Online Booking And Repeat Prescriptions

If you would like to make appointments with doctors and/or request repeat medication online, please ask a receptionist to enrol you into EMIS Access. You will be given the details you need to register for this. If you wish to enrol another adult in your family we will need their signed consent for you to do so. They must be aware that you will be able to access their repeat medications and they must state that this is acceptable. Parents may NOT register children after the age of 11.

E-mails

This is to advise you that currently the Doctors cannot reply to patients' email queries concerning health issues because of information governance relating to patient confidentiality.  Please restrict email enquiries to administrative queries only, not clinical.  If you need to contact the Doctor please telephone the Practice in the usual way or make an appointment to see the Doctor. 

 Medicals

For patients wishing to book medicals with the Doctors please contact the receptionists directly rather than trying to make the appointment electronically via EMIS Access.  The reason for this is that different medicals require varying amounts of time.  Thank you.
