Online Booking

6th March 2020

We have been advised by NHS England to temporarily suspend the online booking of appointments.

This is to allow our care navigators to identify any patients who may have, or be at risk of Coronavirus and direct them to the 111 service.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but we hope you understand this measure must be taken to protect our patients and staff.

We will reinstate online booking as soon as possible.

Book your appointment online

We offer a wide range of appointments with clinicians which are available to book online including (but not limited to) GP Consultations, Telephone Consultations, Blood Tests, Blood Pressure Checks, Ear Syringing, Health Checks, Diabetic Foot Screening, Depo Provera Injections, B12 Injections, Prostap Injections, Depixol Injections and Cervical Screening.

We proactively promote and encourage our patients to be active partners in their care by allowing full access to prescriptions, appointments, nominated chemist options and record access.

If you would like to be set up for Patient Access, and have not already created an account, then please attend the Surgery with two forms of I.D. One to confirm your identity, and one to confirm your address. If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to contact reception on 01772 529350.
