Catchment Area

For medical help outside of normal hours ring 111.

 

Consultations with our practice team are by appointment only. We try to ensure that all patients are offered a consultation within 48 hours. If you wish to see a particular GP or Nurse then you may have to wait longer. You can make an appointment by phone, by visiting the practice or online.

 

Online Access

To use our online appointments and prescriptions service you need to register directly with Practice. The receptionist will give you an “Access Pin” document which will have your registration details on such as your access pin and ID numbers. Set up is easy and will allow you 24/7 access to book and cancel appointments and order your prescription online. When you have received your registration document click here to access the online service.  Please read the terms of use and the information about your privacy which apply.

 

How to get healthcare advice and assistance when the practice is closed

Out-of-hours services are available when the practice is closed, during the hours of 6.30 pm – 8.00 am.

 

What to do when the GP practice is closed:

  • If you need medical help fast but it’s not an emergency call 111
  • If it’s a life-threatening emergency call 999

 

NHS 111 is the number to call when you need medical help fast but it’s not a life-threatening emergency.

Calls to 111 are FREE from landlines and mobiles

NHS 111 is available 24/7, every day of the year

 

When to call 111

You should call 111 when:

  • you think you need to go to A&E or to another NHS urgent care service
  • your GP surgery is closed and you need healthcare advice
  • you don’t know who to call for medical help.

 

When to call 999

Call 999 for life threatening emergencies such as:

  • Major accident or trauma
  • Severe breathlessness
  • Severe bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Severe chest pain

 

During normal practice opening hours, the practice remains your first point of contact for all routine requests.

Order a repeat prescription

If you need regular medication on prescription, your doctor will usually organise a repeat prescription for you.

This can then be ordered at set intervals without seeing the doctor in person.  If you are a new patient to the practice, we will need to see you in person first to arrange this service.

Repeat prescriptions are normally issued on a monthly basis and can be ordered between 11.00am and 1.00pm weekdays. Please telephone our main surgery line. Alternatively, you make your request in person or by post. Please note that we do need 48 hours to process this for you. The prescription is passed to your usual GP for checking and signing.  The GP may ask you to make a routine appointment for review from time to time, and may occasionally not issue the prescription until this has occurred. Once completed, the prescriptions may be collected from our reception desk. Alternatively, if you supply a Stamped Addressed Envelope, we can post them back to you. Several local pharmacies also provide a collection service. Ask at reception for further details.

Ordering a prescription online

To order a repeat prescription via the online service, please use the link to the left ‘Online Appointments and Prescriptions’.  You will need your log in and password to access this service.
