Travelling in Europe

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
Do you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill? If so, you are a carer.
We are interested in identifying carers, especially those people who may be caring without help or support. We know that carers are often “hidden” looking after a family member or helping a friend or neighbour with day to day tasks and may not see themselves as a carer.
We feel that caring for someone is an important and valuable role in the community, which is often a 24-hour job that can be very demanding and isolating for the carer. We further believe carers should receive appropriate support by way of access to accurate information on a range of topics such as entitlement to benefits and respite care and not least, a listening ear when things get too much.
As a Carer, you are also entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. A Carer’s Assessment is a chance to talk about your needs as a carer and the possible ways help could be given. It also looks at the needs of the person you care for. This could be done separately, or together, depending on the situation. There is no charge for an assessment.
If you are a carer, please let the Practice now so that we can update our records and pass on your details to the Carers Service who can provide relevant information and advice, local support services, newsletter and telephone linkline. We can also refer you to Adult Care Services for a carer’s assessment. Please contact the surgery and ask if you can be referred for a carer's assessment.

Our online services are provided by EMIS Patient access.
Our patients can use our online services for booking an appointment with a doctor, re-ordering repeat medications and to view a summary of their medical record.
To register to use the online services ask our reception staff. You may be asked to provide 2 forms of identification (one of which being photographic).
This service is available for patients wishing to book an appointment with a doctor. Nurse appointments are very specific and need to be booked by speaking to a receptionist.
Patients can book a maximum of 2 appointments. We encourage patients to cancel their appointment if they no longer need it so we can give it to someone else.
We monitor our bookings to ensure that we are not creating an unfair advantage to patients with internet access.
Our patients are able to order their repeat prescriptions via the online services. We ask patients to please let us know where they would like to collect their prescription from. This process takes 48 working hours.
As of the 1st April 2015 patients are now able to view certain parts of their medical record. All patients who have access to the online services will be able to see a 'core' view of their record (which shows medications, allergies, and demographic details). Patients who wish to view more detail can request to do so.
Please contact reception if you wish to register to use the online services.
Please note test results are not available online as they require clinical interpretation and we currently do not have enough support information for patients regarding this.
