Extended Hours Appointments
We are now offering early morning appointments on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and evening appointments on Monday. These appointments are bookable in advance and are intended to support patients who work full time and struggle to attend the surgery during core hours. Appointments are available with a GP, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse and Health Care Support Worker.

If you are unable to attend for an appointment please contact the surgery as soon as possible so we can offer your appointment to someone else.
In December 2017 96% of our patients attended their booked appointment - thank you for treating our time and your service with such respect. Unfortunately we still lose an average of 30 hours clinical time per week because of non-attendance. Please cancel your appointment in time for someone else to use it.
Appointment Confirmation by SMS (Text) Message
We can send you confirmation and reminder messages for all appointments. Please complete a consent form at reception.
What is care.data?
The NHS is changing and services are being restructured. These reforms will impact upon the way that clinical data are collected, shared and analysed. Under the powers of the Health and Social Care Act 2012 (HSCA), the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) can, under certain circumstances, require Personal Confidential Data (PCD) from GP practices without seeking patient consent. One of the first initiatives using these new powers is the care.data service. This service has been commissioned by NHS England and will be delivered by the HSCIC. The HSCIC is England’s central authoritative source of health and social care information.
Care.data will make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving healthcare, for example by ensuring that timely and accurate data are made available to NHS commissioners and providers so that they can better design integrated services for patients. In the future, approved researchers may also benefit. The HSCIC will link PCD extracted from GP systems with PCD from other health and social care settings.
