We are aware that some patients are having issues with the myGP app.  This can be either a very slow connection or the inability to order repeat medication.  myGP are aware of this and are working to resolve the issue. You can, however, use Patient Access either via the app or on your PC.  Click here for details on how to register for Patient Access.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Please be aware that it is not a GP’s responsibility to issue school letters of absence for your children, regarding COVID-19 or other illness. Government guidance is that school attendance is mandatory unless your child is self-isolating, has symptoms of COVID-19 or is close to someone who has COVID-19.

Appointments Overviewcalendar

All surgeries are by appointment. The reception staff may ask the reason for your attendance at the practice when you book an appointment so your need can be dealt with in the most appropriate way.

All members of staff are strictly bound by the NHS code of confidentiality so you can discuss your needs with them in complete confidence.

Our practice nurses offer a wide range of nursing skills and it may be more appropriate to consult with them for things you may have seen a GP for in the past.

GP appointments are booked for 15 minutes. If you have several problems to discuss or feel you may require longer, please inform the reception staff at the time of booking.

Training

Registrars

We are a training practice involved in the training of future General Practitioners.  These are mostly doctors who have completed their hospital based training and are spending the final years in General Practice working towards their final GP exams (ST3).  We are also involved in training both doctors at earlier stages and medical students, all of whom are closely  supervised.  Trainees have full access to patients’ medical records. This is essential for the purpose of training and patient care.  The strict rules of confidentiality are adhered to at all times throughout the whole practice.  Videoing of consultations is an important part of training and assessment.  If the appointment you are attending is part of a surgery being videoed, you will be advised of this beforehand and of course you will be free to decline.

Nurses/Paramedics

We are also involved in the training of student nurses and paramedics.

These are students working towards a University degree, as well as qualified nurses returning to practice, perhaps after a career break.  A part of training to become a paramedic involves spending some time in General Practice, which both our nurse practitioners and doctors support with.

Trainees have full access to patients’ medical records. This is essential for the purpose of training and patient care.  The strict rules of confidentiality are adhered to at all times throughout the whole practice.
