Welcome to the patient section of the site. The aim of the section is to provide patients with an area of the site that gives basic information and also allows you to give us some feedback.
The Practice's Patient Reference Group (PRG) will also be using the site to post up agendas and minutes and gain feedback for future meetings. The group would like to welcome everyone to come along.
You can also look at registering for the practice through the New Patient Registration page.

Non-NHS Medicals and Private Fees
Medical examinations for HGV, PSV, Insurance and Employment etc. can be arranged by appointment. These, and claim forms for holiday cancellation, medical insurance etc., are not part of your doctor's NHS duties and therefore a fee in the range recommended by the BMA is payable, details of which are available at reception or link to a copy of the fee poster.
For absence from work through sickness, self certification is currently valid for the first week. The certificate (form SC1) is available from your employer or the post office. If a private certificate is required to cover this absence from work, a fee is charged. After the first week certificates are obtained as part of a consultation with your doctor. If you are under the care of a hospital doctor you may ask them to issue your certificate for an inpatient stay or an outpatient appointment.
We will not provide any information about you to others without your permission. However if we had to remove a patient for aggressive or violent behaviour we would share this information with other health and welfare agencies - but only as much as it was necessary to protect other staff.
