Extra Appointments

NHS England has released a small amount of money to support the winter pressures in general practice locally. This will provide on, on average, about 24 extra appointments on Mondays until the end of February (About a 3% increase during this period). These have to be book on the day appointments and will be released by reception in line with the other book on the day appointments.

All doctors will provide antenatal care during normal surgery hours. After the first appointment with a doctor, this care is shared with the the community midwife and a hospital specialist if required . The midwife’s clinic is held on a Tuesday morning, messages can be taken and passed onto the midwife between 9am and 12pm.  Appointments are made by the midwife.

docandcomputerNew Patients

A new patient's records may take some time to be transferred to us from their previous surgery. To help us collect as much information about you as we can, we ask you to complete a “New Patient Questionnaire” and attend a new patient healthcheck with the health care assistant. She will take your medical and family history, check your blood pressure and urine, offer appropriate lifestyle advice and refer you to the doctor if necessary.

Medical examinations for driving, insurance, pre-employment, sport and other purposes which are not part of our NHS commitment are undertaken and will be charged for.  The current rates can be provided in a leaflet from the reception desk or available here.

By appointment.  Advice is given regarding the various vaccinations or medications necessary for your holiday destination. Please complete a travel questionnaire 8 weeks in advance, fill in the questionnaire and return it to the surgery, call back a week later to check if you need any vaccinations. A charge will be made for certain immunisations and vaccinations which are not covered by the NHS. Anti-malarial medication will be prescribed on a private prescription. You can find out more about vaccinations on our travel page.

We are part of the Primary Care Research Network. From time to time, you may be invited to take part in a research study.  You are perfectly at liberty to decline without causing offence or having any effect on your future treatment.
