Patient Messaging Service

We have started using our new patient messaging service.
We will be able to communicate with you via text message, using automated technology that will enable us to contact you much more quickly and effectively. This will free up our staff to deal with those tasks only a human can do!

It is important that you keep us up-to-date with your current mobile phone number.

 Examples of how it will improve our communications include:

 • Automated appointment reminders 24 hours before. You can cancel your appointment by text using the word CANCEL, which immediately frees it up for others to book.
• Targeted health promotion campaigns, such as flu clinics.
• Reminders to attend specific clinics, e.g. diabetic, health checks, etc.
• NHS-required information such as smoking status: you can simply reply by texting one word to give us your status.
• Urgent communications: for example, if a GP calls in sick first thing in the morning, all patients in that surgery will be advised by text within minutes.

Of course, you can opt out by sending us a message or advising reception, but you would not be benefiting from the quick and non-intrusive communications from us that the system provides.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Named Accountable GP

From 1st April 2015, practices are required under the GMS contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered at our surgery are allocated to a named GP.  Please ask your doctor, or the reception staff, who your named GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accomodate your wishes.

Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice of your choosing.

Free Prescriptions for Cancer Patients

People being treated for cancer will be eligible for free prescriptions from 1st April 2009 and can apply for free prescriptions from today.

The new scheme, announced by the Prime Minister in September last year, abolishes NHS prescription charges for everyone undergoing treatment for cancer, the effects of cancer, or the effects of cancer treatment.

All cancer patients are entitled to apply for a 5-year exemption certificate, which will entitle them to all their NHS prescriptions free of charge, not just those relating to cancer. The certificate can be renewed as many times as necessary and will not have to be returned if the patient’s condition changes.

Patients should contact their doctor to apply for exemptions.
