We are always looking for more patients to join our Patient Forum Group. For further information please contact Mandy Lawrence, Practice Manager, or click on "Further Information Patient Group" on the home page.
Named Accountable GP
The NHS standard contract for 2015/16 requires that all patients, including children, are allocated a named, accountable GP. The named, accountable GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the practice provides for you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.
If you would like to know who your named GP is please contact reception.
Change of Telephone Number
It is very important that you let us know if you change your telephone number.
You can do this by completing:
* the on line change of details form at the foot of this page
* the change of details form available from reception
Alternatively you can include the details on your repeat prescription request.
