DNA Rate

In January 126 appointments were wasted by patients failing to attend.

Each missed appointment costs the NHS £24.50, so this amounts to £3,000+ gone to waste in just one month, by just one GP practice!

If you are unable to keep your appointment please can you notify the surgery as soon as possible. If we hold your correct mobile number, you can even cancel your appointment via text message.

In January we sent 2726 appointment reminders via text, and took a total of 83 text cancellations. We would like to thank everyone who cancelled an appointment which they no longer required.


Staff Changes

We are delighted to welcome our new receptionist Sam to the team.


We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival. 

For more information on the other type of students we have, please Click Here

List of Services and Charities

Produced with the Northgate Village Surgery Patient Participation Group (PPG).

The PPG has worked together with the Surgery to produce a handy booklet containing details of local and national charities and services on a variety of conditions and topics.

Copies of the booklet are available in the waiting room at the Surgery.



Here is a useful A-Z Guide To Alcoholism & Depression 



Consult with your GP online - 'eConsult'

We now have a new service which allows you to get specific self-help information, log queries with our administration team, and get advice from your GP without needing an appointment!

You will be asked to complete an online questionnaire about your symptoms, and this will be passed on to either your preferred GP or the Duty Doctor, depending on the nature of your problem. We will then contact you with advice, a prescription, or to book an appointment if it is required.
