As of today, Wednesday 1st November 2023 the NHS and our practice want to give people better ways to see their personal health information online. We know that people want to be able to access their health records. It can help you see test results faster. It also lets you read and review notes from your appointments in your own time.

We're now letting you see all the information within your health record. If you are over 16 and have an online account, such as through the NHS AppNHS website, or other GP online services and apps, you will now automatically be able to see all future information entered on your medical record. Some people can already access this feature, this won't change for you.

This means that you will be able to see records from your appointments, as well as test results and any letters that are saved on your records. This only applies to records from your doctor (GP), not from hospitals or other specialists, although you will be able to see any letters that hospitals or specialists send to your doctor (GP). You will only be able to see information from today, Wednesday 1st November 2023. For most people, access will need to be granted by the practice admin team as we need to ensure you are given the right access for security reasons. Please speak to the amin team.

Your doctor (GP) or other clinician from the practice may talk to you to discuss test results before you are able to see some of your information on the app. A member of the practice may also talk to you before you are given full record access to make sure that having access is of benefit to you. If you are concerned that seeing your records is not right for you, you should speak to your practice.

These changes only apply to people with online accounts. If you do not want an online account, you can still access your GP health record by requesting this information via reception. The changes also only apply to personal information about you. If you are a carer and would like to see information about someone you care for, speak to reception staff.

The NHS App, website and other online services are all very secure.  You'll need to make sure you protect your login details. Do not share your password with anyone as they will then have access to your personal information.

If you do not want to see your health record, or if you would like more information about these changes, please speak to your GP or reception staff. You can also read more by going to

Appointments update

For appointments from 4th April onwards, we will be trialling a new system for GP appointments, where you will be offered the choice of a timed telephone or face to face consultation.  These appointments will be time limited, and we hope that patients will make suitable choices based on their clinical needs.

The Reception team will advise you of the best method of appointment if you are unsure which option to choose.  We hope that you bear with us during this change as we come out of the pandemic restrictions. 

From 1st July Our Private income policy and charges have changed please see "services" more details

Our phone lines are overwhelmed at the moment, we can only hold a certain number of people in the queue, after that you should get a message stating no call handlers are available.  Our provider has advised that the sheer volume of calls means that this doesn't always happen. We would suggest calling after Tuesday when the phone lines are typically quieter. You could also complete an econsult form or email us at
