care options from self-care through to Nurse Clinicians, GPs, Urgent Care Centres and Accident and Emergency Departments, whilst also having the capability to pass calls directly to the ambulance service in the event of an emergency.
NHS 111 is a free-to-use number which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 111 is an alternative to 999 which should be used for non-emergency health problems.
