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.

patient surveyThe Practice Patient Forum was established in 2008.

Members of the group meet at the practice every 3 months, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, to discuss issues relating to the Practice and to provide feedback on the services we are providing for our patients.

We want to ensure as many of our patients as possible have 'a voice'; therefore if you are a registered patient who is interested in sharing your views and experiences then please contact Mandy Lawrence, Practice Manager for further information about joining our Patient Forum.

Virtual patient representation group

We have also set up a virtual patient representation group so that you can have your say. We will ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email and keep our surveys succinct so it shouldn’t take too much of your time.

We aim to gather around a hundred patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from non-British ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields.
