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.

At our flu clinic held last Saturday, we managed to immunise 1,110 patients from the at-risk groups and also gave over 70 shingles vaccines too. If you were unable to attend the clinic, please call the surgery any afternoon to book a flu appointment. At-risk housebound patients are being visited in the next few weeks to be given their immunisations at home. Children who are eligible to receive either the flu vaccine or the Fluenz nasal spray (under 4s) will shortly be receiving a letter giving information about our Children's flu clinic which most likely will be held during the half term week

7th October - Patient Access Update

This system is now partially fixed. If you haven't already registered and are getting an error message "Dr Martin's surgery is not participating in this scheme", please contact the surgery and ask for Toni (between 9am and 12.30pm) or email to enable registration to the Patient Access system. N.B. If you have previously registered you will still be able to order online prescriptions, and eventually to be able to book online appointments etc. Again, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We have been using this system successfully since July but with recent media attention and other surgeries now joining this system, the system has developed a fault (for all surgeries) which the software developers are still working on.

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.
