We are working hard on our flu vaccine delivery plans. Please Do Not telephone the practice to book an appointment - you will be contacted when it is time.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, how we contact you will be different at the moment. This is to limit face-to-face contact whenever possible and help stop the spread of coronavirus. Face to face appointments are available, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what is most appropriate for you and to keep staff and patients safe.
PLEASE BE KIND TO STAFF - THEY HAVE WORKED TIRELESSLY THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC TO KEEP OUR PATIENTS SAFE. Demand is extremely high and we are dealing with requests for many more appointments. Thank you.

Due to the unprecedented demand for new patient registration requests, we have had to temporarily suspend our registration process in an attempt to clear our current backlog.
Please accept our apologies and we hope to resume new registrations in the very near future. Please regularly check our website for up-to-date news.
Please follow the link below for information of alternative GP surgeries in the local area.
These fact sheets have been written to explain the role of UK health services, the National Health Service (NHS), to newly-arrived individuals seeking asylum. They cover issues such as the role of GPs, their function as gatekeepers to the health services, how to register and how to access emergency services.
Special care has been taken to ensure that information is given in clear language, and the content and style has been tested with user groups. Open the leaflets in one of the following languages
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.

The surgery are once again accepting a limited number of new patient registration requests (TN23 and TN24 postcodes ONLY within our boundary).
Due to the limited number of new patient registrations we can accept, all new patients should complete the relevant ADULT and/or CHILD Request for registration forms below and submit via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, where upon approval, patients will receive New Patient Registration Forms via the post. These forms should be completed, signed and returned to the surgery within 48 hours.
Please allow 14 days to receive your Registration form/s, before contacting the Surgery for information.
If we exceed our weekly quota of requests for new registrations, those who are unsuccessful, will be prioritised for the next week.
We hope that you will be happy with the services that we provide, however you do have the right to change your doctor by approaching the surgery of your choice and requesting acceptance onto their patient register. Your medical records will then be forwarded via the local primary care agency.
Equally if patients are threatening, violent or abusive towards any member of staff within the surgery they will be removed from the patient register.
To Select/Check a box on the form, double click the box with your mouse button and select Checked. At this stage of registration, we will accept a digital signature on the form.
