Named GP for all patients
From April 2015, all practices are required under their contract to allocate a 'named GP' to each of their patients. The 'named GP' will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides for our patients.
This does not mean that you will only see your named GP and your care will be provided by the most appropriate member of the clinical team.
Having a 'named GP' will not prevent you from seeing any other doctor or nurse of your choice. You will not need to take any further action. If you have any queries regarding your 'named GP', please ask when you next visit the practice.
If you have a preference for which GP you would like to have as your 'named GP', the practice will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your request.
Youthhealthtalk enables young people, their family and friends, and professionals such as doctors and teachers to understand young people's experiences of health, illness and life in general. The website feature real-life accounts of issues such as effect on work and education, social life and relationships, consulting health professionals and treatment.

We have an advisor at the surgery every Thursday to help you to stop smoking and ensure that you receive full support.
Our nurse practitioner and practice nurse's regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions. If you have suffered with a Stroke / TIA you will be automatically called to a clinic.

National Diabetes Audit 2018/19
The Practice is taking part in this national audit throughout 2018 & 2019, results gathered from patient records will be made available to the practice to show how we manage those with or those who potentially may develop Diabetes. The audit will be carried out by NHS Digital and initially they will gather information based on NHS numbers and dates of birth and once accessed these details will be removed so all information is anonymised, no patient names or personal details will be accessible during this process. If you would like further information on this audit please collect a leaflet from the practice or look at the National Diabetes webpage. If you do not wish to take part in the audit please let the practice know.
Asthma & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Our practice nurses regularly monitor patients and alter their treatments to suit individual needs, therefore, helping to reduce the number of attacks and hospital admissions. Emergency facilities are held within the buildings to deal with asthma situations promptly, rather than referring to hospital (unless absolutely necessary)
If you have blood pressure problems, we have a machine in the reception area, so you can monitor your levels and update us with your readings.
These are carried out by the practice nurse or doctor. There is a recall system in operation, however, if you are not called when you think appropriate, please contact the surgery.
Back Pain Clinic
We hold a back pain clinic every other Thursday evening consisting of exercise and stretching classes. If you feel you may benefit from these sessions please speak to your doctor for booking.
All results are received from the hospital by internal mail twice a day. They are then checked by the doctors. We would appreciate it if you could telephone for test results between 12.30pm and 3pm when the reception staff are less busy.
Note that the practice has a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection and we will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice.
It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment to discuss them with your doctor if your are advised to do so.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
