The practice is housed in three adjacent buildings in the grounds of the local community hospital. This is a friendly, stable partnership, with five of the Partners having worked together since 2002.

Patients over the age of 16 can register for internet access which will enable them to do the following:
- book a 'telephone consultation'
- book a 'Face to Face' appointment with their 'usual' GP'
- request repeat prescriptions
- change contact details
- view some parts of their electronic medical record [current medication, immunisations & allergies]
Patients need to request registration in person and cannot ask on behalf of someone else. Each person will need to bring two forms of identification: a form of photo ID (passport, driving licence, bus pass) and a recent utility bill/bank statement that confirms their name and address. Once we have seen and verified appropriate ID patients will be issued a document from the practice giving details of the registration process and an individual passcode to enable access.
Please note patients wishing to access parts of their medical record online [current medication, immunisations & allergies] will need to complete a patient agreement, available from reception - this is recommended by the RCGP and is intended to keep patients data as secure as possible. For patients requiring access to other areas of their record, please enquire at reception.
