New Texting service "AccuRx"

The surgery has introduced a new text message service to inform you of results and other information relating to your healthcare.   Receiving this information by text frees up our phone lines and staff time and helps us communicate with our patients more proactively.  Please make sure that we hold the correct mobile number for you.

Test results

Casualty Attendance

Most Emergency problems can be very adequately managed by our practice and there should seldom be a need to go to A&E.  As you will see we have increased the number of hours that we are open and we offer two late night surgeries to help improve access.  You will also see that we have now developed a website that is packed full of useful health information that you may find useful when you are suffering from an illness. 

We always have appointments on the day available and we also discuss problems on the telephone if that is your preferred choice of consultation.

Out of Hours

If you are unwell in the evening, overnight, on a bank holiday or at the weekend and you are unable to wait to see your GP, please call the NHS Care Service on 111. Calls to 111 are free from landlines and mobiles.

Electronic Prescription Service

 

A new way to get your medicines and appliances

The NHS is introducing the Electronic Prescription Service. This could make collecting prescriptions easier and more convenient for you.

This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. This could save you a trip to your GP practice just to collect a prescription form - particularly if you have regular prescriptions.

Different GP practices, pharmacies and dispensing appliance contractors will start using the service at different times. Ask a member of staff for more information or visit:  www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients
