NHS England Consultation
A public consultation has been launched by NHS England on reducing the prescribing of over-the-counter medicines. If you would like to read or take part in the consultation please click here :
The consultation will close on Wednesday 14 March 2018
If you need to visit the emergency department, a minor injury unit or urgent care centre, you can see how long you may have to wait by using the online waiting time service, which shows the longest wait, how many people are waiting to be seen and how many people are in the department. It also includes opening times and x-ray availability.

Named Accountable GP for All Patients
Every patient has now been allocated a named GP who is responsible for your overall care at the practice. If you would like to know who your named GP is, please contact reception and they will be happy to inform you.
If you wish to change the name of your accountable GP, please let us know and we will make every reasonable effort to accommodate this request.
Having a named accountable GP does not restrict your entitlement to see any doctor in the practice.
As of the 02 JULY 2018 the Surgery will be switching all Online Prescription Ordering to ‘The Waiting Room 2’.
The ‘mysurgerywebsite’ link on our website which you currently use will cease to operate after this date.
Why are we changing?
- The Waiting Room provides convenient 24hr access to facilities previously available only by telephone or by visiting the surgery.
- The Waiting Room enables patients’ access to Appointment Requests as well as Medication Requests.
- Using one online ordering system will help to streamline the Dispensary’s prescription processing as well as offering an enhanced service to you the patient.
What do you need to do?
You need to register to use ‘The Waiting Room 2’ before 02 July 2018. To do this you need to:
- Ask Reception for an application form to complete, if your order medication for someone else you will need to ask for a proxy form which they will need to complete to allow you access.
- Provide Identification for example~
(Identification is essential as you will be accessing private information)
Once you have done this you will shortly receive a verification email, followed by your account codes to enable you to register.
We would kindly ask if...
* You could allow a minimum of 3 full working days (not including weekends) for us to process your prescriptions.
* You can order up to 10 days in advance.
Please Note: If you do not collect your prescription within 4 weeks it will be removed from the shelf.
If you have not already migrated to Waiting Room 2 and would like to order your medication through The Waiting-room online service, you will need to attend the practice in person, bring some form of identification with you and complete the relevant registration form.
