NAMED GP

Due to NHS England's guidelines all patients have been allocated a named GP. At this practice your named GP would be the GP that you were registered with when  you first joined the practice. This does not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any doctor of your choosing as you would normally do.

ORGAN DONATION

More than 10.000 people in the UK currently need an organ transplant.  Of these, 3 a day will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.

Only 31% of us have joined the organ donor register, please help save lives by registering now.

Temporary Residents

TEMPORAY RESIDENTS / HOLIDAY MAKERS

If you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one, you can receive emergency treatment from a local GP practice for 14 days.

You can register temporarily with a local GP if you're ill or need medical advice while you're away from home – for example, if you're working, studying or on holiday. Your temporary GP will pass details of any treatment you have to your permanent GP, who will add the information to your medical records.

To register as a temporary resident with a GP, please contact the local surgery that covers the area you are staying in.

Please note: Our clinicians will need to know about any medication you are taking or any allergies you have.  Please make sure you have these details before your appointment, please contact your own GP if necessary.
