Do you want to book an appointment or order a prescription when we're closed?
Or let us know about your change of address?
Patient Access is a new way of ordering prescriptions, booking routine appointments with the doctor.
It can also be used to let us know if you change your address or other contact details.
All you need to do is to come into the surgery reception with a form of identification and the receptionist will be able to register you and issue a PIN and password to use our online service. Once you've registered with the website you're away!
It may seem unnecessary to have identification when we probably know you well, but the system belongs to our clinical supplier and they have strict rules about its use.

In May we will start sending text reminders for booked appointments.
We will need your up-to-date mobile numbers, therefore, if you’ve changed your mobile recently, please inform us of the change of number.
We hope that this new facility will reduce the number of missed appointments we have as well as informing patients of health campaigns.
If you have any objections to being sent text reminders, please inform the reception so that your record can be amended.
We will ask for a brief outline of the problem for the doctor’s information, we also have a Nurse Practitioner in practice who is able to deal with minor problems.
