Parking for Patients

We would ask that you please have respect for our neighbours, particularly in St Anthony's Way, and not inconvenience them by blocking driveways etc whilst you are visiting the surgery. Also the disabled bay is strictly for disabled badge holders only - please do not park here if you are not disabled. If you can, maybe take the healthy option and park further away and take a short walk down the alleyway at the side of the surgery to connect you to the main surgery entrance. There are also bus stops located outside the back entrance of the surgery, at Holly Lane and by the Hungry Horse.

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.
