Primary Care Networks

GP practices are working together with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in groups of practices known as primary care networks (PCNs). To find out more, click here and here. So far, being part of the PCN has allowed us to to have an in-house pharmacist, social prescriber, health coach and physiotherapist!

Sickness Certificates

The first 28 days of sickness do not require a certificate from your GP. If your employer insists on a sickness form, complete a Self-Certification form, which can be found here

Please ask staff to issue the usual sick notes, NOT the GP's.


We do NOT do sick notes for suspected Coronavirus

Sick Notes do NOT need to be SIGNED. We will text them to you, as we do not want you to come to surgery to pick them up. You can print them or email them to your employer.

We are not allowed to write letters telling your employer that you should be allowed to work from home. That's your HR department's decision, based on what medical conditions you declare to them. If they don't believe you, we can write a letter confirming your medical problems for £30 in advance. We have been overwhelmed with such requests, understandably, and we cannot guarantee a time frame for this.

Keep Your Details up to Date
Please do update your contact details ("Your Contact Details" box at the bottom of screen) with home & mobile & email. You will receive appointment reminders and occasional requests for information by text.

 

PHONE CALLS may be recorded for your protection.

 

 

patient survey

A safe space to share your views 

In every GP Surgery, there is a Patient Participation Group (PPG).

Anyone registered to a GP practice over the age of 16, or who is the carer of a patient at the practice can join.

It´s an opportunity for patients, carers, and practice staff to meet and discuss practice issues and patient experience to help improve the service.

For a short video about the PPG, click here.

We would like to know how we can improve our service to you and how you perceive our surgery and staff. 

To help us with this, we have a patient representation group. We ask the members of this representative group some questions from time to time, such as what you think about our opening times or the quality of the care or service you received. We will contact you via email with dates of meetings and their agendas. You don't have to attend, we understand your time is precious. If you have any thoughts about the items on the agenda, or anything else about the surgery, you can reply to the email.

We aim to have patients from as broad a spectrum as possible to get a truly representative sample. We need young people, workers, retirees, people with long term conditions and people from all ethnic groups.

If you are happy for us to contact you occasionally by email please click the link below to open the sign-up form and complete all the fields, or give us a call at the practice.
