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

Please inform us of any changes to your contact details as soon as possible. If we do not hold your correct contact information (address, telephone number and email address) we will not be able to contact you regarding results, referrals and review appointments. We can even send you text reminders for your existing appointments if we have your mobile number.

Travelling Abroad?

If you are planning to travel outside of the UK, don't forget to book in to see the Practice Nurse for immunisations and practical travel advice at least 8 weeks before you go! 

Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Fill out a Pre-Travel Risk Assessment Form by clicking HERE. You can also collect a form from Reception.
    Please be as specific about your destination as possible. For example, 'Ko Samui, Thailand' instead of just 'Thailand'.

  2. Once you have completed and returned the form, book a 20 minute travel consultation appointment with the Practice Nurse. Please be aware that the appointment must be at least 2 weeks after you have handed the questionnaire in. This will give the Nurse time to review the form, and order in any vaccinations as required.

  3. Attend your travel consultation for immunisations (if required), and practical advice on keeping well while you are away.

Vaccination Charges

Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS along with some travel vaccines being ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Other service provided (listed below) are also not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. 

The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
