If you do have an appointment, please continue to wear a face covering and maintain safe social distancing when attending the surgery. On arrival please use the self check in machine and take a seat.

We have a limited number of face to face appointments to book in advance. These are to be used by patients that need to be seen by the GP. We are still booking the majority of our GP consultations by phone and you will then be invited for a face to face appointment if needed.

Face to face nurse appointments can be booked a week in advance.

We are following the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings which will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.

General Practice Data for Planning and Research (GPDPR) Data Extraction

Patient data from GP medical records kept by GP practices in England is used to improve health, care and services through planning and research, helping to find better treatments and improve patient care. The NHS is introducing an improved way to share this information – called the General Practice Data for Planning and Research data collection. The first extraction is due 1st September 2021.

NHS Digital will collect, analyse, publish and share this patient data to improve health and care services. This includes:

  • Planning and commissioning health and care services
  • Developing a health and social care policy
  • Public health monitoring and interventions (including the coronavirus pandemic)
  • Research
