Appointment Reminders

Would you like a reminder of your appointment time and date sending to your mobile phone? If so please contact the reception team on 01274 697600.

Patients Not Attending

During May 2015, 77 patients failed to attend a prebooked appointment with one of the doctors wasting 13hrs 20mins of surgery time.

61 patients didn't attend prebooked nurse appointments wasting 16hrs 20mins of surgery time and 18 patients didn't attend with the attached teams (physio etc) wasting 7hrs 35mins.

Repeated missed appointment will result in the patient being removed from the practice list and will need to register at another surgery.

Electronic Prescribing

In May 2015,the practice and its pharmacies went live on a system called Electronic Prescribing. Initially this will be used just for patients who have regular repeat medications. This system has the benefit of a greater security between the practice and the pharmacy. As a practice, we encourage all our patients to have a conversation with their pharmacy about the scheme and make a nomination of receiving pharmacy as soon as possible. Please note patients who already have a chemist receiving their prescriptions still need to have this conversation at the pharmacy.
