PHONE CAPACITY AND NEW APPOINTMENTS SYSTEM
We are in the process of changing our telephone supplier and have recently upgraded our switchboard in order to add additional incoming capacity. We are also adding staff to reception to improve patient access.
Details for the new appointments system are available in the 'Appointments' section of this website. For more information on this type of appointment system, please visit http://www.productiveprimarycare.co.uk/doctor-first.aspx where there is a useful video regarding the experience of another practice, and their patients, as well as more detailed information. Patients can also make advance booking appointments by registering with the practice for 'on-line access'. (Please see the details below to register).

Education for Doctors
On the second Wednesday afternoon of every month the Doctors will be partaking in mandatory education sessions to keep their knowledge up to date. As a result there will be limited capacity for appointments on these afternoons.
Please bear this in mind when booking appointments
Patient Participation Group (PPG)
We have a patient forum which meets on an evening 2/3 times a year. The meetings provide an important opportunity to hear patient views and use feedback to help us shape practice policies. If you would like to be part of our forum please contact Gavin Richards on 0117 9799430.
We are a friendly, forward looking medical practice providing the highest standard of medical care delivered by a supportive team who are sensitive to the needs of the whole person.
Registering For Online Services
We are able to offer on line access for repeat prescriptions and appointments.
To safeguard patient information, in order to register for online appointments you will need to collect your ID and password from the surgery. You cannot register directly without collecting this information from the surgery.
To register for repeat prescriptions you will need to complete the registration details online.
We have just upgraded out clinical systems and will be activating enhanced online services over the coming months.
