Newly registered patients are asked to fill in a health questionnaire, and supply details of regular repeat prescriptions if applicable. It does take some time for your old records to arrive at the surgery and it helps us provide better care for you during this time if we have some background information.

You will be registered with an individual doctor as the practice runs personal lists. If your doctor is away you will be offered an appointment with the duty doctor or a locum. If you wish to see a particular partner for a certain medical condition, please ask the receptionists who will try where possible to accommodate your requirements

You will have the opportunity to feedback every time you are in the practice, after an appointment or attending for administrative things such as repeat prescription or blood test results.

As a patient registered with the practice you can give feedback after each and every contact if you want to. As a carer or relative you can also give feedback.
