Your Named GP
The 2015-2016 GP contract in England is now contractually required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children). All patients who are on the practice list will be allocated a named GP. All new patients who register with the practice will be allocated a named accountable GP within 21 days of registration. Patients aged over 75 have already been allocated a named accountable GP under existing provisions. Your named accountable GP will be made known to you when you next make an appointment.
VISION ON-LINE SERVICES
You are no longer able to order repeat prescriptions via this website. A new service was introduced in January 2015 called Vision Online Services, using the internet at your convenience, even when we are closed.
You will need to register your interest in this service with the Practice and once registered you will be given the information that will enable you to create your username and password. This will then enable you to make appointments and order prescriptions via the internet.
If you are interested in this service please contact the surgery. Photographic proof of identification will be required i.e. passport/driving licence when registering. Thank you.
