If you are late for your appointment ...
Please note that our clinics are usually fully booked in advance and if you are more than ten minutes late we may have to cancel your appointment in order to make sure that other patients are seen promptly. If something arises that is going to make you late, please try and let us know, and we may be able to make arrangements to accommodate you.
Some patients are consistently late for their appointments and that is not fair on those patients who arrive on time.
Our online service, SystmOnline, provides you with the ability to order repeat medication and book telephone calls. Please contact Reception if you wish to sign up for these services. You can also view a summary of your health record (on request). From 1st April you will also be able to view a more detailed record (on request). For record access you will need to attend the surgery in person, bringing with you some photographic ID, and complete a registration form while you are here.

Named Accountable GP
All registered patients at our practice have now been allocated a Named Accountable GP, who is responsible for the overall care of the patient. New patients joining the surgery will be advised of their Accountable GP at the point of registration. If you do not know who your named GP is, please ask a member of our reception team. You will still be able to see any GP of your choice.
If you have any questions, or wish to know who your named GP is, please contact the surgery. If you have a preference as to which GP is your named GP, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
