 Accountable/Named GP for ALL Patients - The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP Contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice as you currently do. Your accountable GP is the doctor you are registered with. If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask a receptionist when you are next at the surgery.

If you have an online services account you can now view a summary of your medical record online. If you would like an account see the information on this page or ask at reception.

 

NHS Health Checks are available for patients aged 40 - 74 years. This check is part of a national scheme to help prevent onset of health problems. Patients will be invited for a check once every 5 years READ MORE

All repeats will be dealt with by your nominated pharmacy and you will be informed by them when the last repeat is dispensed. At this time, you will need to contact the surgery for a further prescription. You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time by contacting the surgery.

When Should I Worry?

Having an ill child can be a very scary experience for parents. If you understand more about the illness it can help you to feel more in control. This booklet is for parents (and older children) and deals with common infections in children who are normally healthy.

Download the booklet


Fevers

Most symptoms of a fever in young children can be managed at home with infant paracetamol. If the fever is very high, they may have an infection that needs treating with antibiotics.  

 


Head Lice

Head lice are insects that live on the scalp and neck. They may make your head feel itchy. Although head lice may be embarrassing and sometimes uncomfortable, they don't usually cause illness. However, they won't clear up on their own and you need to treat them promptly


Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds (also known as epistaxis) are fairly common, especially in children, and can generally be easily treated.
