Please see links below that may help you decide if you need to book an appointment

To update you (16th March 2020)-we are offering  telephone consultations  in preference to face to face appointments. We are also developing the ability to do video consultations. Our receptionists will be asking about cough or fever. If you feel you need to be assessed face to face a clinician will speak to you before making the appointment. These measures are for the protection of our patients and staff. We are continuing routine bloods tests for medication monitoring for now but will keep this under review. Thank you for your understanding - our staff are working hard to adapt our service to meet our patient’s needs during the current dynamic situation. We wanted to let all our patients know that as from this morning- the 11th March we will be calling all patients who request a same day appointment. This is to reduce the risk of exposure to Coronavirus to our patients and staff. We are also moving to telephone consultations where at all possible for routine appointments. Messages will be going out to all patients with a booked appointment to offer to convert this to a phone consultation. Please note that due to the way the system is currently configured you will still get a reminder text. We will try to change this moving forward.
Please do not ‘walk in’ requesting an appointment and make sure only well people collect regular medications. Thank you for helping us maintain the best service we can under the current circumstances.

Training Practice

The practice is approved for training of general practitioners. Fully qualified doctors spend up to a year with us to complete their training. By the time they come to us they have already spent several years in hospital medicine.

In our practice, we accomodate the following levels of Doctors in Training:

  • F2: Fully qualified doctor with at least one year experience of working in hospital.
  • ST1: Fully qualified doctor in their first year of GP training.
  • ST3: Fully qualified doctor in their final year of GP training.

Occasionally you may be asked if you are willing to have your consultation videotaped. This is used to help doctors to assess and improve their consultation skills and their ability to talk to patients. No intimate examinations will be recorded and the camera will be turned off immediately if you are unhappy at any stage.

If you agree to the recording of your consultation you will be asked to sign a consent form before and after you have seen the doctor. The videotape is subject to the same degree of confidentiality as patient records. The tape will be used for teaching consultation techniques and for examining training doctors in communications skills. If the tape is to be viewed by other doctors outside the practice the viewers will be asked to give a written undertaking to maintain confidentiality.
