Click the link in blue above for more details


We are pleased to announce that we are now able to send

appointment reminders by text message.

We would like to ask patients to make sure

we have your current mobile number.


Many patients’ text reminders fail because we do not have the correct mobile number for them


Please note it is possible to text back to cancel your appointment if you are unable to attend which releases appointments for others  


If you do not want to receive text messages you can opt out of them  

Please let a receptionist know if you wish to opt out


In addition to the new text reminder service - patients will be able to download an app which will give them access to appointment booking

and repeat prescription requests

(this will be available to mobile phones running Android 5 or iPhone iOS9)


News item above updated 06/06/17



A reminder to patients that all patients have been allocated a named accountable GP.


Many patients have been informed of their named GP during contact with the practice, those who have not yet been officially informed, please ask when you are next in the practice.


Please note that patients may book appointments with any GP subject to their availability and are not limited to their allocated one. Much of the role of the allocated named GP is to ensure incoming reports, prescription requests and documents relating to the patients on their list, are dealt with promptly and that there is clear accountability for doing this important role.
