You are now able to book and cancel a limited number of GP and blood test appointments using the EMIS Access online system(blood tests as requested by your GP, only).
Additionally, this system provides online access to a portion of your medical record and allows all patients over 16 years of age to access our online prescription request system
Registering to Use EMIS Access
Those patients who wish to use EMIS Access to view their medical record will need to complete an application form. The form is downloadable HERE or, alternatively can be collected/completed at the surgery. You will need to come to the surgery, in person, with your application form and let us have sight of photo ID, which may, for example, be your passport or photocard driving licence.
The GP will need to review your application before allowing you access to the medical record. This process may take several weeks.
The receptionist should be able to register those patients who want to use EMIS Access solely to order prescriptions or book appointments immediately, without the need to refer to a GP. Once registered, she will give you your registration letter, containing your registration ID.

Meningitis B Vaccination
We were delighted to hear that the Meningitis B vaccination is going to be available on the NHS and will most likely be rolled out through the current childhood immunisation programme over coming months. We are not able to give the vaccine on the NHS at the present time but will update patients, via this website, as soon as we have any further information.
Named, Accountable, GP
Every one of our patients has a named, accountable GP, who is responsible for their care. this does not stop you from consulting with any GP in the practice team. If you aren't currently aware of the name of your accountable GP please ask at reception.
HEALTH CHECKS for those aged 40 - 74
Did you know that if your between 40 and 74 years of age, and you don't have a history of chronic disease, we can offer you a free health check? The check, which is offered once every five years, is a relatively straightforward (and painless!) way to assess your risk of developing heart disease, stroked, kidney disease or diabetes and do something about any "high risk" areas.
Health checks take around 20 - 30 minutes and are based on straightforward questions and measurements such as age, sex, family history, height, weight and blood pressure, as well as a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol level. Following the check you'll receive free, personalised advice about what you can do to stay healthy.
As the check is once every five years, you may not receive an invitation straight away but when you do it's worth investing a little time and effort in attending your appointment. Patients who haven't yet received an invitation, but would like a health check at an early date, are welcome to contact the surgery to request an appointment.
