NOTICE FOR PATIENTS
WINTER PRESSURES AND ADDITIONAL APPOINTMENTS
In recognition of the additional pressures faced by the NHS at this time of year and in response to increasing demand we are adding some additional appointments into our system up until the end of February 2017.
These are 10-minute, book on the day appointments and are for patients who need to be seen urgently.
Our Reception staff will offer you one of these appointments, where appropriate, when you ring in for an urgent same day appointment.
Please note that these appointments are not available to book in advance as they are specifically designed to help with on-the-day urgent demand.
Please ask at Reception for further information.
Would you recommend our practice to your friends and family?
The NHS friends and family test (FFT) is an
important opportunity for you to provide feedback
on the services that provide your care and
treatment. Your feedback will help NHS England to improve services for everyone.

Our dispensary processes over 7,000 items a month and staff work hard to ensure that patients have their medication as quickly as possible. We are unable to speed up requests for patients as this will result in further delays for others awaiting their medication. Requests to process prescriptions in less than 48 hours may be declined.
