Online booking system – new log-in details
We have recently changed our clinical system to one that is used widely across other local healthcare services. This new system will help improve how our healthcare professionals share important information to benefit your care.

Our new online booking system is now up and running, please contact us to receive new log-ins to enable you to book an appointment or order repeat prescriptions online.

If you are already registered with our online booking service for appointments and repeat prescriptions, you do not need to re-register. However as this is a different system, you will need new log-in details – please request these now by contacting the surgery either in person or by telephone. Log in details can be given to you in person or posted to your address.

Please note the new log-in details won’t be automatically issued, you will need to contact us to request these. Thank you for your co-operation.

Information Sharing

How sharing information in your medical records can help the NHS to provide better care - you have a choice to make, please read the full article.

A modern information system has been developed, whcih will make increased use of information from medical records with the intention of improving health services. The system is being delivered by the Health & Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) & NHS England on behalf of the NHS.

It is important that the NHS can use this information to get a complete picture of what is happening across health & social care & to plan services according to what works best. The new system will provide joined-up information about the care received from all of the different parts of the health service, including hospitals & GP practices.

Your date of birth, full post code, NHS Number & gender rather than your name will be used to link your records in a secure system, managed by the HSCIC. Once this iinformation has been linked a new record will be created. This new record will not contain information that identifies you. The type of information shared, and how it is shared, is controlled by law & strict confidentiality rules.
