We are changing our computerised Clinical System on 31st July 2014. Read about how this important change will impact on the service we offer and improve the care we offer by following this link: IMPORTANT NEWS FOR ALL PATIENTS
We are now well into our new appointment system and we are recieving some excellent feedback from patients! The indications are that appointments are easier to get, waiting times in the surgery have reduced and generally things are much improved. We hope this is your experience too. Please continue to give us your feedback to help us further improve our services to you.
In line with most other local GP Practices, we are changing our repeat prescription turn around times from 48 to 72 hours. This means that patients will need to allow THREE working days to collect repeat prescriptions. We feel that this change reflects more acurately the level of service we are currently able to offer, given our ever increasing prescribing workload. By offering a more realistic time scale, we hope to reduce any frustrations that may inadvertantly be caused to our patients.
