Please fund general practices fairly, and reverse the effects of your decision to withdraw the minimum practice income guarantee (MPIG), which is threatening large numbers of surgeries with bankruptcy. Please change the funding formula to take account of the effects of deprivation, both inner city and rural so that all practices are fairly funded.
Care Quality Commissioning Inspection
We had our inspection on the 6th January. We passed all 5 standards the full report is available to read by clicking on the link below
Our new appointment system is now in full swing.
How it works:
- Faster access
- Speak to the doctor of your choice
- Your medical problems being dealt with on the day you call
- Less advance-bookings
- Phone lines open at 8.30am
Over time, we have taken on board patients comments about our current appointment system, and have heard the need for things to change for better access to our GP's and of patients choice.
Our new system will allow you to speak to a doctor on the day that you call, who will then book an appointment for you (usually on the same day), if that is what you require.
All patients will speak to a doctor on the day by telephone. Some patients may not have to come in to see the doctor, if by the end of the phone call, and only if both you and the doctor are happy that your problem has been fully dealt with you may not need a face – to – face appointment.
(For more details on how this will work, please use the appointment tab above)
- No pre-bookable appointments once our new system starts
- Call on the day to see a GP
- A GP will arrange an appointment for you.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE: OUR PHONE LINES WILL OPEN FROM 8.30AM AND WILL REMAIN OPEN ALL DAY UNTIL 6.30PM.
The Practice is a friendly, dynamic, innovative and well organised practice with 4 Partners. We are a university linked training practice commited to undergraduate and post graduate teaching.
