Noticeboard

Following the announcement by the JCVI on 29th November, that all adults over the age of 18 will be offered a Covid Booster jab 3 months after their second dose, we are waiting for more operational details so that we can plan how to vaccinate the local community as quickly and safely as possible. More details will be added to this website as soon as we have them. Please DO NOT phone the surgery to make enquiries, we will contact you when it is your turn. Thank you.

consultationTop Tips For Your Appointment

Booking Your Appointment




      • Try to call later in the day to book routine appointments to avoid the busy time first thing in the morning when people call for appointments that day.
      • An appointment is for one patient. Please book a separate appointment if your child, husband, wife etc. needs to be seen too - it is usually not possible for the doctor to "just squeeze them in"!
      • The Doctors have asked the Reception Team to ask a reason for your visit. This allows us to make sure you are seeing the person best able to help you. It also allows the doctor to prepare for your visit in advance.
      • If you would like a chaperone or translator to be present during your consultation, please mention this when booking so that one can be arranged.

Before Your Appointment

      • Write down your most important one or two queries
      • Make a note of your symptoms - when did they start? what makes them better or worse?
      • Ask a friend or family member to come with you if you like
      • If you think that you might need to be examined or are having a vaccination, wear clothes which are easy to remove so that you do not waste your appointment time getting undressed.
      • If you cannot make your appointment, please call us to cancel so we can give the appointment to another patient.
      • If you are concerned about forgetting your appointment, give us your mobile number and we will send you a text reminder



During Your Appointment

      • Don't be afraid to ask if you do not understand something - the doctor or nurse will be happy to explain it again.
      • If you don't understand any words, ask for them to be written down or explained.
      • Write things down or ask a family member or friend to make notes.
      • Check that you understand what should happen next and who to contact if there is a further problem.
      • If necessary, ask about Support Groups or where to get reliable further information




After Your Appointment

      • Make some notes about what was discussed and what is to happen next
      • Book any further tests or appointments and put them in your diary
