CARE NAVIGATION FOR OUR PATIENTS
A new signposting process called ‘Care Navigation’ is being introduced in our GP practice to help you see the right person, in order to get the right care, in the most appropriate place and first time.
When you next phone for an appointment to see your GP, you may be invited to share details of why you think you need to see a GP.
Please be assured that you do not have to share this information if you would prefer not to. It simply helps the practice to better understand your needs and make sure you are seeing the most appropriate professional for your care or treatment.
All our staff take patient confidentiality extremely seriously, therefore any information you share will not be shared with anyone else.
If you do not wish to give this information, you will not be denied an appointment with your GP.
If you have any concerns, please get in touch with us.

Practice CQC Inspection report
The surgery was inspected by the CQC in November 2015. We were delighted to receive an overall rating of Good, with Outstanding for caring. Click on the link to the right under 'further information' to read the full report.
Named Accountable GP
All GP Practices are now required to provide their patients with a 'named, accountable GP'.
The named accountable GP takes responsibility for the co-ordination of appropriate services required under the practice's NHS contract and ensures that they are delivered to each of their patients where required (based on the clinical judgement of the named accountable GP).
All of our patients, including children, now have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care.
Please note that this does NOT prevent you from seeing any GP of your choice in the practice as you currently do now, and you will not see any change in the way care is delivered to you by us.
Online Access to Services
If you wish you can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP or Nurse, to request repeat prescriptions for medications you take regularly and to look at medication, allergies and adverse reactions within your medical record. There is also an App which you can download to your mobile to give you access to the service on the go. You can use this service in addition to using the telephone and calling into the surgery. It's your choice.
