New Telephone System

On Tuesday 10th May we adopted a new telephone system. We would like to thank patients for their patience during this transition period.
All incoming and outgoing calls will be recorded for monitoring and training purposes. 

COVID-19 Vaccinations

We ware currently vaccinating patients aged 75 and above and those who are immunocompromised as part of the governments spring booster campaign.  If you fall in either of these groups and it is 6 months since last vaccination and haven't been contacted yet but would like the booster please call the surgery. 


  • You can request your repeat prescriptions online and even get it straight from your nominated pharmacy. No paper, no visit to surgery! It will be faster for you to get your medication, no paper included so save some trees, and might release a bit of our staff time. 
  • You can book appointments online!

These can be made at the desk or by telephone. We offer appointments  2 weeks  ahead of the appointment date. Currently we only offer medically urgent appointments on the day. The appointments are released at 8.30am each day for morning appointments and at 2.00pm each day for afternoon appointments.

Complaints procedure

                        Comments, Complaints & Compliments Procedure    

If you have a comment, complaint or compliment about the service you have received from the Doctors, Nurses or any member of the staff, please let us know.

Our complaints procedure complies with the NHS complaints procedure.            

When to complain

We hope that most problems can be sorted out easily and quickly, often at the time they arise and with the person concerned. If your problem cannot be sorted out in this way     and you wish to make a complaint, we would like you to let us know as soon as possible - ideally within a matter of days or at most a few weeks - because this will enable us to establish   what happened more easily. If it is not possible to do that, please let us have details of your complaint:                

  - within 6 months of the incident that caused the  problem;  


- within 6 months of discovering that you have a problem,

We have the discretion to waive this time limit if there are good reasons why you could not complain earlier.

How to complain

You can do this by filling in one of the slips at reception, asking to speak to the Practice Manager either on the telephone or in person. You can also complain by letter if you so wish

Complaints should be addressed to the Practice Manager or any of the Doctors. Alternatively, you may ask for an appointment with the Practice Manager in order to discuss your concerns.

She will explain the complaints procedure to you and will make sure that your concerns are dealt with promptly.  It will be a great help if you are as specific as possible about your complaint.

All comments and complaints are welcomed and taken seriously.

What we shall do We shall acknowledge your complaint either at the time you make it personally, or within two working days of receipt of completed slip or by letter. We shall look into your complaint and refer back to you ten working days of the date of receipt. If for any reason a full response will take longer than 10 days you will be advised and we will explain why.

When we look into your complaint, we shall aim to:

  • find out what happened and what went wrong
    • make it possible for you to discuss the problem with those concerned, if you would like this
    • make sure you receive an apology, where this is appropriate
    • identify what we can do to make sure the problem does not happen again. 

    Complaining on behalf of someone else

    Please note that we keep strictly to the rules of medical confidentiality. If you are complaining on behalf of someone else, we have to know that you have their permission to do so. We will require written consent by the patient concerned, unless they are incapable (because of illness) of providing this, or under the age of 16 when a parent can complain on their behalf.

    Complaint Resolution

    We hope that our Practice Procedure will resolves any complaints and believe this gives us the best opportunity of putting right whatever has gone wrong and of improving our service.

    If you remain unhappy after local resolution then you can complain to the Health Service Ombudsman. The Ombudsman is completely independent of the NHS and Government. You can contact the Ombudsman at:

    Tel: 0345 015 4033



    A Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) has been established in every Clinical Commissioning Group. PALS are not part of the complaints procedure itself but they might be able to resolve your concerns informally or can tell you more about the complaints procedure and independent complaints advocacy services.
