Zero Tolerance Policy - A heartfelt plea to all of our patients.

Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in unacceptable behaviour from our patients which will ultimately result in driving staff away from the practice and will only make the services we provide harder to deliver. 

All of our staff are doing their very best in difficult circumstances and have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic.

To the majority of our patients who continue to be understanding and supportive, we thank you for your kindness and appreciate your tolerance. Demand for appointments has become significantly greater than capacity, and whichever way we manage our appointments, there is simply not enough to be able to see everyone when they want it.

We appreciate your frustrations at not being able to get through on the phone and having to wait longer for an appointment, or not being able to be seen on the day that you want. We are all on the same side and all want to ensure high quality care is delivered to our patients when needed.

"Everyone has the right to be safe at work, and we want to reiterate in the strongest possible terms that violence and aggression towards our staff will not tolerated. Staff facing abuse will always have the surgery's full support". 

Thank you for your support and understanding.

August Bank holiday 2022 - We will be closed on Monday 29th August and re-open on Tuesday 30th August. Further details can be found under Opening Times - Bank Holidays 2022.

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

NHS Counter Fraud

NHS Counter Fraud and Security Management Services aim to reduce the number of people who claim NHS Care fraudulently. Please ensure you are entitled to NHS funded healthcare before registering to avoid any problems at a latter stage.
