PROBLEMS WITH THE PRACTICE TELEPHONES
We continue to have intermittent problems with the surgery telephones. This is something that is beyond our control and our phone providers are investigating. Please be patient with the reception staff as they are trying to do their best with ongoing problems. If you are trying to book at GP appointment please have a look on line. Also flu appointments are available to book on line too.
Flu appointments now available to book for anyone aged 65 years and over or aged 18-64 years and at risk. Please book online using an age appropriate slot or phone and book with reception.
Due to issues with the supply of the vaccines we have an extended period for running the clinics right through to early December. The clinics are set up to align with the vaccine delivery dates so please be patient and bear with us.

Nominate a pharmacy
We are asking all our patients to nominate a local pharmacy so that we can send your prescriptions safely an securely via electronic systems to your nominated pharmacy. This is a much safer and quicker way of getting prescriptions to the pharmacy.
If you come into surgery to collect a prescription the reception staff will ask you to nominate a pharmacy and will put this onto the system for you at that time. The next time you are due a prescription it will go direct to the chemist.
This helps us to manage our prescription workload and may actually mean that you can get your prescriptions more quickly.

We operate a named GP list.
Patients are registered with Dr Campbell or Dr Louca. You will be allocated one of these GPs. The doctor you are registered to will be your accountable GP.
The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) is England's central, authoritative source of health and social care information. The Health and Social Care Act 2012 empowered the HSCIC to require GP practices to send it confidential patient data in limited circumstances, i.e. when directed to do so by the Secretary of State for Health, NHS England or when receiving a mandatory request from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), NICE or Monitor. The HSCIC will process this confidential data in a secure environment and will only release data where there is a legal basis.
You do have the right to object to your data being disclosed to the HSCIC, please put this in writing to the Practice Manager if this is the case and a specific code will be added to your record stating that you have objected to this.
If you would like further information about this, please ask reception for a leaflet, or call to speak to member of the team. You can also follow the links below to read the document 'Frequently asked questions for patients', and find out more information about the HSCIC.
