Third Party Consent
Should you wish for our team to be able to discuss any confidential medical information with a third party please complete the form below and return it to the surgery with ID.
Please note that consent can be withdrawn at any time in writing to the surgery.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
Access & Facilities
All patient facilities are located on the ground floor with level access. There are also parking bays in the carpark adjacent to our practice entrance which are reserved for patients displaying a disabled sticker.
For patients with a hearing aid we have a portable loop system. This can be available for use at the front desk and also in the consultation room.
For patients requiring a translation service please let the receptionist know when registering at the surgery.
Should you experience any difficulty, please discuss your requirements with the reception team.
