e-Consults – Important Update to Patients:

Please note that with immediate effect, the e-Consult service, for the Practice, has had to be adapted, to make it possible for us to offer on the day GP appointments.

Once the day’s e-Consult allocated slots have been used, the service will be switched off until the next working day.

This is to help us to safely manage demand and ensures that our Doctors are able to respond to your e-Consult enquiry within the correct time scale.

If you find that the e-Consult service is unavailable, please try using it again, on the next working day.

The e-Consult service is continually under review, and we thank you for your understanding of this slight change, at this time.

Nhs Digital has recently announced it is setting up a new primary care data collection service.

There is more information about this under the 'NHS Digital - GPDfPR' heading

Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
