As some of you may be aware ‘Patient Access’ – The website you use to book your appointments and order prescriptions online – Has been having some issues of late.

We wanted to let you know this is a wide spread problem and the Patient Access team are working on a fix for this.

The service is working intermittently, so do keep trying.

In the mean time, you can still contact the practice via telephone on 01389 811844 and our reception team can help with your enquiry.

Normal services have resumed!

Unfortunately we are experiencing a high volume of calls and workload (in particular prescription requests) due to last week’s severe weather period.

As a reminder, we do ask that you allow us two working days to process your prescription request, and for your local pharmacy to collect it from us. If you need your prescription before this time, you may be asked to collect your prescription from the surgery.

We are working as fast as we can to deal with the demand. Please bear with us.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.


March 5th, 2018

We will be continuing with our emergency surgeries only today due to the adverse weather and travel disruptions.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may be causing.
