Reduced capacity at the surgery

We continue to experience reduced capacity due to sickness across our GP team and will continue to do so at least until the end of February.  All appointment requests are triaged by a GP and appointments are allocated according to clinical need. There may be times that we have to switch eConsult off on-line to help us manage demand.  We will continue to take requests over the telephone or at our front desk but we may have to restrict requests to urgent medical problems only.

The NHS App found in 22.6 million pockets across England

The NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services and information on your smartphone or tablet. Millions of people are already using the NHS App to manage their health the easy way from the comfort of their homes.

If you are over the age of 16 the NHS App enables you to view your GP health record to help you better understand and manage your condition, without having to phone your GP surgery. With the App you can access your consultation notes, letters and test results. 

The NHS App also enables you to manage repeat prescriptions and easily change your nominated pharmacy, so you can send orders when it’s convenient for you. Each prescription ordered electronically saves GP practices three minutes of time and a patient 18 minutes, making it more convenient for people and freeing up frontline staff to do other important duties.

The App makes it easy to access your appointment information and manage your hospital appointments. You can also find out your NHS number and access NHS 111 online to get instant advice or medical help near you. 

New and innovative features will continue to be developed for the NHS App to help patients access convenient and high-quality care when and where they need it.
