1 Appointment 1 Problem 1 Patient: 

We politely ask our patients to only discuss one problem per appointment, for the following reasons:

  • This helps ensure clinics run to schedule and other patients aren’t inconvenienced.
  • We don’t want our doctors to rush through each problem as a serious illness might get missed.
  • Too many problems can distract the doctor on dealing with your main problem.

If you need an additional appointment to discuss further problems, our reception will be happy to help.

Thank You

Non NHS Work: 

If you require a private letter to be written on your behalf which does not fall within normal NHS guidelines please download the attached form, complete and return to the surgery with the specified fee. 

Patient Request Form

Repeat Prescriptions:

Please note that repeat prescriptions take a full 48 hours (2 whole working days) to prepare.    Please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you hand your request into the surgery on time to avoid running out of your medication.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT:

PEAK TIME TELEPHONE CALLS:
