Appointment system for December/January
We have reviewed the appointment system for December in order to manage the expected peak demand with winter pressures. As such, with effect from 1st December 2015 to 8th January 2016, GP appointments will be on the day booking. Each day, GPs will telephone triage patient calls.
We are continuously working on meeting access to the Practice and we are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Asif Khan, who will be joining the Practice on Monday 11th January 2016.

Friends and Family
From 1st December 2014 it was a contractual requirement that all GP practices undertake the NHS Friends & Family Test (FFT)The FFT is a feedback tool that supports the principal that people who use the NHS services have the oppertunity to provide their feedback on their experience that can be used to improve service. The test just involves two questions with a multiple choice answers and a comment box if you want to leave a response.
As a patient if you could just take a little time to complete the Friends and Family Test it would be very much appreciated. Just decide which site you want to register you views and click and complete.

Named Allocated GP - for all patients
From April 2015, all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP.
Your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. They will also work with other relevant health and care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs.
These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any doctor, of your choosing within the surgery, as you would normally do.
If you want to know who is your allocated GP is then please contact the surgery and speak to a member of staff who can advise you.
