Welcome to Northdown Surgery:

We hope to use our surgery website as a way of presenting all our patients with an up to date resource for all information relating to our practice. We will keep it current with any news, developments & details that are relevant to the practice and our patients.

As well as a source of information about our Practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you use the website as a useful resource with links to other reliable websites for health related information. If there is topical health information we will also add this to the website.

Have a look around our website and please do send us some feedback. We can use your thoughts to improve our online services and further develop the website to make it a more useful, practical application for our patients.

If you are already a patient, we would be very grateful if you could click on "Your clinical Record" and provide us with up-to-date lifestyle information so that we can ensure your records are updated.

From 1st July 2014, to order prescriptions online you will need first to register at Please note that it will take one working day for your registration to be accepted and before you will be able to view and order medications online. Only your repeat medications will appear in the listing. Any items on acute issue will need to be requested via the comments box. The same time scales will apply for prescription processing as before. Please note that if you wish to change from your current pharmacy, it will be necessary for you to complete a Northdown Surgery Pharmacy Consent Form and hand it in to the surgery.

Whilst we appreciate that a change of system is not always welcome or convenient, now that you have your own ID/pin number and password we will be able to offer more services through this system. The next stage of this process will be to enable booking of appointments online and eventually it is planned for you to be able to view test results etc.

Half-day Closures

Saturday appointments
We offer a range of pre-booked appointments on a Saturday morning - some with the Nurse, some with the GP. Unfortunately we are unable to book certain types of appointments with the Nursing team as there are no laboratory collection services available on a Saturday (i.e. blood tests, urine tests etc). Please ask the Reception Team about Saturday clinics.

Care Data Extraction
A recent Health and Social Care Act allows the NHS to extract, in certain circumstances, Personal Confidential Data (PCD) from GP practices throughout England without seeking prior patient consent. The anonymised data will be used to plan, develop and improve patient care and services. The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) will use the GP Extraction Service (GPES) to obtain anonymous information from all GP practices in England for specific and approved purposes. Patients can choose not to allow their personal anonymised data to be used for this purpose. For further information, please contact the HSCIC on 0845 300 6016 or go to

Summary Care Records
You may have received a letter from NHS Connecting for Health, telling you that information from your GP-held medical record is to be uploaded to the National NHS Summary Care Record system. READ MORE HERE

Additional Services
If, when you see your GP, they decide you need an Ultrasound scan, they may be able to refer you to the service based in our Practice. Your GP will give you the details.
