Data Sharing- Opt out: NHS England is sharing data from patient records into a centralised database. We are getting queries from patients enquring about how they opt out. Please note that this does not apply to NHS Scotland and any patient registered to a Scottish GP Practice does not need to opt out as we are not data sharing. All of your records will remain in practice and there will be no change here in Scotland.
When the practice is closed at evenings and weekends patients can contact NHS 24 by telephoning 111 for advice and guidance on medical matters. The service is available from 6pm-8am Monday to Friday and all weekend.
In an emergency, call 999.
For all our patients on repeat medication, please remember to check how much you have, and if you will run out around the holiday periods/practice closure dates, please submit your repeat request in plenty of time for us to action.
Be aware, that our standard turnaround time for prescription requests (48 hours) only counts WORKING DAYS, so we will not be processing any repeat prescription during days when we are closed.

Trying to get an appointment? - 400 appointments on average each 3 months
Every three months we lose around 400 appointments as patients book them but then fail to show up without letting us know they wish to cancel. This is a staggering 7 weeks of GP and Nurse time over the course of a year. Help us to help you. Your unwanted appointment could be used by someone else if you let us know. Please protect your NHS and use its services wisely.
